2. The Jealous Curator http://www.thejealouscurator.com/blog/
There is one moment, in the first few seconds, when you look at a piece of art and know that you love it. It’s the moment when, if you’re an artist yourself, you look at it and feel a rush of uplifting inspiration… and total soul-crushing jealousy all at the same time. It’s when you walk away thinking, “Damn, I wish I thought of that.”

4. Doodlers Anonymous http://www.doodlersanonymous.com/
Doodlers Anonymous was founded to celebrate our addiction, and like any other, we’re hooked. The need to draw, sketch, and doodle is constant. We doodle on almost anything we can find — pencil in a moleskine, marker on a napkin, ink on a torn receipt, sharpie on concrete. And we do it habitually — while on hold, in a meeting, during class, or while we should be sleeping.
This is a permanent home for spontaneous art. There’s a blog, interviews, themed-submissions and a lot of amusing thoughts on paper.
5. Crashingly Beautiful http://crashinglybeautiful.tumblr.com/
This is a commonplace book that contains quotes, passages, pictures and music from a variety of sources that I find inspiring and encouraging. ”Art is neither a profession nor a hobby. Art is a way of being.” —Frederick Franck. This blog covers everything from sculpture, to film, to music and more.

9. My Daguerreotype Boyfriend http://mydaguerreotypeboyfriend.tumblr.com/
My Daguerreotype Boyfriend is a Tumblr blog all about attractive men who lived a century ago in the form of antique photos, ca. 1839 – 1910. Most of the photos are submitted by readers who find the good-looking men, often while browsing through (digital) libraries, museums, and old photo albums. The men are often famous–a young author, athlete or president–but there are also anonymous men with brief descriptions, made even more mysterious by their charming, no-teeth-showing 19th-century smiles.
10. Colossal http://www.thisiscolossal.com/
Colossal is edited by Christopher Jobson, a Chicago resident with a highly artistic eye. His blog features the “visual ingenuity” of artists across the globe, making Colossal a one-stop shop for art enthusiasts. And, many of Jobson’s finds are inspired by science and nature. From root sculptures to macro shots of shimmering spiders to the human anatomy constructed from paper or felt, artists featured on Colossal draw inspiration from the world around them.
