Today my search for an artist continued as I was finally able to post on the Deviantart forums my job posting. Turns out the issue is that if you don’t have an avatar, you can’t post a new thread on Deviantart within the first two weeks of signing up. It’s an anti-spam measure: I understand why they took it but it would have been nice if instead of getting an internal server error, I was told to use an avatar. I’ll check later to see if I got any bites. We’ll see: hopefully I have someone good interested right off the bat.Like everything, this is a process.
I’m going to take tomorrow to follow up on some of the leads and to also bump some of the social media posts. I’ll re-calibrate the search next week: if I don’t have any leads, I do have some ideas of what to do to really expand the search but I want to wait first. Anyways if you are an artist, you can contact me by going to the job search page (click the button on the left side of the screen and you’ll see the link), on DeviantArt (I’m EternalCamping), or through social media. You can also use the contact form on the front page of the website.
