5 Subscribe-Worthy Artist Blogs

September 14, 2009

My plan for today was to do an ear tutorial, but alas I ran out of daylight before I could finish (daylight being necessary for the documentation of the drawing process). I have to apologize for my recent lack of meaty posts. I’ve just started back at work after having two months off and I’m re-adjusting to my new schedule. Add to that planning a surpirse birthday party for my other half and suddenly it’s that much harder to find time to paint and blog and everything else!

In leiu of the ear tutorial, I bring you a list of five bloggers that I follow!

One of the advantages of this kind of blog that I didn’t expect has been the network of other artist bloggers I’ve found. The internet is full of artists sharing their ideas, their techniques, their troubles and challenges. Here are a few art blogs that I have come to know and love, and I hope you will too!

Don’t forget to check out 5 MORE Subscribe-Worthy Artist Blogs.

Stan Prokopenko’s Blog

I’ve referred to Stan’s blog several times before, and it’s worth another mention! This site has some excellent tutorials on how to draw facial features, as well as information on painting and basic studio practices. Not to mention, Stan has also figured out a way to make a professional portfolio for ten dollars!


The Art News Blog

This blog has been in operation for five years now and it’s a perfect place to go for recent art headlines and some accompanying conversation. Although the updates have been somewhat infrequent lately, this one is worth a mention for the interesting commentary on contemporary art.

    I completely understand about being able to get to blogging lately. I think you are among good company as I have noticed bloggers are really focused on some studio work. My desire is the economy is about to break and artists are preparing for the joy! 🙂 The thing is take your time, because the best work comes out of absorbing all you need when the opportunities arise. Good luck with your adventure back to working full time. That is a challenge to be sure.
