I think just practice — and I’m saying this to myself, too, because I don’t practice enough — but practice what you’re doing so you’re really, really good at it. And then don’t worry too much if people are noticing or not because if you’re really good people will notice.
For online stuff I think it’s good to comment on pages of artists you like and keep up with the current art trends. In Oklahoma we don’t see that much. We’re behind the trends. There’s a couple of really good magazines that are really inspirational to keep up with.
