We all know how popular Instagram is and its the social platform that is now getting businesses booming as it is to me becoming one of the best free advisement apps. I personally love it because when it comes to photos you can almost post anything that helps promote your business. The hashtags are the things on Instagram that really gets the traffic following as people use the hashtags as a fast way of finding something that people are looking for on Ig. The #Hashtags also make it easier for people to find your artwork and find models they photographers may want to collaborate with. So the hashtags has its benefits and if used popular along with a link back to your page. Then you will be in the right direction as once you start putting as many hashtags ONLY related to what your work is, then your work or business will start to grow. Never do you want to post something that is not related to what your trying to sell or promote. Because that gonna lead to people looking wondering why this is even in that hashtags. If you need help with some good ideas for hashtags or don’t know a hashtag to use the best advice I can give you is too google search it as they have many articles and hashtags to use in certain situations. I will post a article showing how to use hashtags soon. That’s my intake on hashtags let me know what you think and leave your comments and/or questions below.
Tumblr will permanently ban adult contentfrom its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tells The Verge.
Me as an artist I post my art on tumblr becuase my more explicit content(nude) content I can’t post on here becuase of the terms and agreements I have with Google. So I can’t post on here and use social media sites to share my content with users. So for models I know and other artist that would post their work up there we all had to take our artwork down to go with the terms of tumblr.
It really hurts us becuase were not using it for any bad purpose just to display our work free of charge to people. But I will have more on other alternatives on what to do if you were affect by this new policy.

This is the Anniversary of my website Brownscomicart and I just finished renewing my subscription with WordPress still keeping my Business Account. Which for those that don’t know it is about $299 a year to have a business subscription with WordPress but the good thing with it is you have 24/7 access to support as well as an very unlimited access to premium themes and access to plugins and can upload your own plugin that you may have created or purchased by another developer. So every year as an artist and a Business Man I’m always trying to find ways to do more with my business and to make more in profit instead of just ditching out money to run the business. Currently I’ve probably only made less than $100 in profit just from running the business and that not a bad start, I know and I learn from a lot of bloggers on here that you are always gonna lose money when you start something new and will be spending a lot of money just to get it up and running. So having a good business plan and knowing what your goals will be for the next year is a good way to start. Here are my goals for the 2019 Fiscal Year….
- Commissions! I will be doing Commissions starting the New Year and I’ve already set up my Commission Page just setting up the Contract Details.
- Keeping all my Social Media Outlets up-to-date. I will use more Social Media outlets to help with my free advertising.
- Spending less on operating expenses, tools, and supplies.
- Making revenue on Google ad-sense ads by keeping my blog updated to increase traffic. Trying to make profit with ads on my blog to pay for the expenses of the blog.
- Getting Clients and letting subscribers post their art on my blog with their own art gallery.
- Offering Clients the option to be a premium member where they may be able to create their own profile page and describe who they are and post in the artist tips page giving themselves credit for the post as advertisement for them and there business/Art.
- Attending more Comic Cons and Business events to interact with the community and other fellow artist to get ideas and share my art and business ideas.

Art is everywhere and can be considered everything. Our chairs, bed, cars, table, etc. all are a creation a work of art. You know sometimes how people are shy or nervous about either drawing a certain piece of art or about posting a picture because people sometimes are worried about backlash they may get. I’ve gotten backlash before and a lot of it was from the women I’ve drawn some saying why I would draw women that is exposing a lot of skin. Which in all honesty its art that’s the way I view it and the way other artist view it. But I learned and am now a lot older and understand that their is nothing wrong with me and the art I draw its people in general. As an artist your just trying to create a nice piece of art that you like its not about if another person likes it or not what’s most important it what you like and feel when you draw the picture. If they don’t like it they can just leave or look away simple as that. But even when people make nasty comments or are just trying to be mean when you post a piece of artwork don’t let that discourage you because that’s their opinion and sometimes people don’t know the right way to tell someone something when trying to either help them or offer advice. So do what you love never be afraid to draw or post your art and creations on your blog, social media, etc. Just follow the rules and respect them of course of what the terms of agreement are with the websites. Don’t post anything that goes against the rules, their are social media sites where you can post your more graphic art if you need to. The same goes with Instagram as even with models they may post photos from a photo shoot they had but once again this is their life and what they love to do. They need to promote themselves to show what they can do and the work I see with a lot of these Instagram Models is very good and impressive. That’s one of the reasons why I draw some of the Models from Instagram because that is a good inspiration to me. Follow your dream and do what you love and you also have to draw what people want to see. That’s how you get a lot of follower which for a blog leads for more traffic and then it gives you more work to for commissions. So never be afraid do what you love and promote yourself as much as you can. Below is a drawing of Instagram Model Shelley Golden and once again she is a very pretty model if you want go follow her show the support and I hope you enjoy my drawing of her. Thank You for reading and enjoy my friends!
Art has always been my passion and it has always been my hobby. And over the years I’ve gotten better and better with the help of being in art class and doing some research and watching videos on YouTube. I was very young when my mom taught us the basics of how to draw and drawing Runs in my family.
But my career started when with the help of my Uncle who is a successful Entrepreneur and business man help my create my first wordpress blog. I was so thankful because I had no idea on how to create a website and the only way I was learning was from a business class I took in school called NFTE which had us using computer skills like Microsoft PowerPoint. Which was teaching me how to make and design a webpage/Website from sctrach.
Then I learned the basics of using Adobe Photoshop. I started with with Photoshop Elements then I upgraded to the bigger software Photoshop CS6 which the software is beautiful. But I learned to use it in terms of editing photos, doing digital art work, and coloring my own comics that I inked and drew first. So below I have a small gallery showing the work I’ve done. I am working to color all my art and to keep displaying them and I’m about to keep posting some of them hear and on some of my other social media sites. I will also be updating my about me page and will be deleting my contact page and merging it with my about me page. Thank you for reading and for being a subscriber!
Now I’ve blogged many post on things like the benefits to social media, using as many sites as possible, and making sure to take advantage of using a logo for your business. All of these can be also considered as promoting your business. Promoting your business especially when your trying to sell a product is very important because unless you are very well known or your popularity is high and you already have good business sells then you need a way to get known and recognized. Promoting in a way is a form of advertising and when promoting remember you still want to do so with as many free assets you have access too. Never be afraid to promote your business because it does pay off. Its just like with our websites/blogs, we have to promote our websites so people will find out and read our profile. If you have a ad-sense account for ads you know what I mean because it is based on clicks and traffic. So in order to make revenue you need to promote yourself so you can build traffic and start to make some business. I’ll be posting soon in my Business Tools page ways to help promote you business. Thanks for Reading!
Well, for those who haven’t heard of LinkedIn or don’t know what it is it’s a business and employee-oriented service that operators via websites and mobile apps. Its mostly used for professional networking where employers can post jobs and job seekers posting their CVs. You can download the LinkedIn app either on the Googleplay Store or Apple iTunes Store.
It also gives you the ability to create your own profile and resúme. That is the reason why I believe you should create a LinkedIn account because it free and it gives the ability for people to find you and know your skills and capabilities. This is just not for owning a business it’s also for individual people trying to build their profile in reference to building there own career.
When you do create an account you want to add as much work as you done over your entire career. Don’t hold anything back make sure to put all the experience you have an even example of your work. The more you gave the better, people will like what they see and you want to write and make it as professional as possible. That’s another reason why having a blog is a good thing too so people have something to go back on.
In this world today you can always find work and make a descent pay it just takes the right employer to find us. And you also have to put yourself out there and show that this is the career you want. I’ll have a artist tip page soon on this subject but I just wanted to post this as advice for the benefits of using LinkedIn. Thanks for reading and I’d like to hear your thoughts!
