For me, email is definitely not dead.
I love the way social media lets me connect with different people from all over the world, everyday. But as fun and connective as social media is, I’ve used email to connect and have conversations with collectors in a much more meaningful way, one-on-one. Sometimes it’s through my website and sometimes it’s just a reply to my newsletter, but I have great conversations with fellow sports fans through email, and I’ve realized how important it is to my business.
I wanted to acknowledge the many people who helped to make my business possible: the email subscribers who are among the most enthusiastic sports fans and frequent collectors of my art. To thank them, and to welcome new subscribers into the fold, I decided to release some of my artwork for free as mobile wallpaper. I created smartphone and Apple Watch background versions of my popular Minimalist Baseball Stadiums series, and you can have them free when you subscribe to my newsletter. Actually I call it my VIP list, because as a subscriber you get access to offers and new art that the public never hears about, and because I’ve realized how important my subscribers are.
To get your free mobile wallpaper art, subscribe and you’ll receive a link to the members only download page. Then watch your inbox for promotions, new art announcements, limited edition releases, and even giveaways. I’ve been known to give away drawings from my Ballpark Princesses series, and even tickets to join me to watch a ballgame or hockey game.
And if you want to get in touch with me, just reply to any of my newsletters. I try to reply to everyone as soon as I can.
PS If you haven’t already, I would love it if you’d follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, too. I share my newest sketches, works in progress, fan pics, Ballpark Princesses, and pictures from the games I attend as a fan.
