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.

Valentine's Day

Artists have a tendency to look at the darker side of things, so romantic imagery appropriate to the holiday is not exactly abundant. But I did a quick troll through the blog and here's some random pieces that jumped out at me, ranging from the darkly cynical to the genuinely sweet.

Happy Valentine's day.
