As I mentioned in my last update, over the past couple of weeks I’ve been travelling a fair bit; I was in San Jose for PantheaCon, and the following weekend Seattle for MythicWorlds. While at these two events, I spoke to a lot of people about the Tarot of Bones. While some had never heard of the project (but were really interested), a fair number not only have been watching my progress but said they really loved my work. Now that’s a gratifying experience!
One thing I did hear repeatedly was “Well, I know I don’t comment on the pictures you post, but I’m really enjoying them!” It’s good to know that folks are watching, even if you don’t even like/fave/etc. the pics and updates on Facebook, Tumblr, etc. And I do understand that when you only have a few minutes’ worth of downtime on the internet, writing out an entire comment may be a bit much to ask.
However, as an artist, and particularly one engaging with an online audience, the likes, faves, comments and shares/reblogs mean a LOT. It shows me that you are indeed paying attention to my work, and that you enjoy what I’m creating. That helps motivate me to keep working on it. And when you share or reblog my post/pics/website, you’re letting other people know that the Tarot of Bones exists. Word of mouth is one of the most important ways for a project to pick up momentum, and as April 7 is the projected start date for my IndieGoGo campaign, the more people who know about it the better!
So from here on out, can you help me by being more visible in your support? Even if you can’t write out a full comment, a quick like/fave or reblog/share will go a long way both in helping me promote the Tarot of Bones, and in giving me a nice morale boost to keep working on this ambitious endeavor! Many, many thanks 🙂
