I’m Savana Ogburn and THIS…is my newsletter! I’m mostly a photographer and a collage artist, and occasionally a set designer and an animator too. I love making work about queerness and pop culture, and telling stories through a super colorful, theatrical lens.
Because my work is so tactile, and often pretty labor intensive, I’m passionate about sharing behind the scenes looks at how I make my work to demystify some of the process. I believe you can make SO much with very little! And I just have so much to say!
I send out free emails once per month- these include behind the scenes of my current projects, current inspirations, and miscellaneous thoughts on the creative process. Every new edition of the free letter goes directly to your inbox and is 100% free. Subscribing gets you access to my future newsletters and my entire archive. A TREASURE TROVE if I do say so myself.
A paid subscription is a lovely way to support this newsletter and unlock access to my paid subscriber-only newsletter archive, including pieces like how I keep my work feeling fresh, and how I build my creative decks. I send out paid emails when the muse strikes, and I always take requests. It’s $5 per month and I recommend it to anyone starting out in a creative career, or who is just curious, or who just wants to support me and my work. :-)
I’ve been trying hard to find an online space to connect with people who like my work- I miss the intimacy of blogs/Tumblr and I’m hoping to foster a similar space here. Longer form content, extra BTS, and a little less polish than other sites require. It’ll be fun!
Thank you for being here!
