It's always so exciting to know that someone likes and/or enjoys something you have created. Whoa..What?! Someone actually likes the art I have created?! It is especially gratifying if that "someone" is from the industry you are trying to break into and are still very much a "newbie" in the field.
I have been "putting myself" (my art that is) out into the world as often as I can and in as many places as I can, to gain not just exposure but hopefully some feedback. Positive feedback is a great indicator you are heading in the right direction. I am thrilled that Pattern Observer has recognized not one but three of my patterns in a recent blog post!
The patterns which were featured are ones which I had submitted as part of a month long Instagram challenge. Pattern Observer included these three designs as part of their "favorites" in a recap of the challenge. Woo Hoo!
