It’s strange, I would say I lean more toward the introvert side, but people that know me say that me being an introvert couldn’t be farther from the truth. Apparently, I talk all the time and, at times, say too much. What the hell? I figure that after 47 years, I should do my best to embrace the outward impression of myself and own it. The title of my new website is my subtle but branded attempt to blow the doors off the idea that I’m just another introverted artist. The truth is I’m pretty insightful when I get rolling.
I’m not the most knowledgeable creative on the planet, but I do have a lot of stories to tell that I feel will help a lot of artists. This website is going to be my creative outlet moving forward. I hope that whether you’re a fan, a collector, a fellow artist, or a creative student, that you check in often to embrace the content and join in on the conversation where you feel compelled.
Here’s a preview of what’s to come in 2018 on The Insightful Artist
As long as I’ve been a professional artist/photographer, I’ve never had an online store worth a hill of beans. I’ve always sold my work in galleries and relied on articles and word-of-mouth to sell my work. Now, I finally have an amazing store that works for me and will give you an online shopping experience that every collector deserves.
I love this because rather than having to get all dressed up to go and get all networky at a gallery, my new store allows you to communicate with me and purchase my originals, limited editions, open editions, and other products right from the comfort of your own home or office.
You can look forward to one to three new paintings every week in 2018.
For Artists and Photographers
Aside from being an artist, I’ve owned an Internet marketing agency for quite a few years and have plenty of advice on how to market yourself online. I also have plenty of stories to tell in this blog and my podcast. I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to them. I know you will have plenty of instances to laugh at me for all the times I’ve made stupid career mistakes.
My podcasts will include everything from interviews with other artists/photographers to my own stories to marketing advice and techniques. If you subscribe to my blog, you’ll receive an email every time a new article pops up that includes a podcast so you don’t miss it.
For Art Students or Artists that Love to Keep Learning
Eventually I will open up a subscription part of my site so you can take my classes online, but that’s not until later in the year. Meanwhile, you can follow me on Instagram to watch one-minute snippets.
I love to teach, so most of the content I post will have a teaching element to it. Feel free to enjoy all the content on the site, and if you ever have any questions about how I created something, I’m always excited to talk shop.
To stay insightful in 2018, subscribe to this blog or follow me on Instagram. Heck, do both. What the hell.
Hey Tony! I love your new site! Look forward to seeing your new stuff.
Hey Matt! Thank you for stopping by. I’ll have two or three new pieces on the site every week plus a new subscription area sometime around June. I was anticipating it earlier but sometimes I just have to accept that there are only 24 hours in a day. Hope you’re well. We’re long overdue for dinner.
