Q: Why do you have two s’s in your name?
A: I wanted to be different. Originally my name was going to be “Abbyoriginal” because my family always says “you now have an Abby original.” I knew this wasn’t going to work because I’m not the only artist named Abby.
Actually, I have a blog post all about my logo. Read it here.
Q: What do you use on a daily basis for your artwork?
A: Easy, since much of my work is digital, I use Corel Paintshop Pro X8. For my photography, I use my Canon Rebel DSLR T6i. All work is done on my Lenovo Flex 5. (I absolutely love this laptop!) See more of my creative tools here.
Q: How did you learn to create the art that you do?
A: I am a self-taught artist. I took my first Adobe Photoshop course in my sophomore year of High School, the rest was pretty much history. I learned that I could use technology to make my art look like something. 90% of my work is digital done on various mobile apps and Corel Paintshop Pro.
Q: How did you gather such a large social media following?
A: I use all available hashtags so my work can be found. Instagram allows 30, Twitter allows a 150 character limit, Facebook allows as many as you need. Much of my following is organic, meaning all of my followers have found me. Instagram is my favorite social media platform! As of right now, I have just under 1,800 followers. I primarily use my Facebook page for sharing my artwork with my friends and family, but I do participate in multiple Facebook groups for sharing art.
Q: Can I share your work on social media?
A: Like the photo, comment on it, repost/retweet/share my artwork with credit! This is one of the best ways to show your support for my art, its free too!
Q: What is Print on Demand?
A: Print on Demand or POD is how I get my art on many products like t shirts, tech cases, home decor, stationary and more! I create the work than upload it several sites so you can purchase my art on a HUGE variety of products. These companies create the products just for you, ship them directly to you and take care of the money. I have a blog post explaining it further if you are curious.
