Is it really possible to sell art in 140 characters or less? Absolutely! Last year, every piece of art I bought was from a link I followed in Twitter.

In tonight's show, I'll look at what does and doesn't work when using twitter to sell your artwork. How do you reach new buyers without annoying your existing base? How do you use twitter to keep your audience engaged? Using case studies of artists who have been successful with selling their work on twitter, I've identified over ten strategies that work best.

This show was pre-recorded, so there were fewer call-ins but I was joined by Jennifer Mathis (@JenXer) who shares some of the ideas that have worked for her.

Statement + Bio | Curriculum Vitae | Bibliography

I'm best known as an artist and designer. Relaxing makes me tense, so I tend to put in a lot of hours on diverse projects.

On the way to a successful art career I've been a poet and writer, a tech geek, a print and web designer, illustrator, industrial designer, musician, teacher, actor, set designer and even a paid guru once.

It's all the same thing in the end— I wake up most days thinking about how I want to change, fix or improve some aspect of the world. And after a couple cups of coffee I get started on it.

My specialty is impossibility remediation: if it can't be done, I'm on it.
