Facebook is bad for artists?

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 29, 2014, 11:19 PM



I had some interesting findings after posted a poll on DA regarding my Facebook Fan Page. Many have commented that they are against Facebook and discourage me from posting art over there due to various reasons, and one of them due to the possibility of having my art being used freely by this social media site. So here are my thoughts based on my experience running a FB page for a year.

The main reason for me to set up a facebook page, is to extend my fanbase beyond DA, to the not so artist-oriented demographics. I have been using DA, and only DA, as my art HQ for the past decade and will always be. Facebook is acting as an outpost to connect with my fans in a more responsive manner due to the convenience of making posts, replies, making announcements and sharing images. Honestly, it is not my intention to choose between DA and FB, but to use both concurrently for different purposes. 

So far I have not encountered any incident of FB using my images for advertising or any other commercial activity yet. Long before I started posting art on social media sites, my artworks were posted and shared by others on FB, twitter, tumblr, instagram, pinterest..etc, and many times without the proper credit to me. Worst, they were stolen, distributed and used illegally on a daily basis, cos there many of them found my art on these platforms without knowing I am the original creator. Now at least they can tag me on facebook or instagram if they choose to.

So is facebook bad for artists to promote their art? I can't answer for all but it works for me so far, especially with their efficient mobile apps. I am using it as an extension of dA, not the replacement of it.

Sdcc-logo by Artgerm

With the love of deviantART, I will be coming over to SDCC this year again. Very likely i will be camping at the Artist Alley meeting fans, smiling, shaking hands, taking photos, selling and signing a small quantity of art prints, sketching and having fun. I will also be joining dA for a panel about The Business of Fan Art with $makepictures, $damphyr from deviantART and *BrianKesinger. Talking about art prints, if you have anything in specific that you wanna pick up at my table, feel free to let me know and I will see what I can do. :)

Looking forward to see you all there!

My Deeper Involvement with the Art Community.

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 23, 2012, 9:21 PM
New updates!


Many new & interesting things have surfaced in my life online to help me connect with the art community better, and some of these may interest you.

Firstly I've finally setup my Livestream Channel and I have regular painting demonstrations for the community. If you curious about how I create my art and my different approaches, you are more than welcome to join me. Please remember to register yourself and put my channel in your watchlist so that you will get notified via emails whenever i broadcast my live sessions.

Livestream

Secondly I have my dA chatroom called Artgermination, which dedicated to all Digital Art discussions. It has been running for a few months and it has now become a great place for many great artists to hang out and exchange art tips and knowledge. I am really involved with the chat regardless of my crazy working schedules and I am enjoying it. If you have some burning questions about digital art and the creative industry, do drop by for a chat. :)

Artgermination

Lastly I have 2 other stores outside dA selling my products such as posters, wrapped canvas, mobile phone cases, skateboards, t-shirts, and many more. Please go have a look and hope u will find something that strike your fancy. You may also request for new products based on any artwork found in my dA gallery and I will get back to you on their availability (or not). Kindly email your request to artgerm@gmail.com or drop my a dA note. :)

ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 2, 2012, 9:14 PM
Artgerm's Digtal Art Chatroom > chat.deviantart.com/chat/Artge…


Artgermination Chatroom

Many people has asked me about the rationale behind my nickname - Artgerm in many occasions. To me it is more than just a nick, it is actually my mission statement in my art journey, which I would like to see people get "infected" by my works and inspire them to create art. I've been drawing for the past 20 years, in which 16 years in digital medium. Art has already been part of my life long time ago - it is my passion, my profession and my life. Although majority of my time has been devoted to the commercial projects and my family and leave me very little time to impart my art knowledge to others outside of my studio, my mission statement has never and will never change.

As a result,  I've decided to setup a deviantArt chatroom recently called Artgermination for all digital art discussions, which I put in a good amount of my time daily to interact with other dA members, sharing with them my journey in art and conduct art streaming sessions for the members and the regulars. Many great artists hang out there regularly to inspire each other and it has become a little home for them. I remember there was once a member asked me if i found satisfaction in sharing my art knowledge with others, I told him that I found more than just satisfaction, I found PURPOSE.

Therefore I would like to invite you to my humble house of digital art within this massive community.  I am sure you will have a great time here. :)

Fusion Junction #3 - Interview

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 6, 2008, 12:58 AM
Recently i was invited to be featured in the upcoming Artbook called Fusion Junction #3,A Collection of Contemporary Character Art, and did an interview with them. Since I realized that there are many people on DA would like to know more about my life as digital artist, maybe this interview can answer some of their questions, if not all. Enjoy!


I.This series of books features artists from around the world. What influences do you think your home country has brought to your work?

Having been born and raised a Hong-Konger, my direct influences at the time were mainly HK comics, and the most foreign being Japanese Manga. That really 'worked' in the sense that my aesthetic preferences were rather focused, and it helped me develop pretty rapidly in the respect -eventually being exposed to Western/European stuff which really set me off on a different mindset. I guess you'd call my education a very fusion based one.

II.If your art was a movie what would the tagline be?

Be Inspired. Be An Inspiration.

III.What was the defining point in which you came to consider yourself an artist?

The first time I picked up a pencil and drew, and actually liking it.

IV.What was the best advice you’ve ever received?

“Don't you ever stop creating beautiful artworks please.”

V.What is your favorite time of day to work and why?

Few hours before the clock hits 7pm. Cos that's when our daily lan-gaming session starts. :)

VI.Did you have a favorite childhood toy? What was it?

It had to be Lego. The most creative toy you can offer to a kid.

VII.Do you have any advice for people just starting to do artwork?

Art fundamentals are the key, even for digital art. It gives an artist the anchor and freedom to explore various art styles. Learn it well and it will reward handsomely.

VIII.How do you feel when you finish a new piece?

The excitement is over and it's time to move on to the next piece.

IX.Do you have any rituals you go through when you are preparing to work?

Not really. I am always ready. :)

X.What is the first thing you think of when you wake up and the last thing you think of before you sleep?

I am always excited to start my working day when I wake up, and I reflect on the things that happened during the course of the day and what I can bring from it before going to sleep.

XI.How do tradition and culture play into your themes and ideas?

Being Asian, I borrow heavily from tradition and that rubs off on my creative mindset when I do engage in my work.

XII.If you were to liken yourself to a fictional character, which character would that be and why?

It has to be Nobita in Doraemon. So that I can play with all the cool gadgets in Doraemon's pocket!

XIII.Life always has many surprises in store for us, what would you say has been the biggest change in your life and how did it affect your work?

The formation of Imaginary Friends Studios, and the fact that being an employer is no small feat, juggling business as well as creative needs of both myself and my fellow colleagues. The greatest motivation to date is my belief that as a team, growing my team equates to growing myself, and that's what I look forward to on a daily basis.

XIV. What is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?

My wife, Madeline.

XV. Is there an overall theme or message that you believe either consciously or sub-consciously runs through your work?

“To never settle for anything less than what you deserve.”

XVI. If you could make one wish what would it be?

To have been able to been born in the current generation, where more and more of the youth are getting exposed and dabbling in the creative field, having the blessing of technology and information systems to share so much. It matters a lot, especially during ones... “impressionable stage”. :)

XVII. What is the strangest thing that’s ever happened to you?

The lasting fact that IFS all started with a bunch of people who met online, and now share our careers and lives side by side in a physical studio. People from all walks of lives and nationalities -it seemed like it was only yesteryear.

XVIII. Has anyone greatly influenced your art from a personal level?

No I don't recall a particular individual that did, but graphic design has a substantial influence on my approach to the creative process.

XIX.What are you passionate about in life?

I am always eager to make a difference in others' life. I enjoy imparting my skills and what knowledge I possess in art to help other young artists grow.

XX.If you could keep time in a bottle, what is the one thing you’d like to do?

I would turn back the clock and possibly relive my artist beginnings.

XXI.What is your earliest memory?

I forgot. Haha!

XXII.If you were going to write a book, what would the last sentence be?

Believe in what you are capable of and fight for it till you get there.

XXIII.Describe a day in your life.

9am – wake up
10:30 – reached IFS
10:30 to 1:00 – drawing, painting, art directing, meetings.
1:00 – lunch
1:30 to 7:00 - drawing, painting, art directing, meetings.
7:00 to 9:00 – LAN gaming sessions (team-building so to speak)
9:00 till it ends -  drawing, painting

XXIV.What is your guilty pleasure?

Gaming in the studio while telling my wife that I am working.

XXV.What animal do you most identify yourself with?

Hmm...I never wanted to be an animal.

XXVI.What is your favorite piece of art?

No I don't have one. I only like my art when they are fresh out of the oven.

XXVII.Who do you create your art for?

For God who gave me the talent to create beautiful artworks.

XXVIII.What element would you most like to improve in your artwork?

I would like to improve my story-telling skill thru comics creation.

XXIX.What is the power of art?

It brings a unique and personal interpretation to an idea that can emotionally affect an audience.

I WANT YOU!

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 20, 2007, 9:00 AM
Want to be an Imaginary Friend?

Ad


What are we looking for:
.............................................................................

1. Great digital painters! Photoshop or painter doesn’t matter!
2. If you are an amazing line artist, comic artist and/or concept artist- drop us a line, we aren’t actively looking but you might surprise us!
3. People who are already based in Singapore or Jakarta or are willing to work here.
4. People who aren’t afraid to spend insane amounts of time practically living in studio (ie forget your social life!)
5. We don’t care what qualifications you got. If you have a great portfolio, we’ll be happy to meet you.
6. People who aren’t expecting to be rich doing this. We are still a young studio (2 years old!) but we’re hoping for big things and hope everyone can grow together and get the benefits together. We aren’t the cheapest but we aren’t the best paying gig in town either.
7. MUST BE CRAZY. I mean it. The studio people are crazy about toys, games and movies. If you can work in such an atmosphere and contribute to the madness, this is a good thing. If you are a loner, hate talking to people etc, this might not work out!
8. DotA – if you play dota well, that’s extra points for sure! We regularly get challenged by other companies and studios!


But before you rush to send us stuff, here’s the lowdown:
.............................................................................

1. DO NOT send your portfolio in as attachments! We recommend you set up an online portfolio and send us the link- DA is great for this!
2. We might not be able to respond to every application- especially when we do a big call out such as this. We’re expecting quite a turnout.
3. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t hear from us- we have specific requirements at this point but at some point we might have need for someone like you- you never know!
4. Please don’t send us your story ideas! We’re sure they’re great but we aren’t in that mode currently.


Other information you should include:
.............................................................................

1. your age,
2. your country
3. your expected or current salary
4. any previous experience
5. any training
6. your online portfolio link
7. what you ultimately hope to achieve/do.
8. your contact information


Please send your application to careers@imaginaryfs.com
