I woke up to this mention of Laurelines on the great website Empty Easel! [at the request of Dan, the author of the website, I'm just including the headline from the original article and a few snippets from it. Please click on Empty Easel above for the full piece!]
8 Must-read Art Blogs for 2008 - a Few of
the Best Art Blogs Online
Internet junkie that I am, I tend to read a lot of art blogs. I’ve found many good art blogs and some great art blogs—but for this particular list, I wanted to pick the cream of the crop: the very best art blogs online.
My criteria? I chose blogs that are focused on art, illustration, or design that consistently feature helpful and well-written articles, are frequently updated, and have the staying power to last all the way through 2008. [cont'd in original article]
Making a Mark - Katherine Tyrrell’s art blog continues to be one of the best online sources I’ve found for pastel, pencil, and pen and ink information, as well as the occasional review of UK art shows and historical artists. [cont'd]
Lines and Colors - I’m pretty sure there’s more art information on Lines and Colors than any one person could ever read... [cont'd]
William Wray - William Wray is a southern California comic book artist turned painter whose plein air paintings and sketches (and occasional stories behind the artwork) are always fascinating. [cont'd]
Up all Night Again - This elegantly designed blog is authored by Kirsty Hall, an artist and art curator from the UK. [cont'd ]
Laurelines - Laurelines is the epitome of a great sketchblog—constantly updated with lots of pen and ink, pencil, and watercolor sketches from everyday life. There are also several themed projects like 101 Faces and travel sketches, and I’m sure there are plenty more coming in 2008.
For all eight names, check out Empty Easel. Thanks to Dan for the very welcomed vote of confidence!
Now back to work!
