I admit: I used to be against Snapchat. I fell under the category of ‘People Who Use This Photo App Are Narcissistic And Only Share Naked Pix Of Themselves.’
I soon learned this was false. I mean I’m sure people still do this, but for me, it’s not about that.
For me, it’s about keeping in touch with friends near and far, sharing interesting, fun, stupid parts of your day with them. And okay, maybe it’s also because I take a lot of pix and if I want to send a ridic screenshot of a TV show and draw on it, I can just send it and not have it impede on my phone’s storage. But it’s mostly about strengthening relationships, etc.
Case in point, here is my friend Brian (who has also been a guest blogger for us!). He lives in my old stomping grounds in Boston, while I live 3,000 miles away in LA.
We send Snapchats to each other of us making pizza cones or taking selfies or like passed out from being drunk. However, I like to think he is wayyyy more creative and adept at using the paint tool than I am. Here are just a few of his pieces of art that are just extraordinary.
But Brian isn’t the only one who gets creative with Snapchat. Here are a few other folks I found on the internetz who are lit’rally making a simple app a venue for their works of art. Also, comedy.
