For a lot of us, this time of year gets pretty stressful, as does the end of spring.
Whether you have a job or you're in college, these times of year are crunch times. Projects are finishing, finals are coming, the holidays are coming ... oi
So ... I propose that we all take a chance to hug an artist (excluding self hugging, that ruins all the love and fun, though I'm sure you all need a self hug too)
Essentially, what I'm thinking, is that you pick an artist you like, follow, or one who seems pretty undiscovered, and just put up a journal featuring them.
The formate would be like this:Title - Something about hugging an artist
Little blurb about the artist and what you like about them
Feature of a few or several of their pieces of work
A word or two of encouragement for the artist.
I hope to have this spread over to other art websites too, any that allow journaling or some kind of mass communication to allow featuring of another artist and their work, everyone needs a little love now and again, especially to be reminded of how much they matter, or how much their art is loved.
I'm going to go ahead and feature two artists. (I also featured two on Y! Gallery)
My artists are:
NecrophilacPrince and I have been friends for a while, and I've watched his art grow from simple MS Paint pictures to some of the beautiful work he creates today. I am so happy to see what he's created throughout the years I've known him and I hope to see him grow more.
Mavrosh has been someone I admired from a far and finally got up the courage to follow. Her 3D works are simply gorgeous and I aways feel like I could go and sit down and have actual conversations with the characters, or be able to touch them, they seem that real. She puts a lot of effort into her works and deserves every ounce of love!
In closing: You both have beautiful work, do not change a thing, I hope I am honored enough to see much more of your work in the future!
