Yes you should definitely start one, next question....
I do! I'm a children's book author-illustrator who recently started a substack newsletter called AT THE KIDS TABLE. It's a weekly creative feast that includes book bites (book recs), creative nuggets (thoughts on writing and illustrating), and brownie points (fun activities and illustration stuff).
Love your newsletter, Adam! And thanks for the opportunity to share.
I do! A fellow illustrator! Planning to post weekly. 👍 I found yours through your IG posts.
Ooh! I have one! I've loved getting back into writing, especially about what I love: Art, history, politics, and Internet nonsense.
Also, I've really enjoyed your newsletter, Adam!
I do - I opened to read your newsletters! But you have inspired me to maybe do one myself... maybe not daily like yourself but weekly. Read your last marketing post and made me think - maybe it could be another way to get noticed by clients and make other illustrate friends! Do you think it's successful? Worth a go?
I do! It's about our journeys of wellness and illness, and discoveries along the way. Thanks for setting up this thread, Adam!
This is fabulous, can't wait to check out all these newsletters! Thanks for starting this! Also, I do! I have a weekly newsletter that is playful news from my studio. Basically some fun drawing prompts and things that inspire me.
Ps: for a week’s worth of essay prompts, this is great: https://summerbrennan.substack.com/p/essay-camp-starts-monday-06f?r=p60pf&utm_medium=ios
