This is a list of artists that I draw inspiration from. I feel like they are doing a wonderful job of marketing their work and providing their community with pathways to connect with it.
All of them are in different places in their career, so I think this will be helpful for emerging and professional artists. Minnie and Ten Hundred have built a strong and supportive community on both YouTube and Patreon.
If you're looking up to what I have done as an artist, I am looking up to them. I encourage you to take this as inspiration and not a way to fall into the comparison trap. Everyone is on their own unique journey. The same way these artists are thriving, you can too! Put yourself out there and the Universe will respond.
