Blog Award - Arte y Pico

Many thanks to Glendon Mellow of the Flying Trilobite, who has given me the Arte y Pico blog award! I am especially honored as he has a huge blog list. Here's how the award works:
  1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for creativity, design, interesting material, and contributions to the blogger community, regardless of language.
  2. Create a post showing your choices of award winners. Include the name of the winning blog and a link to that blog, to be visited by everyone.
  3. Each award winning blog, has to show the award and put the name and link back to the blog that has given her or him the award.
  4. Each Award winning blog and the one who has given the prize should show this link: “Arte y Pico“ showing the origin of this award. (The original blog originates from Uruguay. Here is a translation of the Arte y Pico blog.)
  5. Show these rules.

It was hard to get five picks, mostly because I don't usually read blogs other than the one that gave me the award! So I did some research, and here is my list of five of the best artist bloggers, in no particular order.

OnlyPencil. Lissandro Pena is a master of the pencil, creating incredible photorealistic animals, detailed tutorials and time-lapse demonstration videos.

A-Zoo. Lene Daugaard is another amazing realistic animal artist. She works in graphite and colored pencil with both domestic and wild animals.

WildlifeArt. Jason Morgan paints large scenes of wildlife in their natural habitats. Take a look at his works in progress, in particular the current one with zebras and wildebeests.

ArtDogBlog. Rebecca Collins is an animal artist specializing in dog portraits. Her paintings are vibrant and full of life, and she keeps her blog fresh with new posts almost daily.

ArtMentor. This is the only blog I picked not dedicated exclusively to drawing or painting, but also to the business of art. Wendy Froshay shares a plethora of tips for marketing and promoting your work after having been in the business for over 20 years, in addition to drawing and painting tips and book and product reviews.

Heather,

Thanks for the Award. What an honor!

I've actually just launched the blog anew under the url http://www.TheArtMentor.com. This site has even more information, including tips on drawing and painting, free stuff (links to helpful artist sites), art book reviews and more. I'll be continuing to grow this new site and have transferred all of the information from the old site, to it.

Thank you again so very much for the kudos!
