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 and—once finished—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.
