We recently had the opportunity to meet with Woman’s Day magazine to talk all things Sharpie. You probably think we went to push product in their faces, but that’s not entirely true. I’m not going to lie to you – Yes, there was some product in there but truly that was not the focus. The purpose was to showcase the amazing things that people are creating with our little ol’ markers, pens and highlighters. We brought in pictures of drawings and designs by both professional and amateur artists as proof and received an incredible response! Woman’s Day eagerly asked to reach out to some of the “masterminds” behind such great work and we were more than happy to help.
On WomansDay.com, 10 Sharpie artists are showcased in Awesome Artwork Made with Sharpies, with a message to “Get inspired to draw outside the lines with these 10 marker masterpieces.” You can check out the full post HERE.
Wait a minute….Featured on Woman’s Day!? How great is that! Sure, sure…”Sharpie on Woman’s Day” is cool and all, but I’m actually referring to how awesome an opportunity this is for the artists! The fact that these are real people like you and me is what makes this so special. You see, all of the artists showcased have been featured right here on the Sharpie blog or simply have submitted their own work to the Sharpie Uncapped gallery. Who knew an opportunity like this could rise from posting a picture of something cool that you drew?
Sharpie is all about Self-Expression - Uncapping what’s inside of you and making your mark on anything and everything, in whatever way you feel. Sharpie has become what it is because of the people who use it. Do you really think that the inventor of Sharpie thought to himself, “I’m going to come up with a marker that I can use to label my underwear, design a clothing line, get Will Ferrell’s autograph, and most importantly to customize my $250,000.00 car – I don’t think so… But YOU did! You did come up with the “Who, What, Where, How, Why, & When” that is Sharpie.
So, I tip my hat to you, Sharpie Aficionado and I thank you for getting Sharpie onto Woman’sDay.com.
