One of the best things in Snapchat are the filters! I discovered it also worked on my paintings, drawings and Mr. Bowman:
These filters are very cool, they change your environment. You're standing in between fireflies, snowflakes, falling autumn leaves or clouds, no matter where you turn your phone. Below an interaction with the cloud filter:
There are so many of stickers available which you can place, rotate and scale anywhere. I thought it'd be interesting to create portraits using all types of stickers:
The main idea is to tell a story which is visible for 24 hours. Normally I create one drawing, one quote, one photo...not really used to tell a story in a video, I saw this as a challenge and it is going to be a new learning curve. Below you can see my creative 'Max meets deer' story:
You can make yourself! I was not expecting a lot from this, but once I saw the possibilities after I created my Bitmoji I was amazed:
Below you see what I mean:
I'm on snapchat for less than three weeks, I'll post another Snap!blog in a few months, curious to see where it is gonna go.

Turns out I am in love with stickers if that is even possible...
The possibilities are endless, and every time I think I have used all the stickers...I find new ones or Snapchat updates the sticker gallery. I also combine the Snapchat lenses with the stickers to make them even more unique.
Snapchat has truly inspired me because they make it easy to communicate and be creative at the same time. It is also very good for my mood due to the interactive filters and what people create with it, makes me often laugh.
What is next?
I would like to explore the storytelling aspect more, I did do it in several videos, but I need to explore it more to take it to the next level. Also I want to find a stylus ^__^ to add drawings, I tried it with my finger but I am too much of a perfectionist, I need to control those lines.
