Every once in awhile when we get our act together here at Skinny Artist , we have the pleasure of introducing you to a new featured artist. We have them sit down and talk to us for a few minutes about their experiences working as a creative professional. We talk about their work, some of the biggest challenges they have faced, lessons they have learned along the way, as well as explore some of the tools they are currently using to market their work. I think this is not only a great way to meet some incredible artists, but also to learn some valuable information along the way.
Some of you may already know our latest Featured Artist: Trevor Jones from Twitter, Facebook, or from reading his insightful blog. If you know Trevor, you know that he’s always hard at work, which is why I was excited to have the opportunity to sit down with Trevor and talk to him about his art, his latest projects, and how a Canadian like himself ended up living and teaching art in Scotland.
We talk a little bit about social media and which celebrities Trevor is currently stalking on Twitter. He talks about why he thinks that it’s so important to get involved in the arts community, whether it’s simply on a local level or in an international charity art exhibition. Trevor talks about how he had to overcome his fears in order to share his art with others inside the classroom. He shares with us his three simple rules for attracting good karma and why an artist can’t be afraid to fail. He also explains why he has a soft-spot for restoring the Scottish Caledonian forest and the moment he realized that he was going to need some help in order to make that happen.
