I am pleased to announce that as part of a new community effort, Wacom has launched the “Wacom Gallery”, a place to showcase digital art and imaging and to promote creative expression and sharing.
The Wacom Gallery brings together people passionate about art, in all its forms, into a community setting that is ultimately meant to facilitate sharing and collaboration between users of Wacom’s creative products. Creators of digital content from virtually every discipline – art, design, illustration and photography can post their works of art and view the works of others.
Why a Wacom Gallery?
As a certain “type” of an artist, it is natural to associate with others who share similar interests and tastes. Personally, and professionally, you want to share your work where people interested in your style of work will find it. For most, there is no one ideal place. So, you find yourself maintaining multiple portfolios on multiple networks. For some that can 2, 3 or more places to update and maintain. That can be a challenge to say the least.
A unique feature of the Wacom Gallery is that it is powered by Behance, the leading online platform to showcase and discover creative work. Based on the Behance platform, members can host and distribute their work to other online galleries and the leading social networks, maximizing their exposure.
“I’m very excited that Wacom has launched a gallery on the Behance platform. Now tablet users (like myself) can share their work created with Wacom tablets with other like-minded creatives,” said Julieanne Kost, Principal Evangelist for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. “My tablet is as much a part of my creative process as the software and the computer that I run it on.”
Among other benefits, the Wacom Gallery is also an opportunity for artists of various disciplines to explore what their peers in other disciplines are doing. Quite specifically, our new gallery is intended to be a melting pot of “digital creation” and a place where users of Wacom products can engage with each other and share their work in a casual and fun environment.
Join the Wacom Gallery
Membership in the Wacom Gallery is absolutely FREE. If you already have an account set up with Behance, you can showcase your work in the Wacom Gallery by logging in with your Behance credentials. If you don’t already have an account with Behance, you can create one from within the Gallery area. You can even sign in using Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn.
Once logged in, you can begin uploading finished work, ready-to-show, or works in progress. Either way, you can control who sees what within your admin area. Hiding your work from public view or requesting feedback from other community members.
If you use Adobe’s Creative Cloud products (specifically Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC and Lightroom) you can use the Share on Behance command form within the File menu to share the currently open image/artwork.
The Wacom Gallery is the place to share your passion for digital art with the online community. Share a portfolio of your work, or browse other member’s creative endeavors. From fine art and photography to illustration and graphic design, Wacom encourages artists from around the globe to build a better world through creative collaboration.
