Art Meme blogs (‘Thursday’ & ‘Friday’)

Here are two art "meme" blogs, i.e. where new themes are posted each week and anyone can submit links (to their blog posts or flickr accounts etc.) to the site. Such "meme" sites are excellent ways to introduce your art and to know other like-minded people.

This one's called "Inspire Me Thursday" by Melanie and Misty (they have a very nice banner):

inspire-me-thursday2A weekly dose of inspiration to be creative, try new techniques and explore new mediums. We challenge all artists to get out their art supplies, experiment and CREATE!

How to Participate:

  • Create a new piece of art (no old work please) inspired by the current week's challenge.
  • Post your interpretation of the current challenge on your blog.
  • Leave a comment on our site with your link to let us know your artwork has been posted.

This one's called Illustration Friday:

Illustration Friday - BannerIllustration Friday is meant to challenge participants creatively. We believe that every person has a little creative bone in their body. Illustration Friday just gives a no-pressure, fun excuse to use it. No clients looking for a particular thing. No one judging the outcome of the work. It’s a chance to experiment and explore and play with visual art.

Will we see Art Meme blogs for all seven days? Who knows : ) Anyway, check out those two sites. If you draw or doodle, just go ahead and submit your links. Nevermind if you’re professional or amateur. Join in the online art community and you might learn something. I certainly did.
