Of course mum's the word when it comes to commissioned art. Unless the client is OK with you sharing. So that leaves sharing sketches and other personal art but not too much of it. Must leave some of it in the bag.

To share or not to share could be the digital era's equivalent of to be or not to be. There is no question that you should share your art despite fears of copyright infringement. The question really is how much, what and when? Quite a few of my illustrator colleagues share some piece of art daily via Twitter or whatever. In fact that's how I discovered a lot of them via their daily art practice of creating and sharing.
So I am wondering if I should make this one of my daily art biz habits. I'm also in the throes of prepping for the NJ SCBWI June Conference - which means hyper focusing to make lots of art. Yes, currently creating lots just not sharing yet. Guess I'll be working on my "sharing" after the conference.
