Meet John Stortz. As a kid, John experienced a lot of social anxieties and shyness. Therefore he has always enjoyed solitude. But he also enjoyed creating art! So John became an illustrator, and quite a talented one. John grew up in South Carolina and decided to move to New York to enroll to an art school. After graduating, the young artist decided to move to Wyoming. He’s lived in a cabin in a middle of nowhere for 8 months with his best friend – his dog. Obviously, it is a little uncommon for a 24 year old guy to isolate himself from society so radically.
During all of that time John had an Instagram account (https://instagram.com/johnstortz/ ) on which he posted photos of his solitary journeys until one day a girl posted his photo and said “you should follow this guy, he’s really interesting!” And in a blink of an eye, lonesome traveler John turned into a famous person with an audience that became his loyal fans. Suddenly, his Instagram account turned into the confidence boost he always needed. While the amount of likes and followers was approaching the speed of light, John made friends with people on Instagram, moved out of the cabin, settled down in California and live a happy life. His photos, his art, and his Instagram have affected his life in ways he never expected them to.
So check out this guy, he’s really interesting!
