026. Under the Influence: Social Media and Art Practice

It’s hard to navigate the grasp of the scrolling world of shared content. Does it help our work? Does it hurt it? We all came from somewhere and we know our work does, too, but with Americans spending an average of 2.5 hours on social media everyday, what kind of influence is it having on our work as artists and designers?

It’s a tough topic, but don’t worry: we have a half hour to dig into it.

We are now weekly!
Every Monday morning you can now enjoy Shockoe Artspeak! We will be alternating between our standard long-form episodes and our new series 30 Below where we take one question and talk about it for 30 minutes or less. So whether you have 30 minutes or an hour or more, there is sure to be something for every art and design lover out there. We promise we can do it!

We are on Patreon!
All of our episodes are sponsored by all the fantastic people we are pleased to call our listeners. You’ve all been a great audience and we want to give you more: more content, more types of shows, and more in-depth talks with more of your favorite artists and designers. Even $1.00 a month can make a huge difference. Check out more at
