When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

'He was saying the same sentence over and over, ending with "tasoo-ke-te, tasoo ke-te."'

'It floats gently above suburban rooftops... inspiring lonely dogs to bark in the middle of the night.'
