Artist Hand-Draws Profile Pics Of Twitter Followers
A British artist's clever use of Twitter lands him more than 5,000 followers in just a few days.
British artist Greg Burney has found an interesting way of utilizing social media to market his artistry to a wider audience. Using Twitter as his driving vehicle, Burney announced that he “will hand-draw the profile picture of every new follower [he gets] for the next two weeks,” then he will tweet it to them.
The Twitter project, called #drawmyfollowers, drew a large audience of over 2,000 new followers in just four days, causing Burney to set a limit of 3,000 drawings. Burney now has over 5,000 followers. He explains:
I aim to complete this as soon as possible andâ€”once finishedâ€”hope it will provide me with some opportunities in the world of social media. Perhaps even career opportunities in social media, graphic design or branding, who knows.
