I wanted to thank all you Tumblerers for following my little blog here, and apologize for not following all of you back.  To keep things simple, I only follow those who post a lot of art that is similar to what I post here.  If I followed everyone, I’d likely explode!

Luv, Samantha

The internet has created more opportunities for artists than ever before.  It has also caused much upset.  Change, especially that which hits quick and hard, is hard to adjust to, and the internet is creating change constantly.

An artist works very hard to create their art.  

After they post an image of their art on the web, it’s wonderful when someone sees it, falls in love with it and shows it to others.  

When that reposting does not list the artist, the artist becomes disconnected from their art that they worked so hard to create.

This can be tragic.  The artist loses potential employers and loses the kudos that would encourage and feed him.

Please credit the artist when you post art, photography, poetry, video, etc. on Tumblr.  

Don’t know who created the art you want to post?  Try searching on Tineye.com.  Still can’t find the artist?  Indicate that in your post.

Search for the artist of an image: Tineye.com

To my sweet, sweet artists:  If you see me posting something sans credit, please tell me.  I can take what I dish out.  Really, I’ve probably just spaced and need my error pointed out to me.  In fact, I’d really appreciate it!

James Elliott Moore / Illustrator, Painter, Sculptor, Installation artist / 2010 


Moore’s greatest talent is his ability to portray a truth that resonates like piano keys struck with blunt force. His work is fierce and unrelenting, barely leaving space to breath. It is impulse and passion, never pausing to look back, nor heading the future. It pulses with the power of the moment, as he forces the uncertainty and turmoil roiling within his subjects to literally burst from within. 


He is a clairvoyant among us. Yet he does not see auras of ethereal wispy colors, but instead he envisions gurgling mucous, severed fingers, crumpled metal and dirty socks. 

Please follow the jump for more artwork, an interview, and information about his current show opening Feb 4th in NYC.

Heather Gargon / Puppeteer, Installation Artist, Illustrator / 2010

Gargon’s vast assortment of works include melancholy illustrations, youthfully designed puppets and cleverly imagineered installations. Her whimsical creatures could easily be understood by any child’s open mind, but Gargon is on a relentless mission to reach the youthful heart that beats in every adult.

Buddy Nestor / 2010


Nestor’s series of paintings titled “Every Girl Goes to Hell” are brazen evocations of the roiling darkness within his subjects. Their superficial personas are fearlessly striped away as he beckons their deepest sorrows, dread and malcontent to pour forth.

“The war of art is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected”
