I would like to share some interesting art blogs I found while surfing on the internet. Maybe you already know (some of) them, maybe they're new to you. They're all completely different from one another, but to me they're all very inspiring.
If you click on the banner, you'll go to the website.
Let's begin with Tara Leaver's blog, where she writes about everything that is important for an artist. She helps you to push your own boundaries, to deal with constructive criticism, to stay motivated, to change the course of your art, to make paintings that come alive and to build a sustainable creative life that fits you perfectly. You can also read some interviews with other artists or read about Tara's own creative life.
Besides her blog, you can also find a gallery with her paintings, a shop where you can buy her work and there are some e-courses in making the art you want to make.
Doodlers Anonymous isn't a classic personal blog, but a community where artists can inspire eachother. You can participate in themed galeries to show your skills and your style and people can comment on your work,. I joined the community by making a profile myself. Altough I haven't uploaded anything yet, I'm planning to!
Lines and Colors is a blog about everything that has lines and colors: paintings, drawings, sketches, illustration, comics, cartoons, webcomics, art history, concept art, gallery art, digital art, tools and techniques, motion graphics, animation, paleo art, storyboards, matte painting, 3d graphics and so on.
Escape Into Life is just like Doodlers Anonymous not an ordinary blog written by just one person, but some kind of online magazine or community by different writers, contributers and artists.. In contrast to the previous mentioned blog Doodlers Anonymous, there's more to find than just visual arts. EIL also writes about poetry and literature, music, television and even sports.
Mindful Art Studio is the blog of Amy, an artist based in Massachusetts, where she writes about things like organizing your art studio, what art journaling is al about and she even writes about things like creative self-care. Just like Tara Leaver she wants to share all she knows about the healing power of art. She also interviews other artists about this subject, which makes this blog very interesting and inspiring.
What are your favorite art blogs? And did you already know some of these?
I am an aspiring visual artist, (screen)writer and filmmaker. On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
P.S. I am not a native English speaker, so my English is far from excellent. Sorry for that.
