Much is made of the empowering nature of the internet. The way it can connect people globally, to share their knowledge and creativity. However, it’s worth remembering that over half the world’s population is NOT online, and they are filled with knowledge and creativity too.
One such non-citizen of the internet is my friend, artist, writer and musician, Tim Leopard. One of his most prolific artistic activities is the creation of drawings. It seems a shame that such a unique talent should be stuck denied the opportunity to share his work with the world – something that citizens of the internet take for granted.
So I automated him.
I’ve scanned (some of) Tim’s drawings, and built a bot to post one daily to Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr, opening up the work to previously unreachable audiences.
I also launched him on Patreon – if you like what he’s doing, go and support him.
