Drawing giveaway!

You heard right. I’m planning on giving away a drawing each month to one lucky newsletter subscriber… and it could be you! The only requirement is that you’ve signed up to receive my newsletter. It’s free to sign up and you can unsubscribe at any time. I’m thinking the giveaway will be around the middle of each month, so you still have time to subscribe for the July drawing.

I’m thinking, since this is the first month of trying it out, I’ll pick a random subscriber around the middle of the month. Subscribe now and I’ll have more contest details sent out via newsletter soon.

the lucky subscriber might win this drawing…or something else, who knows

site update

so I made some changes to the website, and will be firing up the newsletter soon.

One thing I realized as I dropped bundles of images into galleries here was that they can show the filename and description…over the years my filenames and descriptions have changed. I’ll go in and clean those up little by little, most likely to include the title and date, and possibly media and dimensions (if I get really ambitions). Let me know what you think about the changes.

have a great day,


connecting the dots

I realize I’ve been a bit quiet here lately. It seems to take a lot of work to create art and promote it at the same time. I’ve been working in my sketchbook the past couple weeks, experimenting and exploring. There’s a lot of freedom and no deadlines. johnotterart008.jpg

I’ve been posting these new sketches and drawings to Instagram, you can find my feed here: https://www.instagram.com/johnotterart/

This weekend I really want to come up with a schedule for my newsletter, which is currently posted very infrequently, maybe once a month. You can sign up for my newsletter here: John Otter Art Newsletter – free to sign up, no spam & you can unsubscribe anytime.

And if you haven’t liked my Facebook page you can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/JohnOtterArtist/

I look forward to sharing my process, progress and ideas a bit more frequently, hope you’ll come along for the ride. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments below.

Subscribe to my artist newsletter

I’ll admit, I haven’t been that good at releasing newsletters. I’ve been posting mostly to my Instagram account, and sometimes Facebook, but that’s about to change.

From now on subscribers to my newsletter will get exclusive deals on original art, informative links, a peek into my process and other tidbits…I’m hoping for at least once a month.

Sign up now to stay informed, you can unsubscribe at any time.
