11 Social Media Habits That Hurt Your Art Career (And How To Break Them) :: ArtCast #115
Hello, my friends and welcome to The ArtCast by The Oatley Academy!
I’m Chris Oatley – I’m an illustrator and Visual Development Artist currently working for Disney.
…and at ChrisOatley.com I help artists create dream careers in Animation, Concept Art and Illustration.
We all know that Social Media is vital for a successful art career.
These days, whenever I ask my industry colleagues where they’re finding work, the answer is almost always one of two things:
Industry connections or Social Media.
But, despite the proliferation of Social Media success stories within the Entertainment Industries, many of us are still afraid of Social Media…
…and if we’re not afraid, we’re often too familiar for our own good.
…but Social Media is just like drawing and painting.
It has a set of learnable skills and a professional approach.
I learned how to power my business with Social Media strategies that progress both the business and my personal art career.
I also helped a number of my students and my Animation industry colleagues develop their own Social Media strategies.
We’re all Artists here.
If I can figure it out, you can too.
…and today’s lesson is a great place to start!

There are three things I need you to keep in mind while listening to the lesson:
1.) I made each Bad Social Media Habit into a Character. You can find the illustrations at http://ChrisOatley.com/smh/
2.) You can also download the illustrated companion PDF and the MP3 version at the same link: http://ChrisOatley.com/smh/
3.) These Characters don’t represent real individuals. They are satirically simplistic, fictional Characters created to help us identify and externalize our own artistic struggles.
