Check out this group


I get a lot of motivation and inspiration from other blogs, groups and forums. Although I think that maybe I spend too much time doing so, it beats watching TV. Here are a few of the places I visit. I have to admit though, that I lurk, as I am trying to limit my involvement. I don't visit every day either, but when I do, I always learn something valuable.

The above group is great because it's all about making it as an artist. They don't discuss the artwork, but how to promote and market the art

.

This is another group and it's all about licensing art work. You will learn a lot by looking through the archives. (I just found some messages I left from 2003!)



I just discovered this site...http://www.ideabook.com/..It's all about desk top publishing and has great information if you want to make a living doing graphics. The links page alone is worth the visit.

This site,,http://www.dafont.com/..is wonderful. It has a great variety of fonts that are free. I love collecting fonts and this is the first place I go to when I need something new and free!


My instructor just told me about a motivational site, called ted.com..(http://www.ted.com/index.php)..The tag line is Ideas worth spreading. You can listen to motivational speakers for free (they offer 200 talks in their archives).

Finally, here's a site you may never want to leave. It's called Colour Lovers, http://www.colourlovers.com/

It is a color and design community that is a visual treat. There are color swatches, patterns, different palettes, and a color blog. You can find the latest trends in colors (this fascinates me as I often wonder, Who decides?).

Hope you enjoy these sites as much as I do.

Thanks, I just visited your blog..very nice. I love to travel, but am afraid to fly. So everywhere I go has to be by train or car. Some of the places you've been are amazing!
