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.

Carson Ellis

Some may recognize her art from the Decemberists' album covers. I actually noticed her art before I'd heard the band (They're really good too). There is a rich dark humor throughout her work. Check out her website at carsonellis.com
To see hundreds more wonderful sketches check out her apparently defunct blog (2007 only it seems) littlelittlegreenhouse.blogspot.com
She also posts a bunch of cool stuff to look at from her own collections and gatherings of inspirational material for her art at fastermaria.blogspot.com
