So, what exactly is Facets?
I created Facets as a way to bring attention to African-American artists and their work. I figured one of the best, most engaging ways to do this would be to compile images, stories, interviews, and other content in a virtual format - in this case, an online journal.
Sounds cool! When/how often will it be available?
I am planning on releasing quarterly issues of Facets, beginning in the fall of 2019.
Why are you waiting so long to release the first issue?
Although I have had the help and input of several wonderful people, currently Facets is a one-woman production. This is a project that I’m super passionate about, and I want it to be something that I will be proud of. In addition, I want readers to get the most they possibly can out of Facets. So, I have decided to take my time researching, interviewing, and collecting stories that I think others will enjoy. My hope is to assemble a body of work of the highest quality, both for my sake and for the sake of my readers.
So I really have to wait until next fall for all this awesome content?
No you don’t! Beginning in January, I will be sending exclusive artist interviews to everyone who supports me on Patreon. So, if you support Facets with a donation of any amount (even as little as $1/month), every month you will receive an exclusive interview with an Artist of the Month.
I would love to be a part of this project! How can I help?
Additionally, if you would like to help fund the production or marketing of Facets, you can do so through our Patreon page. Donations of as little as $1/month are gladly welcomed, and you would also be given access to exclusive content (see last question).
I’m a Black artist and I would love to be featured! How can I make that happen?
