Do You Want a Free Limited Edition Print of My Work?

February 24, 2012 4 Comments

I've been organizing my website a lot lately. This has lead me a particular revelation -- My art website is not the primary place in which I display my art... That's sad considering my name is the domain name. So, I have a plan to make it the primary place:

I'm Going to Give Away Free Limited Edition Prints

It's an attempt to create more of  a community on my website. You see, I notice that I talk a lot on Twitter and Facebook about my art, but never on my own site, which seems a little counterproductive. So, I'm going to start giving the first of a limited edition print away for people who actually comment on my website instead of on social media websites. I'm not certain how I'll do it just yet.

Maybe I'll give it away to the first person to comment (a real comment) -- but increasingly, I'm thinking about just picking someone at random who posted a comment on the first day that the new post was created. If no one posts I get to keep it for myself :)

What do you think? Is it a good way to help develop a community on my website? Do you have any suggestions for how to do it better?

No no, like I said, I haven’t decided yet how it’s going to go. there isn’t a print associated with this post. I’ll make sure to let everyone know which posts to comment on to get free prints.

I think I’ll just select people at random of all who posts instead of first come first serve.

Mr. Weinmann,
Saw your twitter post and decided to take a little time aside to check out your site myself. I’m really liking your work with graphite im guessing? I like your character styles and think you should keep exploring them fully. Also, i’m kind of the same way with social networking and have learned it’s an amazing tool. I’d say just keep referencing people off of both your facebook and twitter accounts and your site will continue to gain recognition. Keep up the good work and i’m interested to see what you create in the future. cheers.

Hey Adam, thanks a lot. yeah the pencil stuff is generally graphite and charcoal.

We’ll see where this little endeavor takes us. Thanks for commenting.

I liked that Idea and who is Adam why does he get because he was first. How about we foot race?

I think its cool if you socialize your website on twitter and fb but share your art and observations about art and everything that is you to get the people who visit your site to start a dialogue
