Artwork for Facebook

Let’s face it, it’s time for Facebook…

Or so I’m told! I’ve set up various social media accounts, including Facebook and am learning how to link them all. So I am using that feeble excuse for being a bit lax on my news page. More positively, I have actually been very busy with commissions and am working on all sorts of lovely projects which, of course, I can’t share just yet.

Facing up to the challenge!

Ouch, that was a truly cheesy comment (I fear there may be more). So, the Facebook page, creating it and where to start? These days you can’t just say, ’ooh, that’s a nice picture, I’ll upload that for my title image.’ Oh, no! It has to look good across all manner of media, mobile phones, tablets and desktops – and I don’t know what else. So, I designed my title image and my little header image (at least I think that’s what it’s called). So, I’ve shrugged my shoulders and squared up to the realisation it’s easier to have a square template for both Facebook and Instagram, which as everyone knows is the same company. If you google Facebook templates it suggests 940 x 788 pixels, but that then doesn’t work for Instagram (if you like to share posts). My tip is to go for a template of 1200 x 1200 pixels for both. You need a square template for Instagram and Facebook photos look fine squared up.

Ooh, exciting! What shall I post?

Obviously I am posting my illustrations and with permission (or once the illustrations have appeared in print or on-screen) my most recent work. However, as I have a very cute and entertaining cat, called Louis, I am sharing photos of him too. He insisted! Vain.

The work she produces is, of course, delightful and speaks for itself; but I was also impressed with her professionalism in firstly explaining to me exactly what the process was of commissioning her, and the way she produced the work well within the time frame she had said. Throughout, she was most obliging in incorporating adjustments or re-drafts I requested, and she was always so pleasant and helpful that I felt I was dealing with a personal friend. I would have no hesitation in asking her to illustrate for me again, or in recommending her to someone else. And she's fun
