Joseph Vorgity is a contemporary realist watercolorist and printmaker. He makes beautiful woodblock prints influencedby the American Precisionist Movement, the Arts and Craft Movement, and Japonisme. He was using one of our older templates, which wasn’t mobile-friendly and didn’t take advantage of our new fonts.
Laurinda Stockwell was using one of our oldest templates, which was not mobile-friendly and didn’t show off her intriguing work as well as it could have. Her work is so immediate and strong that it didn’t require too many bells and whistles, but I wanted a color that complemented it rather than detracted from it. Her work deals with a lot of natural subjects and features a lot of greens and blues, so I ended up with this sort of burlap-and-linen combination that I hope is elegant without calling too much attention to itself. I chose one of our newer fonts for the name of her site, and made it much bigger. I also added a home page to her site, choosing an image that seems to invite the viewer into the site.
Artspan photographer Katherine Minott recently had her beautiful photograph Naked Summer chosen for the cover of Sun Magazine. Inspired by her success, we’ve decided to put together a list of ten magazines that accept submissions of photography and art. See if you can find one that’s a fit for your work! If you have any recommendations for magazines to submit to, share in the comments.
A few weeks ago we published a post listing sites that will share a photo and a link of your artwork. Many of our Artspan members also make jewelry, textiles, and decorative arts, so we assembled a list of sites that will accept jewelry, wearables, and other handmade items. If you can think of any that we should add, let us know!
A great way to attract traffic to your Artspan site is to submit your work to various design blogs and online galleries. Submission takes only a few minutes, and you can submit an image and a link to your Artspan site. Here’s a list of ten sites that feature various types of art in different mediums, but there are many others. Find one that’s right for your work!
