It’s truly amazing that we get to wake up everyday, look at our messages on Tumblr, and see this wealth of unpublished art. The quality of the artwork submitted is incredible.

 We’re honored and humbled to be nominated.

Special thanks to Tony, Sarah, & Lauren.

And of course for all those that nominated us, we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so much.

Introducing: Art Snacks.

Art Snacks is a brand new service that offers artists, interested individuals or creatives of any type a monthly shipment of surprise art supplies:

“Art Snacks is a monthly serving of the best art supplies.  Every month we deliver 4-5 full size art products right to your doorstep.”

I was lucky enough to be sent the first month’s serving and I have to say it was incredibly exciting having it arrive and opening the box to find all kinds of new art supplies to play with.  It was like Christmas or a birthday!  The idea of it coming every month is very exciting.  Along with my new art supplies I was given a very cool Art Snacks sticker and also a card explaining all the new art supplies and their purposes.  There was even CANDY.

Art Snacks seems like the start of something really cool for creatives.  If you’re interested in it more you can check out all the details over at Art Snacks.

“EatSleepDraw could be considered the Museum of Modern Art of the Internet, a highly selective gallery where only the best art is displayed for the world to admire. Its director, Lee Rubenstein, however, might not have come up with the idea for the Tumblr blog if it weren’t for a chance encounter.” (continued)

Blogs We Like: Eat, Sleep, Draw

Ranging from 8-bit digital illustration to simple B&W portraits, Eat, Sleep, Draw is among the very best user-submitted art blogs on Tumblr. Co-founded by Lee Rubenstein and Ben Ross in late 2007, ESD has evolved into “a finely curated art gallery” with its own gift shop and ever-changing line of sketch books. It’s one of the few truly high-quality curated art Tumblrs that manages to remain inclusive and unpretentious, showcasing new and budding artists alongside professional animators and illustrators.

Eat, Sleep, Draw’s consistent quality is a direct result of its Herculean editor Tony Lamberty, who manages to comb through “over a thousand pieces of artwork” weekly for the site. ESD also uses our very own Carlo Franco’s Effector theme, which I can verify—sitting next to him as I type this—makes him smile. Be sure to follow ESD and, if you’re an artist, consider becoming a member to help their noble cause.
