I’ve been on Instagram for several years now and generally post pictures of new work there, and sometimes images of work in progress or random interesting things.
In an attempt to cull and curate my Instagram feed/profile I’ve decided that I’m going to go in and delete a bunch of images that don’t need to be there. Instagram isn’t an archive, nor is it a portfolio – but I think I’d like my profile to be more like a portfolio.
I did the same thing with my Facebook account not too long ago, it was easy since I wasn’t on Facebook much anymore. It’s not that I want to delete social profiles, but lately I think I just want to reduce the noise.
I’m in the midst of posting a series of drawings that I made in Albuquerque, New Mexico last week. I’m posting them about one every other day or so. I’m not sure how long they’ll stay on Instagram – I think new stuff will get posted and hang out there for at least a week. What are your thoughts?
