Viewer's Choice - Websites

Welcome to the fourth edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. Nearly 150 artists have answered a list of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented as a series of online and print projects. Links to the first three projects (Secret Sunday, The Book Guild, and StudioScapes) can be found on the sidebar of my blog.

Viewer's Choice is the fourth installment. All artists participating in The Pulse were asked to name their favorite from a number of categories. Today's top favorite: websites. Drum roll please...

Top 7 (in random order)

flickr - 'Packed with the most amazing art.'

Scott Radke - 'I love the look of his faces.'

Lynne Perrella - 'My goal is to maintain the same excitement and uncluttered instincts about making art that I felt in childhood.' - from Lynne's artist statement.
