Artist Love

We’d hate to admit that we waste spend ridiculous amounts of time perusing about LiveJournal. It’s hard not to though, especially when a number of artists use it to share behind the scenes work. Not to mention, all the other fun things you can do. Recently we stumbled upon this lovely little meme going around:

We’re all about spreading the love, so we encourage you guys to check out the link and join in. <3

DeviantART Woes

With each passing day, we at Rococo Flow find ourselves more hesitant to visit deviantART. For its humongous size, the front page often leaves a lot to be desired. If we’re lucky, we’ll see one or two pieces worth clicking on. However, it seems as if it’s always the same group of artists who we see over and over. Not that they don’t deserve it, but it’s sad to think of the number of talented artists who get buried beneath all the other ‘junk’. Also, though all the artists we’ve ever talked to are some of the nicest people around, it’s obvious that there tends to be certain tight-knit groups or cliques. It’s just human nature to do such. Only problem is, it can make it hard to branch out if you’re looking for new people based on another artist’s favorites, since it’ll be biased to their preferences.

We’re sure that are plenty of other issues and complaints that people have brought up against deviantART. However, it won’t change the fact that it’s the most popular online gallery with the biggest user base. We surely won’t stop visiting anytime soon, especially with the prospect of finding several online gems.

Pssst: Artists you should already be watching.

We've got so many artists that we absolutely love, it'd be impossible to list them all. However, we thought we'd start by sharing those we feel everyone should already know about. If not, we hope you'll find some new favorites. =)

We'd also love to hear about some of your favorites too. Send us an e-mail!! - The online gallery of Aysha Shehim. Enough said. If you haven't seen her work, then please go to her gallery now because you're definitely missing out!!!

Chira-chira - We've interviewed her before, but who says we can't link to her again? Especially when it seems that she's open for commissions :D

lsvr - Beautiful and delicate works. Definitely needs more love.

wredwrat- So yet another artist we've interviewed. But seriously, her art has gotten even better in the last few months and she's usually open for commissions.

RUFFTOON- The gallery of Johanne Matte. You can also find more work at her deviantART gallery. She's featured in Flight Vol. 2 and 3 and maybe one day we'll be lucky enough to get an interview with her.
