I just came across across your site and am loving the artists that you’ve featured, as well as the jealousy angle, which is supremely relatable. I curate a drawing blog called HAND Drawing, which features contemporary drawing contributors from around the world. We would love it if you checked it out and if you liked it, to trade links with us!
Hi there, haven’t seen too much like this on your site, maybe cause you hate it, not jealous at all…but have a look and see? Thanks. LOVE your site, it inspires me when I need it most!! Keep up the good work.
May I add your blog to my list?
Also, have you ever seen or given credit to Keith LoBue? He has a blog, Stuffsmith. He teaches in Australia where he lives, but also in the US. What about Jane Wynn?
Just giving you some ideas.
Hope you don’t mind.
LOVE your blog… Really great
Thanks for posting such great stuff
Cool blog! Love the concept and all the posts I’ve read so far. Saw your write up in Sunset Magazine and followed the link. I also have a- how should I put it?- complicated relationship with other artists, especially if I like their work more than mine.. hehe, but I support every artist nevertheless. I am a photographer and admirer of art and live in LA. My blog is http://lifeinspanglish.wordpress.com…Thanks for the inspiration!
Hi, really love your blog! I found you on Tumblr through someone i’m following, and would love to re-blog and/or follow you! I’m having some trouble in finding out how to do either. Any help you could give me? Would love to always be able to find you!
I enjoy your blog, and particularly the great collection of links.
I thought you might be interested in In The Make, http://www.inthemake.com.
It is a relatively new site that posts weekly studio visits with artists. It is a collaboration between myself and my friend Nikki Grattan. Through studio visits with visual artists and designers, we document each artist’s space, process, materials, influences, and the behind-the-scene elements that are often unseen in the finished work. We are based in San Francisco, but growing and branching out quickly. We are just adding a links page and we’d love to link up with you. Also you might be interested in some of the artists we’ve visited.
I really admire your blog, I’ve been following it for quite a while now. I just stumbled across a link you might like: http://www.williamhatchcrosby.com/illustration/legends/ (for some reason or the other I instantly thought about your blog, hope I’m not totally mistaken).
another question: would you mind if I link you? I’d like to let my friends and visitors know where great inspiration can be found.
by the way: I’m really jealous, but keep up the great blog anyway.
Thank goodness for UPPERCASE magazine, where I stumbled upon your site. I’m jealous of your blog concept and happy to turn green with envy scrolling through your posts. May I be so bold as to invite you to check out my hand-cut and layered paper cut patterns?
I Have been visiting your blog for months now and finally had the courage to post…I love you selections! Your “jealousy” inspires me every day, so thank you! I recently included your site in a blog I wrote about for people who are new to the art scene (I included your blog as a site for them to visit), so I hope you don’t mind!
I recently started an organizations called st-ART (Standing together through ART) which curates online exhibits monthly but teams up with local non-profit organizations and raises money for them. I would love it if you checked it out and possibly shared a little link love
Hi! I have been reading your blog for so long. I always find great artists and new ones here that I make sure to keep up with. I work on my own blog called Nicole+Helen, which features a variety of topics including art and travel. I would love it if you would check it out and if you liked mine perhaps we could trade links? Thanks for showing us amazing artists to be jealous of! Happy 4th birthday!!!
But please take a look at the Etsy artist I featured in my post called “illustrator”. I think you’d be jealous of her work. Not typical Etsy work. I love Etsy, but it’s not about cute. I highly believe you’ll be jealous!
Hi, my name is Robin and I am a 3rd year Fine Art Student. I would love it if you would have a look at my work and see what you think as I value your opinion seeing that I love a lot of the artwork that you post!
I’m so happy to have found your site and sense a similar aesthetic … but mostly, it’s the surprises and the eye-openings each time I visit. Thanks for your work, your optimism, and your curiosity. As an artist working toward a significant show of works exploring unchartered territory, I decided to explore blogging, as a way of chronicling the weeks leading up and the work to be done. Interesting what arises and resonates in the process. Thanks for being here!
Her current focus is the Visible Light series, comprised of images created by natural light projected through purified water. Each image represents just a few millimeters of light, substantially enlarged. The works are not color enhanced or manipulated.
I discovered your wonderful site through an article in The Writer magazine and am looking forward to reading your book. Congratulations! I thought you (and your readers) might be interested in an online journal/website I’ve created of in-depth interviews with artists called Constellation617 (http://www.constellation617.com/).
I live in Seattle hope you have a reading or Girl Crush event in here soon!
hola curador celoso , me encanta tu sitio espero puedas ver el mio y te guste mi trabajo un gran saludo desde la Ciudad de México. Victor Galvan

Would you ever consider doing a GIRLCRUSH in Memphis? Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be able to attend something so chic and wonderful. Extremely jealous of all the wonderful activities and art inspired. I could definitely help with setup and decorations, any running around or errands, too! Please think about it!! I know some shops or Barnes & Nobles or something here would be glad to host!
Ijust found you . . . I hope you’re still doing this . . . GREAT IDEA! When I was an art director (Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, etc) I always judged others’ work by whether I wished I had done it . . . same w/photography now. Sorry I missed your NY book signing . . . & the L./A. one too. My book, NY/LA, 40+ years of photographs, will be published later this year.
I recently came across your blog and really enjoy the diverse group of artists you share with the public. I’ve gotten in contact with one artist in particular, thank you for supporting emerging artists and for giving them the opportunity to have some exposure. This site creates a great sense of community. Keep on, keepin’ on…it’s wonderful!
I would love to share my most recent mixed-media installation with you. It’s titled, My First Confession and based on the fact that I lied at my very first confession!
I just wanted to say that I love your blog and have followed it religiously for about two years now. Thank you for taking the time to post about so many contemporary/fascinating artists! I am in art school myself and I have found a lot of inspiration here. If you have the time, my website is angelsilvasy.com.
Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a wonderful job!
I am hoping that you will feature me as an artist on your site. Here is the info about who and what I do. All the best.
Tristesse Seeliger is a Vancouver artist working in mixed media using painting, photocopy transfers, collage, and printmaking. For the past two years she has been working on a body of work focused on geometry, territories, perception and cartography. Using the principles in mathematics of tiling and patterning, the work disassembles and then reassembles maps that focus on the shapes, textures and colour to recreate new territories. These collages are part abstractions part designed object that use universal language to communicate alternate modes of perceiving land and space.
Tristesse Seeliger has been an art teacher for 14 years with the Vancouver School Board, is a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design and a mom of two beautiful children. Tristesse wishes to continue making and creating for her entire life as these two habits are what make life worth living.
