Today, I was featured on another artist website by the name of Veronica N Davis. She is a Chicago based graphic design and author. It is a big deal for another graphic designer to feature me on their website. Getting noticed as a graphic designer is very important because it solidifies who you are as a designer. It also gives you confidence. I started as being an unheard of, undiscovered artist. That is how most artists start out. It makes getting your art out there in an open world nearly impossible. By being featured, it gives me more of a voice to those who have never heard of me. It helps me get more portfolio and website hits, followers, retweets, adds, clients, or even a direct message.
