One hundred seventy-five days ago, I decided to start a new one-year creative challenge – To create one new image every day for my Instagram account.
I decided to take on this challenge to 1.) drive traffic to this website, and 2.) to discover my visual creative voice.
When I started, I only had twenty-two followers – Friends, family, and acquaintances. But slowly, I began to catch the attention of established artists, graphic designers, and even a few creative agencies.
To make a long-probably-boring story short, after 174 days, my follower account was 74.
But then came my first breakthrough yesterday when @Hardedger sent the following message out to their 23,300+ followers:
Support the artist @scottmoroschan
To be called an artist means a lot to me.
For most of the last twenty-plus years, I’ve worked as a successful professional perfumer creating fragrances for businesses worldwide, but to be recognized as an artist means a lot to me.
Then boom – twenty-nine new followers in one day – Bringing my total follower count up to 103!
I’m not into chasing vanity metrics, but I am excited about this mini-explosion of new followers.
Because I hope it will result in more people joining us in our creative journey to build a collaborative community of 1000+ street artists and creatives who use their skills, talent, and passion to make the world a more beautiful better place.

Until tomorrow – Take care!
