HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPCULART!
Hello to all my fellow Displate artists and collectors! I don't often break the fourth wall, but when I do it's usually to announce a great achievement - and this time is no exception. I would like to officially announce that the PopCulArt website is ONE YEAR OLD today!
One year ago I started the PopCulArt project as a way to better aid Displate collectors to find new artwork, and to also help out the struggling artists by promoting their artwork. The intent was to provide popular culture fans with an easy-to-navigate interface to enable easy access to their favourite Displate artwork categories with just a few clicks, as well as help give the various artists some much-needed exposure in order to generate more sales for them. After drafting a basic idea for a website, I set about creating the site you see before you. My inaugural blog post was made on the 8th of May 2017!
Over the last twelve months the PopCulArt website has grown, as has the social media following for the site. I have made many new friends via social media over the last year, and I feel that I have brought the Displate community closer together, and have helped several artists with minor issues along the way. Displate in turn has also undergone several major changes (for the better) during this time, such as offering new poster sizes and new products, but each change means that PopCulArt has had to adapt. Displate has recently made a very positive change to enable Displate merchants to better promote single artworks, and as a result I find myself once again making changes to the PopCulArt website in order to provide you guys with the best possible service that I can.
However... These changes are going to take a little time to implement, as I want to be thorough. Some areas of the PopCulArt website may not work as expected while the changes are being implemented, and some sections will disappear entirely to make way for something new and better. The site will still remain functional while I make improvements, but if a specific page looks a mess or incomplete, then that is likely because I am working on the particular section of the site. I aim to have the updates finished as soon as humanly possible, although I am simultaneously updating the PopCulArt Pinterest page as well as revising some older blog posts. I can only apologise in advance for any disruption that may be caused during this time.
