Everything so far for AndyKnillArt has been done by me or organised by me. I don’t print own pictures but chose who to use. Today I started a connection with Jurassic Creative for PR support as I don’t know who to contact best to try and get coverage in print media. I decided this was a good use of some of my covid grant money.
Catherine from Jurassic Creative has shared ideas on Instagram before and answered questions for free. She was then the expert in a webinar I watched and I decided to go with a local company who are Dorset based.
We have chatted initially and she put a proposal together for me. Today we chatted so she can put a pack together to send out to some publications that we have identified that I would like to get into. My art story covers a range of aspects from changing career in my 50s, links with my mental health struggles and how I am open to talking about his, how I market myself as an artist including the outfits and hat art. Also we can link into connections I am now trying to forge to do art with various water sport individuals and organisations.
I look forward to seeing how this develops and it’s good to get input from a professional in their field. It’s not something that I would probably have considered if the covid grant money didn’t help me but I am very conscious of pushing information about my work and technique out to a wider audience than previously.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4859-610ba21a26d76' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4859&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4859-610ba21a26d76' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4859-610ba21a26d76' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
