@dunsky - AUTHOR OF THE WEEK!
This week, I am again, so amazingly excited to announce our new
AUTHOR OF THE WEEK AWARD winner!
That days was drawing sketches only with pen on paper. 10 years passed but I am still working like that. Sketches are scanned and then cleaned in Photoshop if needed. Then just multiplying sketch on top of other layers I am coloring it. (taken from @dunsky's blog post)
Apart from the amazing variety of @dunsky's artwork, I love that every illustration is created from hand-drawn sketches and then transferred to digital art. Fil Dunsky's portfolio and quality are impressive. Bravo!

Four years ago, I had an idea. I've had a LOT of ideas. Some were awesome - some... not! But I really believed THIS idea was something special. After a lot of brick walls and detours, this year I decided that I wanted to launch this idea on Steemit. Why? Because I love Steemit. I love the community here, I love the support here - and I believe that this place can be INCREDIBLE. (taken form @dreemsteem's article)

How can Steemit benefit of this ?
There are one billion active accounts on Instagram (as in June 2018), 330 million for Twitter and 1,9 billion for Youtube. The promise of an easy monetization of their posts could attract lots of people on Steemit. First, they can make money without changing their favourite app, and they get to know the power of the Steem blockchain. (taken from share2steem's fundition post)
And what is share2steem?
How does it work ?
The user must, of course, have a Steemit account. The first step is to register the social media accounts on https://share2steem.com. Registration is secured by a Steemconnect authentication, and website is secured too. Then, he continues to use his social apps as he always did, except he must use, in his posts, the tag #share2steem. The program detects the tag and automatically knows the post must also be published on Steemit. The app is actually compatible with Instagram, Twitter and Youtube. The publication on Steemit respects the social post text formatting. It can fetch single picture, multiple pictures and video posts on Instagram, but also tweets and Youtube videos.
A referral program is also available as an incentive for users to spread the word. A referrer will earn 4% of the referral’s posts for life. (taken from @share2steem's fundition post)
I think, apart from the interesting and helpful concept, this app might have a huge potential to attract more users to join STEEM and enrich our community.

Creative Crypto Magazing going physical!
Have you ever hears about the Creative Crypto Magazin?
Art - Design - Crypto!
Well, as being an artist, designer and writer, I heard about it right after joining the Steem-Community, and I loved it from the beginning. Their articles are inspiring, informative and written so so good! From the very first beginning I was a fan! But now it will get even more exciting ...
But what is the Creative Crypto Magazin?
Why are they going also physical?
How to support it?
A New Kind of Magazine
The Creative Crypto is the first magazine powered directly by a blockchain, dedicated to all things creative within the cryptocurrency world. We are a source for thoughtful and impactful stories surrounding art, design, and crypto-innovation. The topics presented here are meant to be approachable and exciting for newcomers and long-time veterans alike. (taken from www.thecreativecrypto.com)
Let's Make it Real
Introducing - Volume 1 of IMO
It's time for our Initial Magazine Offering. The ‘CryptoArt’ world is replete with vivid imagery and even more vivid stories and characters. We knew that at some point, our team would have to come up with something special, not the expected glue binding and print on paper. Rather, something more reflective of the innovations going on in the Blockchain environment. With revolutionary technologies like non-fungible tokens and unique key combinations leading to years-long easter-egg treasure hunts, the first edition of The Physical Creative Crypto Magazine could be something that truly embodied the art and culture being crafted around us.
Look out for IMO1 : Available - February 4, 2019
Please support their @fundition campain!
Some final words!
This weeks Barbarella Show will be an
Extended Special Edition
And please remember ...
Barbarella brings you closer to the people you like!
