about TJC

There is one moment, in the first few seconds, when you look at a piece of art and know that you love it. It’s the moment when, if you’re an artist yourself, you look at it and feel a rush of uplifting inspiration… and total soul-crushing jealousy all at the same time. It’s when you walk away thinking, “Damn, I wish I thought of that.” ~ The Jealous Curator, est. 2009

The Jealous Curator launched in February 2009, as a place for me to show artwork that “made me jealous”… in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way. I was literally getting stopped in my tracks every time I saw work that I loved. It was awful. But now, almost five years later, that “jealousy” has turned magically, wonderfully, and thankfully into inspiration… but it’s too late to change my logo ; ). In all seriousness though, I’ve realized that jealousy can actually be turned completely on it’s head, and used as fuel to get back into the studio. It can only stop you if you let it. That’s when the magic transformation from jealousy to inspiration starts to happen… thank goodness.

As I move forward with the site, I’ve realized that what I’m most interested in is, of course gorgeous contemporary art, but I’m also absolutely fascinated with the self-doubt part – the insecurities, inner-critics, creative blocks, and of course the jealousy that all of us have to deal with at some point. This lead to GIRL CRUSH, a series of workshops that I launched in 2012, all across the USA. It was also the idea behind my very first book {what?!}, titled CREATIVE BLOCK, that is being released by Chronicle Books in early 2014.

Bio {and other bits}:

I have a BFA in Visual Arts {painting, printmaking, and art history}, and a post-grad in Design. I’ve worked as a designer and Creative Director for 14 years, but have never stopped loving and creating art. After decades of looking at beautiful contemporary art and thinking “Damn, I wish I thought of that”, I decided to say it out loud, and The Jealous Curator was born. I write daily posts showcasing artwork from around the world, and I’m currently writing two books that will be published by Chronicle Books in 2014. I am also thrilled to have had the opportunity to write magazine articles for Frankie, and Anthology. I have curated shows in Washington DC, Vancouver Canada, Chattanooga TN, with an upcoming project at LA’s Fig House. I’ve also had the pleasure of speaking at Alt Summit for the past three years, and recently gave a guest lecture at the University of Tennessee. I am a contributor to sfgirlbybay and Style by Emily Henderson, and have written posts for West Elm, Etsy, Design Crush, Yellowtrace, Move Lifestyle, eBay, Escape Into Life, EcoFabulous, and several others.

    Hi,

    I came across your blog last week. There is some great stuff on there. I thought I would pass a link on to my website. I am not so big on self promotion but I figured my work might fit with your style. Maybe not.

    The Crinoline Flowers are a pretty popular series.

    Thanks,

    Daryl

    I am jealous of your blog and of your wonderful eye for art! I hope you don’t mind if I post about you on my blog about art and a lot of other stuff.

    Your blog has become a huge source of inspiration because you seem to find lots of work that makes me jealous too. :)

    I’m a photographer and I make altered books. I’ve had two bodies of work on the go for the last year.

  28. Oren /// 11.21.2010 /// 5:49am

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I like your blog in a lot of ways, I really do. You have impeccable taste and your writing is erudite and charming, for the most part. And I understand the “jealous” thing for the hook that it is. But I have to be up-front with you, this is a break-up letter. I won’t be reading your blog anymore. It’s coming off my RSS feed. You see, jealousy is such a negative feeling. It’s such a heavily charged word, pregnant with both failure and an inability to come to terms with one’s own shortcomings. It’s also filled with the potentially evil desire to see the subjects of one’s envy fail as well. It’s a form of evil eye, really, and I’m disturbed by it. I understand that maybe you’re not literally jealous. But the word repeated over and over has become more burdensome every day. So this is goodbye. Thank you for all the colorful and well designed memories. I wish this could have ended differently between us.

    –Oren

  29. the jealous curator /// 11.21.2010 /// 8:28am

    Dear Oren,
    Well, I’m sorry to hear that. Clearly the jealousy that you’re talking about is a very different one than I’m referring to. I once heard someone say that if you keep your jealousy of things/people a secret it can become a toxic poison that eats you alive (which i totally agree with), but the moment you say it out loud it becomes admiration… so that’s why I’m saying it out loud. And honestly, this way of viewing it as been amazing for my own art work. Instead of seeing new work and wishing that my work looked like that, I can truly appreciate it, share it with all of you, and move forward with my own work knowing that every piece of art is different and “jealousy-worthy” to someone.
    Thanks for reading as long as you did. Sorry if the word is too much for you.
    The Jealous Curator
    ps. The jealousy thing isn’t an intended “hook”… it was really how I felt before I started the blog. My own work was being totally crippled and I was tired of it. I wanted to turn the jealousy on it’s head, and somehow make it work for me in a positive way… and now it does. Just wanted you, and anyone else that happens to be reading this, to know.

  30. Joey /// 11.24.2010 /// 11:09pm

    Great curating. I’m jealous of all the artists that have graced the pages of your blog. I’m bookmarking you and would be delighted if you took a moment to peruse my work for consideration. http://www.joeybates.com or http://www.flickr.com/photos/greenbeatle/

  35. Marija /// 12.28.2010 /// 11:52am

    I love the fact that you are not an elitist type of curator and that fine art, design and crafts all come together here with the lines between them blurred. You see only art.

  36. the jealous curator /// 12.28.2010 /// 7:38pm

  41. Jessica /// 02.08.2011 /// 5:40am

    I completely agree with your 2011 note on jealousy. As an artist, your blog is very cathartic for me because I often look at other people’s work and feel inadequate about my own. But just voicing it really does transform my jealousy into admiration, not to mention inspiration and validation. Thank you for what you do here :)

  42. the jealous curator /// 02.08.2011 /// 8:19am

    thanks so much jessica… i really appreciate hearing that! i would never want anyone to come away from this place feeling anything but inspired.

    I think your blog is very interesting. It definitely gives things a more personal feeling to each post you do. Being “jealous”. Haha…I’m always telling myself “I wish I thought of that” when I see art that moves me.

    Anyway, I figured I’d give your blog a shot as well. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks!

    Hi, from West Wales U.K.
    I enjoyed your piece on Marla after just viewing ‘my kid could do that’ for the first time, It is a shame that they never got to the truth of the matter but either way, as long as the child’s right to be a child isn’t invaded again, then who really gives a damn.
    Thanks for an entertaining piece, and I hope you have a little time to view my meagre efforts.

    Many Thanks

    I will take my chances to submit a project I ‘ve just uploaded that I call ‘Superheroes’. It tries to establish a humorous conversation between ‘Superheroes’ of modern art & design, with Pop Superheroes like Superman and Lady Gaga. Would be delighted if you wanted to publish it: http://www.behance.net/gallery/SUPERHEROES/1278865

    jealous?
    Radiant Fields, featuring work by Benjamin Edmiston (Brooklyn), Edward Max Fendley (DC) Steven Riddle (Baltimore). Recently opened at NUDASAHNK in Baltimore, May 28th the show runs until June 25th. We all had a great time installing the exhibition and hanging out at the opining enjoying some ice cold Natty Boh. Please check out the opining and Installation photos over at the NUDASANK’S blog. Any support you have to offer would be much appreciated.

    Thank,

    Joining in late… I just saw this post now. The title of your blog, and the subheading, are the very reason I was drawn to it (as are many of my artist friends). I know that feeling so well: I love this– and I hate it that I didn’t think of it myself! Just want to say that I have that very feeling about your blog, and I give the url to my painting students. Yours is the art blog I check in with most frequently. Yes, I’m jealous– and proud of it!

  85. the jealous curator /// 06.06.2011 /// 10:35pm

    Hi! I absolutely love your site. I love it when I find new blogs that I can bookmark and check when I need inspiration (which is daily). It is awesome that you find art that you love, and are jealous of, and then share it with the world. I thought I would pass on my link in case you are interested.

    Thanks!
    Jenny

    Join me in being extra jealous of the art by angela singer http://www.angelasinger.com/ (im also jealous of the meaning behind) i try to make something similar but it just looks like it but not it (sobs)

  92. the jealous curator /// 07.13.2011 /// 2:30pm

    love! thanks for the link debbie!

    Hi TJC,

    I hope you don’t mind, but I posted about you in my blog http://sb-a.blogspot.com/ :)
    I just can’t get over how exactly you described that jealousy feeling of other people’s art/design – basing a blog on jealousy is a very interesting idea and I think it’s really working for you :)
    All the best,

    thank you greg!

  98. Rob /// 08.13.2011 /// 5:18pm

    Thanks to you I’ve discovered the ceramic work of Michelle Summers which I now completely am inspired by (I skipped jealousy and went straight to the top!).

    It’s weird, being an artist and having to deal with all the ups and downs of personal creativity and then see so much great art (thank you internet!) and somehow keep leaping and swimming upstream (happily!). I wouldn’t have it any other way except with periodic retreats, hermitages and down time in the studio with no jealous curators serving up tasty dishes! ;-)

  99. Lauri /// 08.18.2011 /// 4:44pm

    Wow! I’m jealous of you. I want to be you.
    Glad to have discovered your site. Thanks.

  100. the jealous curator /// 08.18.2011 /// 11:32pm

    wow right back! thanks so much lauri : )

  101. harem6 /// 08.27.2011 /// 3:40am

    We’ve just discovered your blog… Wow ! It’s such a unique space filled with all sort of ” worlds ” that definitely make us think about that word ( jealous ) exactly the same way you do. It doesn’t make us fall and think about how small we are, but it gives us wings and makes us want to make more, knowing that it’s possible. Looking at all these artists, so different from one another, creates a powerful feeling that we’d never want to lose.
    Great job ! We’ll come back here.

  102. the jealous curator /// 08.27.2011 /// 6:38am

    thank you… really, thank you! i’m so glad you understand the “jealous” i’m talking about : )

  103. kim /// 08.31.2011 /// 10:06am

    i don’t know what’s taken me so long to get my butt over here– i adore your guest posts on sfgirlbybay.
    finally clicked through today- jeeesh i’ve been missing out! why i am i perpetually late to the party??
    thanks for the awesome.

    hey!

    i’m watching the reasons of your jealousy!

    welldone!

  107. Carmen /// 09.18.2011 /// 12:34pm

    So I just this very moment experienced the very feeling of total inspiration and and “crushing jealousy,” when I came across Takashi Iwasaki. Specifically the embroidery work.
    http://www.takashiiwasaki.info/index.html
    When I found this artist, I blurted out to my husband, “god I can only dream of being this good! It’s just mind boggling.”
    He said, “Well, I’m not the best at my job…”
    I said,”Well, I think it’s healthy[to be jealous].”
    Then I read your bit about the toxicity of jealousy. I couldn’t agree more that jealousy is dealt with best by letting it free and saying it out loud. That’s what being an artist is. At, least to me. Being true about all of your emotions, and letting them free. Even if it isn’t the most appealing thing to do. I thinking admitting jealousy is rather brave.
    I look at the work of Takashi Iwasaki, it makes my brain go nuts. This kind of jealousy makes me dream bigger than I could ever dream on my own. I love your blog for that very reason. I stop by everyday. It feeds me so much inspiration. Well, I could ramble on forever about how much this blog means to me…
    Really, I just want to say thank you for being jealous!

  108. the jealous curator /// 09.18.2011 /// 2:59pm

    wow carmen! thank you so much for your very kind words about the blog, and for so openly sharing your reaction to takashi’s work… funny enough i actually have a post about his work in my drafts folder ready to roll later this week! great minds think alike ; )

  109. the jealous curator /// 09.18.2011 /// 3:01pm

    ps. carmen… love your knit chain necklace! gorgeous work!!!

  110. tronganhgallery /// 09.19.2011 /// 12:16am

    we would like to promotion our artists to you!
    they are so young and love paint so much… Can you have a look at this site : tronganhgallery.webs.com / and tell me how about you feeling?
    thanks and best regards,
    tronganhartist

  111. the jealous curator /// 09.19.2011 /// 6:45am

    thanks! i’ll go check it out : )

  112. Carmen /// 09.19.2011 /// 8:38am

    I feel like such a sap! I got a little carried away with my post…*blush*
    I’m really excited to see the post for Takashi! I stopped by here to see if you had posted anything in the past, and got totally carried away. :)

    Carmen

    p.s. I’m so flattered that you like my necklace. Maybe I should make more…

  113. the jealous curator /// 09.19.2011 /// 10:01pm

    yes! you should!!

  114. Niyati /// 09.20.2011 /// 8:26pm

    Hi TJC!

    Your blog is sooooo amazing. And it is exactly how I feel too. It makes me almost sorry I work with textiles (for now)… there is so much to explore… each artist opens doors of perception.. and not only am I jealous too, I wish I could walk those ways and try their mediums. I came back to making textile art after a long hiatus, and seeing your blog and the amazing things that people create makes me certain I’m doing the right thing.

    Also, I know you must be super busy, but could you take a look at my ‘art for wear’ label? It’s called Origei. We (my mom and I) make unusual stockings and scarves. I’m new at selling online, and would really appreciate feedback from you. I trust your judgement so!

    Thanks a lot,
    Niyati

  115. John Westmark /// 09.21.2011 /// 10:22am

    thanks so much john!

  117. kmaniko /// 10.12.2011 /// 12:35pm

    Hey!
    Just came across your blog while doing a project for art class, and found it so interesting! I love that you take a negative emotion and turn it into admiration and positive advertising. It’s just great, because lots people (women especially) are plagued by jealousy in their everyday lives, with the media, and men telling us how to be/what to look like. I just wanted to share an artist with you: http://autumnskyemorrison.com/
    She’s really great, and thought you might appreciate her work.
    Thanks for blogging (:
    peace and love.

  118. the jealous curator /// 10.12.2011 /// 1:17pm

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate all of your sweet words : )
    Thanks for the link… so funny, my brother actually just sent me her portfolio a few weeks ago! Weird.

  119. Sheila /// 10.20.2011 /// 8:54pm

    I just stumbled upon a new artist and popped over to see if you’d featured her yet…and you haven’t! So check out http://www.kristiinalahde.com. What this woman does with found paper blows my mind. I have such a soft spot for art which uses found materials…I guess that’s why I’m drawn to quilting. :)

    Also, I just have to say…I’m jealous of The Jealous Curator. ;) I stop by every day for a healthy dose of admiration and inspiration. Thanks so much for such a wonderful blog!

  120. the jealous curator /// 10.20.2011 /// 9:40pm

    wow! amazing work… thank you sheila!!! (and thank you for such lovely words about my blog… you made my day!)

  121. Ryan Phillips /// 10.28.2011 /// 9:02am

    Hi Danielle, just read about you in my favorite mag Sunset. Great blog, very inspiring indeed! Just thought I would you give you one more “jealousy” to share with your friends ;-) http://www.purephoto.com

    Cheers

    -Ryan

  122. art chick /// 10.28.2011 /// 1:35pm

    I stumbledd on your site for the very first time and I can totally relate to what you mean!! Yes, so many artworks have caught my breath away and “wished” I could have or should have thought of that before.

    It’s not the true green monster jealousy, rather it’s more of an admiration…I love it when works of art makes my heart stop beating for a split second.

    Keep up the great work. Don’t pay any attention to “negative attitudes.” Life is too precious to deal with negativity.

    How exciting to find your website. I saw your article in the November issue of “Sunset” magazine. My husband finally was able to pursue his dream after he retired from Disneyland about 5 years ago. We’ve run out of walls and now have an off-site storage to store all his originals (over 100). Have no idea how to reach art lovers and buyers. Hopefully, you’ll love his art as much as I do!

    Thank you for sharing your tastes, your website is the best place on the internet. I totally relate to your feelings. In art, jalousy is not a negative emotion, it’s only hidden admiration.

    Here’s a link I’d like to share with you : http://www.awful-drawings.com . It’s full of hilarious and insightful illustrations.

    Take care and keep up the good work.

    I’ve learnt so much about the Arts from your blog than trying to catch up with magazines, newspapers and spreading the word. I understand ‘the jealous’ part completely.

  177. the jealous curator /// 04.03.2012 /// 8:36am

    thanks so much luna… what a lovely comment to start my day with! xo

  178. Louise /// 04.04.2012 /// 5:34pm

    I absolutely love your blog. I find the use of the word jealous interesting. English has always been a language that morphs and evolves and at the same time I admit to feeling a little differently about your choice of words. It is a fabulous choice in that it sparks interest and is the marketer’s prerogative to do so, however, I do feel that one of the strengths of the English language is that it offers such a rich choice of words to use to convey our meaning with stark clarity such that it seems a shame to try to say otherwise. Perhaps far better to understand that the juxtaposition of meaning is meant to startle and I am certainly thrilled to see your result.

    Ps. I looked up the definition again myself prior to writing this entry to confirm current usage, and when I look up the definition in the dictionary I don’t see your positive definition. I do see that the definition offered is a feeling of “resentment” or even ” anger” . Admiration is just that admiration.

  179. the jealous curator /// 04.04.2012 /// 6:20pm

    true enough louise… but when i started ‘the jealous curator’ back in 2009 i did have feelings of resentment and anger, so the name was pretty bang on. as the years have passed i’ve learned a life-changing lesson about morphing that jealousy into admiration (which feels amazing!)… but it’s a little late to change the name ; )

    hi there,
    I came across your blog when one of my facebook friend posted your link on her wall, and I’m hooked eversince!
    I’m an ex-advertising person as well, I’m a designer at heart and I do freelance now, logos, illustration and I paint and exhibit from time to time..
    I can say that I’m jealous (in a good way) of all your posts, you have a great taste in art. and I was wondering if you’d like to have a look at my work, and maybe feature me in your blog!
    here is the thing, I’d like to feature the sketches, they are my new babies that I’m so proud of them,
    “the sunny girls”
    this idea started as a doodle I did when I was on the phone with someone..a girl wearing big shades and lots of lines and flowers coming out of her head..
    then we traveled to Greece for summer and on one of the Greek islands I found lots of stones, and wherever I go I hear about artists who come here for summer, then when they see these lovely stones they draw on them, then they leave them behind when they travel back home..
    I did the same, I drew on the stones then I left some with friends we met there, and I brought some back home, but also, when I came back home, I have developed this girl, into drawings with pencil & ink on A3 papers, and I can see my self doing so much more on the concept..
    please view the artworks in this link
    http://www.dripbook.com/lama/book/the-sunny-girls-series/#933256
    :)
    what do you think?
    and if you want you can “like” my page in FB “lama khatib daniel’s art page”
    thanx
    cheerz
    :)

  189. the jealous curator /// 05.06.2012 /// 8:30am

    hi lama – thank you so much for sending me your work! what a great idea (leaving drawings on stones). you’re sunny girls are lovely, but they’re not exactly my taste… but lovely none-the-less! have you reached out to any illustration blogs? they look very illustrative to me. good luck with your work!! : )

  192. Yulia /// 05.09.2012 /// 7:40am

    hi jealous curator !

    I’ve stumbled upon your blog – and i love it! I know how you feel – I’m an artist myself (digital illustration, graphic design & of course painting), when i see a nice piece of art I usually think “I can do better than that” or “this doodle costs how much???!!” – but you know, it’s the idea that counts, and whoever thought of it first – wins.

    oh, and I loove Andy Warhol :)

    You might find some interesting art/ideas from my pinterest board http://pinterest.com/giraffesnstuff/art/

    Thank you,

  194. Lisa Zador /// 05.14.2012 /// 2:00pm

    I think the word jealous is absolutely perfect and not negative in the least. I guess not everyone has a sense of humor.

  195. Saylor /// 05.21.2012 /// 4:39pm

    I am jealous of the Jealous Curator! (am also a big Shaun Kardinal fan…)

  200. Michael /// 06.01.2012 /// 10:09am

    Hello Curator,

    I admire the aesthetic quality of your blog… you have a innate ability to find interesting and completing work. I have discovered and shared many new artists with friends, colleagues, and students from visiting your blog. Thanks.

  201. the jealous curator /// 06.01.2012 /// 10:31am

    thank you so much michael! : )

  202. Diane /// 06.05.2012 /// 9:46pm

    Hi there! I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and recently I just got a job at an art gallery-cum-retail space, and I was just wondering if you would be ‘jealous’ of the artist’s work :)

    http://www.kumarinahappan.com/gallery.php

  203. the jealous curator /// 06.06.2012 /// 6:23am

    congratulations diane! and thanks for the link… i’ll go have a look : )

  204. Tom /// 06.06.2012 /// 6:30am

    I’m hooked on Jealous.

    I came across your blog a month ago, and love pretty much everything you post! You’ve got a great thing going here. Not only are the works you display inspirational, but YOU are inspiring, and I really dig that.
    I’m a design professional myself with a love for painting & collage. I’ve got works you might like, but this is not a plug for myself; I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your site.
    Gotta admit, there is one thing I am jealous of: your Girl Crush Tea Parties. What? No Guy Crush Tea Parties? (Ok, that does sound weird.) But seriously, is there any chance males can join the club? If no, you won’t hurt my feelings. I understand the bond and connections girls share when they gather and converse. I just wish you offered a coed event too. I mean, who doesn’t like cupcakes?

  205. the jealous curator /// 06.06.2012 /// 6:39am

    ha! that’s a really good idea tom! it kinda just morphed into “girl” crush because so many of my readers are women… they were the ones commenting when I first brought this up way back when. BUT you’re right, the boys are allowed to come too! so far it’s all women that have signed up, and i’ve been a bit curious to see what the dynamic would be if there were a few guys in the mix. everything is full for 2012, but i’ll make a point of doing a few “co-ed” tea parties in 2013 … deal? ; )

  206. dsinla /// 06.08.2012 /// 3:06pm

    love your site and thought you might like to share this with your readers:
    I just read this :
    Metro Art is announcing new opportunities for artists as part of Phase 2 of the Metro Expo Line.(in Los Angeles)

  207. Fiona /// 06.13.2012 /// 4:51am

    Just stumbled upon your blog. It’s awesome. And I thought that jealousy was just me, so relieving to see so many people living in such jealous admiration;-) I not only suffer from a similar pang of (jealous) feeling when I see art works, but the problem where I’ll have an idea, and think about it for so long and so deep that the work is often finished before I even begin… I might just live vicariously through others’ work! Lol.

  208. the jealous curator /// 06.13.2012 /// 6:32am

    i have that same problem! i ended up forcing myself to do a ‘painting per week’ project for 12 weeks – it really helped! i got a bunch of little 4″ x 4″ canvases and before the week was out, a painting (or collage, or drawing) had to be finished. try it! (and let me know how it goes!)

  209. Fiona /// 06.16.2012 /// 1:56am

    That’s a great idea! I’ll give it a go and get back to you! (stressed out-the pressure is on! Lol;-)

  210. the jealous curator /// 06.16.2012 /// 7:24am

    ha! go for it! and if they’re bad that’s ok… lots of mine were bad, but a couple of them were surprisingly good. they were great idea starters for bigger pieces that i really like. go for it… embrace the suckage! ; )

  211. Alisha Erin /// 06.16.2012 /// 7:31pm

    I’m hoping to go to grad school soon and coming to your blog always gives me that little bit of extra fuel I need to hit the studio after those long days at work. I totallyyyy understand that mix of deep respect, surprise, and jealousy It can be so inspiring, though! Luckily, most of the people I’m “jealous” of are my best buddies and it’s just another way they motivate me to be better.

  212. the jealous curator /// 06.16.2012 /// 7:52pm

    that’s the best kind of jealousy… the kind that motivates you, and gets you excited to be in the studio! good luck with grad school : )

  213. jim bachor /// 06.26.2012 /// 6:39pm

    wow – if i can swear – holy fuck, you have quite an eye – beautiful stuff, over and over again. i’m jealous and a bit depressed. keep up the great work. sigh…

  214. the jealous curator /// 06.26.2012 /// 7:19pm

    ha! thank you … but don’t be depressed! i wish i made mosaics like you!

    Hello Jealous Curator!

    I just recently found your blog and I love it!

    If you have the chance take a look at http://www.elisewindsor.com

    all best,

  222. M. Sharon Baker /// 08.06.2012 /// 4:36pm

    I’m extremely jealous of Sue Benner’s nests and thought you might want to take a peak.

    I’d love to buy prints of her quilts or even postcards….

  223. Dana /// 08.09.2012 /// 11:46am

    Curious – how do you find all of the wonderful artists that you post about? im a recent art grad – and honestly, i havent been excited about art in a long time – not until i found this blog.

    thanks for that!

  224. the jealous curator /// 08.09.2012 /// 11:48am

    thanks so much dana – that’s an amazing compliment! i find the artists online, via shows i go to, and honestly… a whole bunch of submissions show up in my inbox every day. i’m really lucky : )

  225. Lorette C. Luzajic /// 08.10.2012 /// 10:49am

    I absolutely love this blog. You have helped me discover new ways of seeing and such a range of creativity!

    I invite you to look at my art and photography in hopes that you may wish to showcase my work. I primarily explore visual art with my camera and through mixed media collage paintings.

    This link is to my Flickr “Greatest Hits” page.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/creativityvault/sets/72157630970554540/

    My work has been featured in Life Imitating Art Magazine, CrossCurrents Magazine, the Toronto Quarterly, Syncopated Chaos, Sublime Rush, Art Nectar, Touched By Fire, and more. I have recently exhibited at the Pilot Gallery in Toronto, the Toronto Public Library, and the Royal Ontario Museum.

    My creative statement as an artist and writer is as follows:

    “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.’”-Jim Jarmusch

    Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you require any further information, do not hesitate to ask. You may enjoy the information about my books and my visual artwork on my website, http://www.ideafountain.ca.

    Best,
    Lorette C. Luzajic

    Just came across your blog a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. As an artist I totally understand the “jealousy” you feel when viewing other artists’ works. As a registrar and curator I also see and appreciate how you present and curate the jealousy. Good job, am now following on twitter and put your blog in my reader!

  253. Trish (aka littlebrownwren) /// 09.26.2012 /// 12:13pm

    Have enjoyed browsing your finds & love being led to artists who are new to me!

    With that being said, I ran across some work that fascinated me to the point that I spent over an hour going through her Flickr photostream. The artist’s name is Fiona Watson, & she has two Flickr accounts – the one that immediately drew me in is under the name “fiona watson art”, link here ~ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiona-watson-art/
    Her main account is under the name “wildgoosechase”, link here ~ http://www.flickr.com/photos/wildgoosechase/

    I think you’ll like her work as much as I did ;-) Or maybe you’re already aware of it, but I didn’t find Ms. Watson on a search of this site.

    And thanks for introducing me to so many artists I never would’ve found on my own! Keep all the good stuff coming.

    Trish W.

    Hi

    Just wanted to say hello from South Africa- I love your blog and wanted to tell you about http://www.itswhatiminto.com you might find it interesting as we cover local art and design as well as interiors and fashion. I also do guest posts on Poppytalk.

    Regards
    Sara

  275. Nat Coalson /// 12.07.2012 /// 1:42am

    Hello from England!

    Thanks for all you do with your blog – I love seeing the work of the artists you feature and enjoy your writing. I’ve found loads of inspiration from your blog.

    I’d also like to share my work with you; I work mainly in photography and mixed media. I love abstraction … and find truly abstract photography challenging and rewarding.

    I invite you to visit http://www.NatCoalson.com and would love you hear your thoughts, especially with regard to my abstract work.

    Cheers!
    Nat

  276. the jealous curator /// 12.07.2012 /// 8:17am

  277. Charles /// 12.10.2012 /// 4:40am

    Hi,

    Really love the blog and the idea of it,
    and I am definitely familiar with that inspiring yet pretty painful jealousy you are talking about!

    We are a french collective called A.S.A.P! using pretty much every media we can to do what we do, and I hope you’ll enjoy!

    Cheers

    Hi! I love your blog so much!

    My collaborator Adi and I have been working on a series of motivational PSAs that I think would be rad for the jealous curator and all its readers. We just released the third PSA, Be Cool, this week. But also make sure to check out the first two, Darkness and Loops.

    JIMMYnADI are a creative duo living, dreaming and hustling in Los Angeles. These Motivational Public Service Announcements are made for creative minded people to help keep everyone motivated to keep going, have a clear mind, and to constantly do your best.

    We hope you love them.

    Thanks!

    Hi there! I stumbled across your blog by randomly browsing through tons of other blogs and sites and now – I may be a little bit in love…
    You feature such amazing artists and it’s all so very inspiring!
    Keep up the good work – I really, really enjoy your little corner of the internet!

    hello jealous curator

    a perfect name for your blog. and amazing stuff you post. found you via boooooooom (not sure about the number of o’s in there). been hooked ever since.

    here’s a link to one of the projects i’ve been working on the side – http://juvenilebuttrockets.tumblr.com/

    do check it out please. and let me know what you think.

    cheers
    hari

  282. Katie /// 12.27.2012 /// 5:43am

    As a fellow designer, I COMPLETELY relate to that feeling… there is no other way to describe it; it is both soul-crushing and inspirational. You’ve nailed it, and that is why I love your blog!

  283. the jealous curator /// 12.27.2012 /// 12:33pm

    thanks katie : )

  284. Ally Burguieres /// 12.27.2012 /// 3:12pm

    Hi JC!!

    I just discovered your blog and am HOOKED. I also noticed others have been posting links to work they think might entice your eye and satisfy your readers! I’d love to know your thoughts on my Notebook Series. They are large-scale canvases (some as tall as 6 feet) that I paint to look like sketches on looseleaf paper. I show my work here in New Orleans and always have people say, “I wish I had thought of that!!” It’s such a simple concept, and I did not anticipate the universal appeal and effect the paintings evoke from visitors to my shop. I’m thrilled that it inspires a sense of nostalgia and recognition in people of all backgrounds and ages. Please see examples at the link:

    http://www.galleryburguieres.com/the-notebook-series.html

    Thanks so much!!! I also invented the Wish Dog (www.WishDogandFriends.com). Funny little critters that blow smoke from their mouths while manifesting your wishes.

    Thank you for all the work you do to inspire, enrich, and curate!!

    Love xoxo
    Ally

  285. Aubrey Laret /// 12.29.2012 /// 10:21am

    Hi there Jealous Curator,

    Like you I have spent my professional life in commercial design as an Art Director and latterly as a Creative Director. Over the last few years I have been producing my own images.

    My work loosely splits in to two streams. Digitally created work and Photography (not always created with a camera and found here http://cargocollective.com/aubreylaret ).

    Your blog is fascinating and a regular stop off point for me on my art travels around the web.

    Thank you
    Aubrey

    Hello Jealous Curator,
    I love your blog and I would like to subscribe. How do I do it?
    (When I press ’subscribe’ this comes up : This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below????). Sorry if I sound silly : ) THank you

  287. Marcia /// 01.01.2013 /// 9:20am

    BIG FAN…but I, like Anna, can not seem to subscribe and I am not sure why. any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much…..

  288. the jealous curator /// 01.01.2013 /// 9:49am

    hm! so weird… ok, i’ll have my programmer look into it! thanks for letting me know!

  289. the jealous curator /// 01.01.2013 /// 9:51am

    ok, it works for me… which browser are you both on? maybe that’s where the trouble lies?

  290. Brenna /// 01.04.2013 /// 9:16am

    Hi Jealous Curator,

    I absolutely love your blog! It is so inspiring, and indeed constantly makes me wish I had thought of stuff first:) If you have a moment, please check out my website to see the series I just completed–they seem right up your alley. They’re 6 graphite portraits with embroidery inspired by vintage photos of my female relatives (they are on the ‘current works’ page of the site). Thanks again for the incredible blog!

  291. the jealous curator /// 01.04.2013 /// 9:52am

    ooh! very cool. i just pinned “elsa” to my pinboard! : )

  292. Tracy /// 01.06.2013 /// 2:56pm

    Jealousy is a negative emotion? It is also negative to comment negatively on the internet. Your site is great! And I too feel that same “negative emotion” when I see work I love. “Why is that not in my head?” & ” I need to work more” Have a great day, so glad I happened upon you site!

  293. Mel /// 01.07.2013 /// 8:52am

    Hi J-C!

    I have a friend who has talked about “Angry Artist Syndrome”, which is essentially the same thing as being a “jealous curator”. I’ve never described my feelings as such; perhaps my enthusiasm for all of the amazing art out there crushes any jealousy or anger I may have for not thinking of it first. There is ALWAYS the inspiration that comes from seeing all of this incredible art, and it has made me a better artist. Who knows – maybe someday someone will be “jealous” of my artwork! :D

    Thanks so much for showcasing all of this incredible talent for us! And about your amazing blog – I wish I had thought of it first. ;)

  294. the jealous curator /// 01.07.2013 /// 8:56am

    thanks mel! when i started 4 years ago, i really was jealous (not in an angry way, more in a sad way). now however, i’ve learned that there truly is a place for anyone that wants to make art. yes, you’ll come across work that you wish you did… but now that’s fuel to get back into the studio!! : )

  295. chrysa koukoura /// 01.07.2013 /// 9:48am

    i love your blog. its awesome. one of my first stops for inspiration.

    I come to your site often and this last time I was searching for Mary Jane Ansell’s work. Nothing came up so I wasn’t sure if you’ve seen her portraits. Super gorgeous and realistic with kind of a dark moody feeling about them.

    Congratulations on so many years with this blog! I wish I had known about your blog when I was still at school…it would have helped with all the raging jealousy and those moments when I lacked any bit of inspiration.

    Admittedly, I’m still a jealous artist but I’m a happier one too now that I found my little illustration niche. But there’s always room for more jealously of all the amazing artists you post here!

    (probably not the art you normally like but I wanted to share anyways: http://www.sketchynotions.com)

    Dear Jealous Curator,
    Thank you for providing your readers with thoughtful posts that keep us all informed about the work others are making. Your blog introduces me to “hidden gems” one at a time. The recent Richard Vergez post was outstanding.

    I’m excited to share my recent work with you, so when you have a chance, please check out my website. Also, I’m part of a curatorial collaboration in Kansas City, MO called Plug Projects that I think might interest you. Thank you…Caleb

    I’m so happy I came upon this blog! I love your concept and am excited to follow you. You are so approachable and I love that in a person :)
    A friend sent me a link to the Emily Henderson Blog about The Fig House. I think every artist dreams of having a 10,000 sq. ft space to fill with art. What fun!!!
    I would love to share my work with you. It is a process I having been developing over the last three years. I am able to do this process on any photo of any size. The Africa Series will be featured soon by Bono’s organization ONE! I am proud of the work and I hope you enjoy.
    Blessings to you in all you do and have a great evening!

  338. Jeff Claassen /// 05.01.2013 /// 9:16am

    I just discovered your site through booooooom.com and think it’s brilliant! You’ve obviously struck a chord with the “jealous” thing. As soon as I read the tagline in your banner I was like, “I’M NOT ALONE.” At one time I “retired” from painting for about six months after seeing the work of an artist who’s work I thought was amazing. The thought process was, “If this guy is making stuff like this why should I even bother.” Luckily, the “retirement” ended when I realized I had to draw/paint to survive. After doing it for so long it had become a necessity, like breathing. Cheesy, I know, but it’s true. That was years ago and now I’ve been living off my art since 2004. Anyway…
    I wanted to tell you about a project I just launched on Kickstarter. It’s called “The Puzzle Painting” and came about as a response to living off the sales of art to survive. I love painting BIG things, but they are sometimes difficult to sell, so I’ve been painting a lot of smaller pieces for the last couple of years. This “Puzzle Painting” idea fulfills my selfish need/desire to paint BIG, but keeping the work accessible by selling pieces of it. If you have a minute please take a look at it:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jeffclaassen/the-puzzle-painting

    Thanks for your time and the awesome blog!

  350. ABSTRACTUS /// 05.13.2013 /// 2:34pm

    Hello Danielle
    I am Ximena Steevens, and with Mauricio Velez are the artist duet known as Abstractus since 2002, when we decided to condense all of our material and conceptual experimentation and research (personal and aesthetic) within a concept, to reflect the truth in ways that help to find freedom from the turbulent world around us. Ours, has been an evolutionary process of shared exploration throughout Europe, North and Latin America.

    Our work draws from the use of collective thoughts and interpretations from life’s distinctive array of facets, comprised by emotional crossing motivated by our relationship and distinct aesthetic experiences. (We are husband and wife since 2000).

    For us art is more than a form of intellectual entertainment represented in a desired object, but the most advanced form of language that invites our reason and instinct to become a substance that fills the void of a clear reality that is asphyxiating us but we avoid to observe.

    “Present human existence as a paradoxical fact is the core of Abstractus work. Trough art, we question the alienation that we all love so much, while unsustainable future is under construction by careless insiders in this impassive chaos.”

    Abstractus’ work raises the possibility of an isolated reality in the paradox of objects and the mental properties of subjects that are limited by their own truth full of trickery. Our work is an existential ratification, a palpable object filled with texture, form and color, to be placed explicitly face to face with humanity and its immediate surroundings.

    We make use of all types of combinations, mixed techniques, installations and photographs to confront the spectator with a puzzle with each one of our art pieces. Our own mixed technique is based on the combination of materials, photography, photo installation and image manipulation, and right is the mature result of more than ten years of shared study and exploration. Nowadays we can affirm that there are lots of Abstractus’ pieces in many different places in the world, and our CV includes more than 30 exhibitions in New York, Chicago, Montreal, Brussels, and Amsterdam among others.

    I’d like to invite you to visit ABSTRACTUS collective website and/or Facebook page.
    Hope you find Abstractus’ art interesting.

    Hi Danielle,
    I wanted to thank you for what is really a fantastic repository of contemporary artwork. You featured my friend Jillian (Ludwig) Dickson’s fantastic work a little while back (she has gorgeous new drawings!) and I am in the process of contacting one of the commenters above about a possible curatorial project, so you also help to keep artists abreast and in touch with one another.

    I would like to share my own work with you. The most recent work is in the top three albums.
    amysacksteder.com

    Thanks so much and congrats on your forthcoming books!
    Amy

  353. the jealous curator /// 05.22.2013 /// 6:56am

  354. Hortense /// 05.23.2013 /// 12:47pm

    Hello, I discovered your blog through Artsy Forager, Your selection is really fantastic and so surprising! With my partner we thought perhaps you might be interested by our photographic works that take place exclusively underwater.

    Here is the link of our website: http://forlane6studio.com/

    Hope you enjoy!

    Thanks for giving emerging artist the possibility to showcase there work!

  355. Hortense /// 05.30.2013 /// 12:25pm

    Hello again, I would just like to specify our work is composed of ephemeral sculptures and installations of transformed daily objects documented underwater photography. Not really marine life imagery…

    Anyway thought it was worth mentionning.

    Cheers!

  356. the jealous curator /// 05.30.2013 /// 2:56pm

    Hello. I love your blog and use it regularly in teaching the concept of a consistent body of work to my high school AP Studio Art class. The last time I showed the site to them, my students asked if I’d ever been featured. I said no. They said why. I said there are millions artists out there. They said, it’s a blog, just submit your stuff. I said, can I do that? They said, duh. So, here goes nothing. Thanks.

    I’ve checked your blog daily for the past two years – it is wonderful, a real treat during the day. I’ve always thought my work would fit in well and wanted to pass along a recent performative/photographic project of mine. The photos are all titled “Make Due and Mend” and feature a hand knit body covering that I knit over the course of a year.

    They can be found on my website

    Another recommendation! I was looking at Richard Renaldi’s website as I love the concept and photography of his Touching Strangers project. And then I saw his Elderly Gay & Lesbian archive project and my jealousy really kicked in – it is so beautifully done. Here’s the link, I hope you enjoy them too! http://www.renaldi.com/archive/#num=content-658&id=album-20

    You have made a wonderful blog. I love dipping in to it as I’m not in the art world and its a moreish place to visit that always feels like just what I was needing. Thank you!

    I just found your website and I must say it is pretty spectacular. I feel the same way as you do. Being an artist myself, I am always thinking, “why didn’t I think of that”! I love so many different forms of art and your curated collections are wonderful. When will you be in TN next? I just moved to the state and would love to see one of your shows or talks.

    Love your blog! Been following it for over a year and keep on recommending it to all my artist friends.
    If you get a chance to check out my website Omaitz.com, like to know if you would be interested in writing about the work. My installations do not get featured on blogs– it would be an honor! Keep up the awesome curating!

    Best Regards,

    Jen

  415. the jealous curator /// 09.22.2013 /// 9:00am

    oh thanks so much jen! i have your paintings bookmarked already (they’re fantastic!), and your installations are gorgeous too… i think the reason your installations haven’t been featured on blogs is just the documentation. can you get someone to take more photos of them? you can tell they’re amazing, but if the photos were cleaner/crisper they’d be super easy to feature! : )

  416. Missy Dahl /// 09.25.2013 /// 9:09am

    My dear friend, Mary Gaspar, told me about your site in regards to my own creative flow…..she thought you’d enjoy taking a look at my hand-embroidery work that I first learned 4 years ago and enjoy making my own patterns.
    Very basic as of yet, and I am starting to incorporate more fabrics and ink into the ideas…..

    All the best to you! LOVE your site!
    Thank you for promoting all the amazing work that is out in this world.

    Hello,

    Nice site… you have a great eye! I would love to know your opinion of what I think is the best work of my life… (my work is in major museums worldwide) If you have 5 minutes the video does a pretty good job of describing and getting you close enough to see the work. (large scale photographic abstractions on the Infinite).

    See very poetic gallery video here:

    Thomas Brummett is exhibiting “Of Earth and Heaven, Selections from the Series “Infinities” at the Schmidt Dean Gallery in Philadelphia.
    These complex and layered photographs combine stars, snow, mold grown in the studio, magnolia blossoms, and custom “light projections”
    that manipulate circles of confusion to render images made from of the cosmos and earth. Known for his painterly photographic depictions of nature, Tom is becoming decidedly more abstract with this impressive new body of work.

  424. Joey Salamon /// 10.02.2013 /// 1:00pm

    I stumbled upon your blog around a month ago and it quickly became one that I check quite frequently. I just relaunched my website a few days ago with a bunch of revamped images and if you have time I’d love for you to check them out to see if they could be featured.

    Keep posting and keep inspiring! :)

    it to my 4 yеar old daughteг and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her eаr and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside anԁ it pinched heг ear.

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I just love your eye. This is a project we are working on with Nick Cave that might make you jealous :)

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iamastranger/i-am-a-stranger

    The more exposure we can get the more likely we can make it happen.

    Thanks for all your do,
    Sofia

  436. Night Diver Press /// 10.22.2013 /// 12:12pm

    Hey Jealous Curator. I’m Pete. My partner, Lena, and I have a print/illustration team in SF called Night Diver Press. Just the two of us. We make screen prints and t-shirts but we really specialize in small editions of books. We’re almost finished with a series of 5 called Heavens + Humans. Lena does the illustrations then I screen print and bind them. All by hand.

    Anyway we’ve made a small prototype edition and just started a Kickstarter Campaign to fund making a complete edition of 25 sets. If you’re interested we’d like to know if/how you could help us promote it and what you’d need from us.

    Thanks so much for your time and please let us know your thoughts.

    Cheers,

    Pete

  437. the jealous curator /// 10.22.2013 /// 3:30pm

    Hello!

    I’m an artist, photographer, and art educator and I LOVE your blog. I completely understand where your jealousy comes from – I feel like my jealousy of other artists comes from a similar place. My kids in my class always laugh because I’m constantly telling them that they need to look at more artists, now I will be steering them towards your blog as evidence.

    I have my own inspiration blog on tumblr as well if you want to see the artists that make me (and my 15 year olds, haha) jealous. maramagyarosi.tumblr.com

    Thank you for what you do!
    Mara

  444. the jealous curator /// 10.27.2013 /// 9:00pm

    oh, thanks so much mara! yes, send those 15 year olds over here!!! :)

  445. Daiva Mitchell /// 10.28.2013 /// 5:55am

    I just came across your blog and love it! It’s so great to be introduced to new artists and their amazing work. I am jealous of thejealouscurator! I would love you to look at the art work of my best friend. I am totally jealous of her ability to make the coolest contemporary art! She would also love to expand her clientele and we’ve both agreed that California is the place to go. Check her out at http://www.meredithbingham.com and let me know what you think.

  446. the jealous curator /// 10.28.2013 /// 8:16am

    thanks so much daiva! i’ll go and check her out right now : )

  450. Anne Tirey /// 10.31.2013 /// 6:38pm

    I see in your space the love of enjoying being inspired and not as much sharing of your own work. I like to talk off-topic, which is where I go to see the world: all over and in crevices. Although you are focused and devine, I see my views have company! Thank you for your fresh and true work – let’s look around! I was surprised to find myself in a similar but differently- organized area. Thank you.

    I don’t know how I stumbled on your blog a few years ago, but I never miss a post! I love the art that you have exposed me to and it truly is worth every bit of envy! I am an artisan jewelry designer. Yes, I have had my art jewelry in exhibitions and most notably of late two pieces selected for the Showcase 500 Art Jewelry Necklaces publication by Lark, but I wanted to share with you a local artist in our artists cooperative that I am a part of. His name is Alexander Landerman. His website features a beautifully produced video showing timelapse of how he makes one of his letterpress and charcoal works of art. I am smitten with the detail in his work! I think you might be too! I hope you will check it out: http://alexanderlanderman.com/

  461. the jealous curator /// 11.13.2013 /// 10:58am

    Hi! Firstly, I’d like to say how inspiring your curation skills are – I’m a big fan of your website and love your taste! I am an Art student hoping to go into gallery/online curation and would love the opportunity to gain some more experience in the area. Do you work alone in the upkeep of our website? I would love to be able to help! Either way please feel free to check out my blogs…I also upkeep Pinterest, Flickr & Saatchi Online accounts.
    Thank-you so much!

  466. Ms Brightside /// 11.23.2013 /// 10:24am

    hey, I recently found your blog and fell in love with the caption! Really that is the feeling I feel I’m wandering in art galleries most of the time. I do make some art works sometimes but I think I lack creativity so I thought I better just learn and enjoy the arts rather than making it haha:)

    I started an arts blog a month ago, even though I can’t find time to post a lot of stuff now, hopefully I’ll be working on it to make it better and better in coming days.
    Loved your blog, hope I also have an amazing blog like this with lots of amazing followers who enjoy the same interests with me!

  467. the jealous curator /// 11.23.2013 /// 1:37pm

    do it! it’s so rewarding, and amazing to create a group of like-minded people so that you can all enjoy the work together! good luck!

  468. Lindsay Arnold /// 12.01.2013 /// 6:51am

    Your posts have been a bright point in my facebook feed for over a year now. I love your celebration of the artist while admitting the jealousy. If only everyone would do that!

    Keep posting so this artist in the middle of nowhere can keep enjoying!

    All the best
    Lindsay

  469. the jealous curator /// 12.01.2013 /// 9:46am

    Hello! A friend of mine just introduced me to this blog, and after seeing your post about Stephanie K. Clark, I hoped that you would enjoy my artwork as well, which also explores the use of embroidery in art, but in a very different way. I’d be flattered if you’d take the time to look!

    Hello! I love your blog! I just found it today via Art Hound. I’m an artist from Portland, Oregon and I’m currently working on a series of “dumpster abstractions”- painted woodcarvings inspired by the rust, scratches and peeling paint I find and photograph around town. I’d love it if you’d take a look at my website- I just spent 6 hours updating it just for you! Thanks so much, I hope I made you jealous! -Evan Orlando

  472. Evan Orlando /// 12.02.2013 /// 5:27pm

    Hey there,

    I was on your site and noticed that you used WordPress as your platform. I thought I’d reach out and invite you to use our free advanced content delivery WordPress plugin that reduces bandwidth costs. In addition to reduced bandwidth costs your site will also experience improved image serving based on your end users geographical location like a traditional CDN. This Swarm plugin also comes with a free advanced video player and only takes a few minutes to install.

    Although we are a type of CDN you can run our plugin concurrently with your CDN (or any host) and we actually encourage it. For example, we have many sites running us on top of MaxCDN, Cloudflare, Cloudfront and others for maximum efficiency.

    I was hoping we could discuss further and you’d allow me to send you our special private invitation (bypass link). As an early adopter you’ll bypass the Professional Paid Plan that we’re working on implementing.

    Philip

    There is so much amazing work on your blog! Thank you for the inspiration/jealousy :) It is wonderful to have a resource like this to get excited about new work. Thank you!

  489. Tracey /// 01.08.2014 /// 4:36pm

    Hi Danielle- I simply loooooove your site.
    I’m hoping that you can help me as I finally have enough money to purchase from one of your featured artists BUT !!!!!! I can’t seem to find her or remember her name !
    She does sculpture with crochet/knitting over animal forms (and I believe that you have a piece of hers). The one I remember (and hope is still available) is a pale-ish blue wolf with a lemon in its mouth.
    I REALLY need to learn to bookmark this stuff . Thanks so much, Tracey

  490. the jealous curator /// 01.08.2014 /// 10:40pm

    rachel denny!!!! yes, she (and her work) is amazing!!! if the wolf with lemon isn’t available, you can contact her to do a commissioned piece (that’s what i did to get my hot pink deer head!) … http://racheldenny.com/contact.html
    good luck! let me know what you get : )

  491. Erin /// 01.09.2014 /// 9:42am

    Hey there Danielle!!

    Holy freaking moly!!!! This is such a great site for inspiration!!! Thanks for curating such a beautiful collection of work!!! It is so varied but all so so nice!! I can’t wait for your book to come out!!

    Just wanted to stop by and say hello and thanks for a nice nice site!!

    I’m leaving my work here: http://eringuido.tumblr.com/

    But, it is probably not as finished and refined as the stuff you publish, but I’m still working ;)

    Happy New Year!

    Erin

  492. the jealous curator /// 01.09.2014 /// 9:52am

    hey erin! your work is great… especially love the text work (i pinned a few!). do you sell those anywhere? etsy?

  493. maja /// 01.09.2014 /// 10:17am

    hi, danielle, happy new year!

    i’ve been keeping up with your blog and facebook for the past few months and thought i’d finally be in touch. there are a few artists — cig harvey and paulette tavormina, to name two — that i think might really be up your alley. you may already know about both of them (how do you keep everyone in your head?!) but i want to be sure. you can find both of them on our website..alongside several other greats.

    thanks for sharing your great eye!

    very best,

    maja

  494. Erin /// 01.09.2014 /// 10:32am

    Oh man, thanks so much Danielle!! Funny that you ask…a couple friends asked for prints, so I’m in the process of printing some on nice paper! I’m happy to send you one!! :) I have been thinking about setting up an etsy site, but I don’t have one yet!

    PS Maja….great suggestions!

  495. the jealous curator /// 01.09.2014 /// 12:52pm

    good for you! go for it! let me know when you have an etsy shop and i’ll be your first customer :)

  496. Nicole /// 01.09.2014 /// 5:37pm

    Hello! I recently found this blog and I’ve been having a blast looking through it. I love the huge range of art that you feature and can only imagine the hours you’ve put into it. Thank you for dedicating so much time to creating a beautiful little corner of the Internet for all to enjoy.

    I wanted to share with you my recently-launched Kickstarter campaign, a project where I’ll draw the dreams of those who support it. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/673271658/the-dream-complex-if-youve-dreamt-it-i-will-draw-i

    I’m not sure if you feature stuff like this, and no worries if you don’t. It would be great if you just took a look and tell people about it. Thanks for your time! :)

    Have a great day,
    Nick

    You are awesome, totally awesome. I admire you and all that you create AND, I have a wonderful friend, somewhat like yourself (artist, self doubting genius) who lives in Oakland, CA and would love to share her work with you to check out. I tell Adele, that she is my muse; that her artistic genius inspires me – - as does yours. Adele Crawford is her name, her website is http://www.adelecrawford.com and I know you will enjoy her creative genius AND perhaps begin that Girl Crush in Oakland. Keep up your creative genius and stop the self doubt!

    I really enjoy your blog at every update. Its so interesting and well balanced in terms of your choices. Thanks for being an additional voice out there for us artists. Your support is needed. We all make our work regardless of the audience and its so inspiring when others see it and encourage us to continue. Heres a link to a series of lithograph’s I just recently completed at Litho Shop in Baltimore MD. They are called ‘Cracker bags’ & I’m very excited about them and hope you enjoy them too!

    I’ve been following (jealously) along with you for years! Especially in moments of utter frustration after graduating art school and feeling lost, your site has continued to be such a great source of inspiration! I don’t often shamelessly share links of my work but I thought you’d like a recent illustration project I did for my design studio. You can check it out here: http://wedesignstudios.com/work/business_cards_02/
    and the original patterns and illustrations here: http://cargocollective.com/lauraworrick

    Either way, keep doing what you’re doing, ’cause it makes me happy :)
    Laura

    Hi,

    I just wanted to recommend an old friend of mine for you to take a peek at his artwork. It is imaginative, detailed, trippy and creepy at times – everything you want in fine art, yes?

  523. Sarah /// 02.11.2014 /// 12:57pm

    Hi I love your blog!
    I recently discovered the work of Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya and thought you might like his stuff. He makes these really adorable, whimsical sculptures of different creatures that are sculpted from wood but are very delicate looking, almost as if they are made from porcelain. Just wanted to share it with you. :)

    Hello,
    I’ve been following your blog for over a year now, I figure it’s about time I point you to one of my good friends… He’s been working insanely hard since graduating from Pratt and his newest work on his blog really shows it. Hope you enjoy!

    I am late to the party (been living on a strawberry farm in Africa) and for a second there I thought maybe this was a blog of the past. But here you are! Glorious!

  530. Eric Rogers /// 02.17.2014 /// 7:28am

    What a great idea for a blog. I wish I had thought of it :) Just wanted to say I think you’re doing awesome work and to encourage you to keep it up! If you have time, check out my new art blog: http://beautifulsurface.com. It’s relatively new but I’m proud of it. Take care.

  531. the jealous curator /// 02.17.2014 /// 7:51am

    thanks so much eric… and your site is gorgeous! lots of great picks – enjoy the ride {it’s pretty addictive!} ;)

  532. Mina /// 02.20.2014 /// 7:12am

    I want to first congratulate you on all of your success, I have been enjoying your features for years now and you are getting better, bigger and brighter. I support your choice to not go to school for this and instead, get the real world, hands on knowledge – I think that that’s what makes you unbiased and more open minded.

    My name is Mina and I make Fine Art Photography – I am a transplant from Europe and found solace in art and photography after moving to NYC, it has been both my catharsis, therapy and kept me connected to myself. My portfolio includes a series of vivid, colorful and lighthearted pieces. Saturated hues, scratches, textures, and blurred motion combine to add a certain charm and nostalgia to each print.

    I think (hope) you and your readers would appreciate my work, you can view more of my work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/minagraphy

    I hope you have a relaxed week! :)

  533. the jealous curator /// 02.20.2014 /// 9:00am

    ah! so lovely mina… they make me want to go on vacation right this very minute! thank you so much for all of the lovely words about TJC. this comment made my day!

  534. Lindsay Stripling /// 02.24.2014 /// 10:11pm

    Hello TJC!

    I just wanted to say thank you for such an amazing blog, I look forward to checking in to discover new emerging artists to inspire me every week.

    When you get a second I would love it if you took a look at my work: http://www.lindsaystripling.com

    I live in SF so I hope to see you March 5th! Congrats on the book!

    Lindsay

  535. Cheryl Hicks /// 02.27.2014 /// 5:34am

    I always enjoy experiencing your fabulous finds! I recently started a blog to document a project I am working on titled, “I Just Don’t Read Like I Used To,” in which I cut up books to create mixed media portraits and other images. I would be thrilled if you take at my site.
    Cheryl

  536. Sam Malpass /// 02.27.2014 /// 1:05pm

    TJC, L O V E your site! What a killer place to catch some inspiration (and feel the jealousy)! I’m sure you have artists lined up- but- if could find the time to scope my work I promise you will not be disappointed. I would love to add to the creativity and uniqueness of your site! I appreciate your time :) CHEERS, Badway http://www.badwaycreative.com

  542. Keith MacLelland /// 03.05.2014 /// 7:20pm

    Thank you TJC for maintaining and sharing such an visually rich and diverse collection artists. Among others, I am particularly drawn to your posts of work by Meghan Stratman, photos and sculptures of Marcela Cárdenas, photography by Autumn de Wilde, as well as the collaged paintings by Elizabeth Amento, Amy Alice Thompson, and Jose Romussi.

    Your quote “stopped in my tracks” resinated with me. While scrolling though your curatorial selections that’s the exact feeling I got when I stumbled onto these artists. Thanks!

    You may find my own work speaks to your sensibilities as well.

    Heroic singing cowboys of the 1950’s are the cultural source of my work. The contemporary hero cowboys I am creating are street and eco-conscious, built from everyday discards – scratch tickets, cracker boxes, juice cartons, business cards, candy wrappers, and junk mail. The color palette is dominated by primary colors, echoing the innocence and purity of the singing cowboy while speaking to today’s technologically amped–up audience. As a nod to the costuming of the 50’s era icon, the works are often embellished with brightly colored pieces and elements such as rhinestones, glitter and silver studs – an equally contemporary fashion consciousness.

    Thank you again Danielle, and thank’s for looking!

    Cheers – Keith

    Wonderful blog? Do you accept by e-mail works of young artist? :D And what is the way to send you some photos? :D

  545. the jealous curator /// 03.11.2014 /// 6:56am

    i do indeed… but i prefer a link to a site. my poor inbox can’t take all of the photos that show up there :) please send a link to contact@thejealouscurator.com

  546. Vicki /// 03.12.2014 /// 7:51am

    Hi Danielle – a friend introduced me to your blog yesterday. I love the concept of turning jealousy into inspiration! Also looking forward to reading Creative Block – we can all use some help in that direction! I’ve recently started my own art blog that includes my paintings and little stories about the circumstance/process behind them. Definitely a work in progress, but I’m hoping others can relate to their life in some way or become inspired. Feel free it check it out – vickiworldart.com.

    Thanks! Vicki

  547. the jealous curator /// 03.12.2014 /// 8:06am

    oh thanks vicki – glad you found your way over here! and good for you for getting your blog going… it has been life changing for me! good luck! : )

  548. Gail Folwell /// 03.17.2014 /// 7:38am

    I’m Gail Folwell, a sculptor with a Design and Fine Art background. ‘Handle The Art’, from Folwell Studios is brand new. These are solid bronze, with a silver/grey patina, pulls and knobs. I believe that sculpture should be touched and I hope that art collections will grace the walls and halls of new and seasoned collectors everywhere. I hope you’re “jealous….in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way”! I’d love you forever if I got a mention in your blog! Design and Fine Arts have finally broken all the boundaries and having lived on both sides of that fence, it’s exciting. Designed products are the new canvas for conceptual and affecting works of Art. More people are starting to understand that it’s not just about how it looks, it’s about how it makes you feel. ‘Handle The Art’ was a personal collection created for our own home. The hardware garnered much attention, as did the house, winning multiple AIA awards. I’m recognized for contemporary, figurative bronze sculpture. My art is in the Denver Art Museum and I’ve done monumental public works for cities across the country, among them, Vail, CO, Frisco, TX, Universities in Ohio, Alabama, private collections and galleries, Claggett/Rey in Vail, I Wolk/Maisonry in the Napa Valley, Hunter Kirkland in Santa Fe and Walker Fine Arts in Denver. I’d love to know your thoughts!

    Hello,
    Beautiful and warm blog that I enjoy perusing with a cup of tea whenever I have the time. I am not sure if my work will fit as its a bit darker in theme but I thought perhaps you might enjoy the simplicity of my embossment drawings or my mono prints. My site is http://www.brynnhigginsstirrup.com I hope you have the time to take a quick look at the work. Thank you and happy monday! – Brynn

  551. Nonney O /// 03.23.2014 /// 5:52pm

    Wanted to give you a shout out. Love your book!! I bought it first, then found your site. I’ve dared never to admit the jealously I experienced when I saw other’s art that I admired- lord, the burning in my chest. (I guess I never even realized it myself!) But over the last years, I am working on “not being that person!” I decided that I rather be inspirational than confrontational! I rather not spread negative energy to the world and for my own wellbeing ! I must say – it takes my breath away about how much talent is out there and how much you’ve highlighted. So thank you !! I find when I’m happiest with myself and others when I’m living my truest self! I have always said the biggest compliment I can give an artist is that “You made me think in a different way! “

  552. the jealous curator /// 03.24.2014 /// 12:35am

    oh i’m so glad you find me nonney, and love your perspective on appreciating other artists work! that truly is a huge compliment to any artist!

  553. Jason Rondinelli /// 03.24.2014 /// 5:58am

    Hi Danielle, I really enjoy reading your blog. I’m writing you to find out of you know of a good curating 101 book to recommend to a visual artist who doesn’t have an eye as sharp as yours. I’d like to know more about the topic and need some basic concrete guidance. Thank you for your time and for your wonderful work! – Jason

  554. the jealous curator /// 03.24.2014 /// 6:54am

I am a soon-to-be-college graduate attempting to continue to live this blissful life where my only job is to work on my art. A friend of mine (and fellow student) was recently published on your blog and she so inspired me (and encouraged me) that I figured I might as well send you my work as well. I hope you enjoy it!

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    My name is Matt Panuska, and I am an artist and Illustrator. I’m also a big fan of the blog and a regular reader. The plethora of photos and detail shots is something that is missing from most art blogs, and it’s something I’m always looking for. I just wanted to say hello and share my work with you. Attached is a link to my work, and perhaps you could take a look at it. Hopefully you like it, and thank you for your time!

    Thanks!

    I am sharing your site with our students and colleagues. As soon as the jealousy I felt from looking at your site subsided, I came to my senses and wanted to share images…maybe you will find them interesting, or perhaps as an interesting screen-saver (?)

    You do a lovely job on this site and I am grateful having discovered it.

    Hi Danielle,

    I started following your blog a few weeks ago and I love it :) I also appreciate how frequently you post! I love looking at pretty things, its such a nice break from my mundane office cubicle :P

    I wanted to share with you a link to an artist that I really love. Take a look here: http://www.artbysteve.squarespace.com/flyingcars/

    He has a range of subject matter. I like some of his architecture pieces, and I love his landscapes, but I just think these flying cars are adorable.

    Anyway, I know you are bombarded my links to websites all the time, but that’s what you love, right? Discovering new art :)

    Best,
    A

    I’m following TJC blog for quite a while and I thought this easter-weekend: Let’s give it a try. I wonder what you think of my illustrations. I make pen drawing and it would be amazing if you can take a look at it.

    Congratulations on your second book. And that is on the shelves om MoMa! I’ll look forward reading it. Your artists-choices feel very fresh in the contemporary art scene to me.

    Best wishes and have a nice easter,

    Hi TJC,
    I was introduced to your webpage through pinterest and now I have been constantly going to your webpage for inspiration.
    I hope you have time to look through my art and give me feedback.

    Thanks for daily inspiration.

    Hi Danielle!
    My name is Dilla, a student from Indonesia who’s currently studying a Communication at the American University of Rome, Italy. I’m currently working on an art and illustration magazine for my thesis project. I have read your book “Creative Block” and I think it’s wonderfully inspiring! I really love the art, the interviews, and the “unblock creative! challenges! So I decided to write the book review for my magazine :) I also interviewed some of the artists you featured such as Holly Farrell, Arian Behzadi, Trey Speegle, and Alyson Fox and it’s very interesting to know what each artist think about the book! I would like to ask you more about it, where should I send it to?

    Also, I’m a beginner illustrator, perhaps you can take a look some of my works on http://www.kreavi.com/ffdilla :)

    Thank you Danielle!

    Kindest greetings from the Eternal City,

    Dilla

    Hey Danielle,

    from time to time I take a walk in the world wide web – in search of inspriring blogs – especially in the field of arts. (I’m a German based painter myself…) A few weeks ago I came across your work – and – WOW – I really love your idea and your high quality collection!!!! Great idea!! I wondered if it would be ok to you if i write about your work on my blog? … And – of course – it would be great if you might want to take a closer look at my work… :-)

    All the best to you and thanks for loads of creative input!
    Best wishes!
    Tanja

    I’m in Eugene, OR, where I gave an artist’s talk today, and one of the questions was, “What do you do when you get into a rut or get stuck?” Did I have book for them! I told them all about Creative Block and gave them a little bit of the art-school history you had shared in NYC (this was at a college). I’ll let them know you’ll be in Portland very soon.

  597. the jealous curator /// 05.01.2014 /// 6:26pm

    What a well curated blog you have!

    I am a fashion designer and artist committed to critically exploring the intersections of fashion, art, and feminism through a unique combination of concept driven and hand crafted items. I’ve recently shown my first series of fine art pieces, Little Thoughts: Embroidered Self Portraits. I would love to see them among the mix at The Jealous Curator.

    Thanks for looking and for inspiring so many!

  606. Benjamin Adelmann /// 05.14.2014 /// 1:14am

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I found your blog because you featured a friend of mine in the past. I thought to submit to you informally here, as I see others have done the same. I had a nice long session scrolling through your picks, and very much enjoyed it. I did a show called “Collisions” that portrayed paradigm shifts as experienced personally through moving abroad from Los Angeles to Tokyo. My website shows a selection of these paintings as the first four in the gallery page. I really appreciate your consideration! I did notice that my style is a bit different than what you usually post, so it may not be something that goes with your site, and if so I totally understand.

    Keep up the awesome online curation!

    Benjamin Adelmann

    HI there,

    I just wanted to pass along the work of a friend of mine, because as a longtime follower of your blog I think you would really love her work:

  608. Xavier Wynn /// 05.15.2014 /// 10:42am

    Hello!

    I wanted to submit some artwork for your blog. My wife and I have collaborated on a series of wicked sick found object sculptures over the past year. They are explorations in identity and personality; surrealist portraits inspired by medical imagery (those awesome Body Slices that used to be displayed at the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago) and created using found objects that my wife and I have collected since forever (memories, bits, treasures, trash and love). We wanted to create something that explored personality and character in a unique way that expressed something very personal for us yet still let other people find something for themselves as well.

    You can see the work at http://www.emnxw.com (along with other potentially brain imploding art – beware).

    We are really proud of these pieces. They are personal, beautiful, odd, original and tell special stories.

    Thank you very much for your time and sharing the wonderful work you have found.

    have a great day

    Xavier Wynn

    Hello,
    You do good work,
    I think I do good work,
    Maybe you will also.
    Here it is,
    What the heck.
    Thank you.

  610. Kelly Cook /// 05.16.2014 /// 5:31pm

    First of all- thank you thank you! This blog brings me back from the blahs and the can’t-dos and the mundane and really pushes me to create. It is like nothing I have seen and I appreciate it so much. Thank. You.

    Secondly- the most lovely woman I know just “retired” from teaching Art to pursue her work full time. She has work that I am 100% jealous of, and I think you will adore her and her story. Where I am a blabber mouth, I don’t think she would ever toot her own horn, so I just wanted to toot it for her. She also let’s her little girls paint on her work and incorporates it in to enormous, dreamy paintings.

    I hope her work resonates, and thank you again. Can’t wait to get your book and keep finding reasons to create.

    Timothy,Any chance we do not need the ISC supplicant with Windows 7? One can only hope….I’ve installed, tested and read a bit about Windows 7. The beta does offer roughly %10 improvement in performance. And it is more compatible with 3rd party software.However, I am kind of taken aback by the fact that MS releases this new OS only 2 years after Vista.Thanks,Stan

  615. Claire Cundiff /// 05.24.2014 /// 6:06pm

    Wow. It is such a delight to find someone with such a great eye for art. I had to close my gallery of 97 local artists at the end of last year and miss the breathtaking variety of art on my walls. It did give me the chance to play with my own work, so there is always a silver lining. I so look forward to seeing more incredible work, thanks to you. If I’m not being too forward, I’d like to introduce you to my own work, encaustics, oil pencil and pastel on slate tiles. I love how the human form and stone go hand in hand. I hope you enjoy them. Thank you!

  616. Jacqueline /// 05.27.2014 /// 12:41am

  617. Brenna Daugherty /// 05.31.2014 /// 6:34pm

    I believe my first comment on here was made a couple years ago during college. I’m back to let you know that your eye for beautiful work has inspired me all the way through school and beyond. I still seek your blog when I’m feeling unsure of where I should go next with my work and I always leave excited with my absolute love for art rekindled. Thanks so much for that. I see you get this often, but if you’d like to take a peek at my illustration work, I’d be beyond honored (it involves cats, flowers, vintage lingerie and swirly hair, yay!) and P.S. congrats on your book!!

    Hi there
    I love your blog- you have gorgeous work on here. I regularly use this as inspiration for my students at work (I’m an artist educator). As a UK artist/designer/maker I have recently started making work again to sell (mainly for children) and would love it if you would take a look. I’m influenced by nature, traditional nursery rhyme and stories and my imagination!
    Thanks so much :)

    Oh, oh, oh, I can’t wait for you to see the work of Ruth Marten — incredible, subtle, mischievous and mysterious drawn interventions on found botanical/zoological/historical illustrations. You may have to view in full screen to see what she’s done — she blends her own work so seamlessly with the original. http://www.ruthmarten.com

  641. Scott Sawtell /// 07.17.2014 /// 7:35am

    I just wanted to say that your blog is wonderful. Also, I read with sadness the Facebook post about the teacher who had a negative effect on your painting and congratulate you on picking up the brush again. As an art teacher, I often hear of destructive comments being made to students and it is terrible every time. Everything you do adds to the world and you have done way more for people than that “teacher” ever could. Huzzah!

  647. Sara /// 07.25.2014 /// 12:44pm

    Dear Daniella,
    I wish to tell you a bit about insecurity and a real good source for a ‘writers’ block…. Since you write about it and have a great sensibility for what can drive you to keep going on creating work, i thought I would share my latest experience with you (and your blog readers)….

    Last week I was at a retirementhome for an exposition of my lastest work. You should know that I’m not someone who finds it easy to expose my work. I’m a pretty closed person and find it hard to send my work into the world, so this was quite a step for me.
    But, that said, at the moment I had put my work on the walls I thought that it was all hanging nicely, at my satisfaction and feeling quite content.
    Following I shared this on my facebook account etc.

    Untill…. this thursday, when the director of the retirement home came to me to make ‘his’ comment about my work. This is what he told me;
    He had received some messages from inhabitants of the retirement home that they found my work a bit too intense, they felt unsafe with it and thought it was a bit scary even. There had been feelings that connected to the the ones people felt about the whole plaincrash situation in Ukrain (in Holland, where I live, this is quite intense at the moment). He really didn’t want the inhabitants of his retirementhome to feel unsafe (me neither of course), so he kindly asked me to remove some of the works that caused the feeling of unsafeness.

    Yeah…. Maybe you can understand that that gave me some conflicitng feelings. On one hand i felt pretty humiliated that he asked me te remove some work, a bit angry too, but on the other hand it’s also a compliment that obviously the work gave people something to think about and, not less important, feel someting! The last comment I make is, of course, rational, not emotional.

    A pretty good base for insecurity end a ‘writer block’, isn’t it? Especially when the base isn’t so solid to begin with….

    Welll, this is what I just wanted to share with you. Thank you for ‘listening’ and thank you very much for your nice blog and inspirering shared artwork!
    Greets from the Netherlands!

    Wow. Good for you… so impressed that you could see the positive part of that experience, and rightly so! Clearly your work made an impact! Now you just need to find a gallery that can handle “unsafe” work : )
