A lot of artists don't like when their posts are taken, screenshotted, and put on other platforms without proper credit, but with Retweeting, that person is automatically credited — you're linking to their profile. It's so much easier and much more respectful, because on Twitter it directly takes you to who made it, and [Retweets] benefit all artists.
About a year ago, there was this #WipeItDown trend, where you would wipe down a mirror and you could transition, like, maybe you were wearing pajamas and then you transition and you look really nice. I did one where I transitioned from me in real life to me as an animation winking. It got a lot of attention, and I started having interactions with a bunch of artists that I look up to, that I've been following for years. Little interactions I have with them on Twitter just really make my day.
CJ Reynaldo, a deaf Filipino artist, is one of my favorite art accounts on Twitter. He surrounds his artwork with Filipino culture and makes little mini comics, and also just uses amazing colors. He makes art around Filipino mythology and goddesses, and it's really interesting to learn about my culture through art, because I live in a predominantly white family. [CJ] communicates a lot of things that I’ve never known about my culture. I also like Tessa Dabney. She's a comic artist and I love the way that she uses colors, her artwork is very fluid.
