My favorite today (yes, I'm juvenile).

Wow, that is nice. He's got a real sense of line wieght (something that's always given me trouble), and his drafting is solid, especially cross-hatching. Good stuff.

No fair. All I can draw is a bath.

I don't understand how to make things appear. When I click on links, all I get are words and squares. Am I supposed to click the squares for every image I want to see?

Trouble? I can't even spell line weight!

It's a lovely site but you may have to view it in Firefox or IE to see the great pictures. On Safari they're smushed over on the right hand side. Thanks for posting this.

I looked through this site yesterday and thought it was great! Nice post.

Generally, artistic nudes are considered SFW. They are not porn. Unless your work place considers art to be dangerous. In which case you have bigger problems when you consider "NSFW" artwork hangs in public museums and public buildings all over the nation. (sometimes I think people put "NSFW" to draw more attention).

stbalbach: Your point is correct in theory, but it doesn't work in practice. If someone passing by my office sees boobies on my monitor, they aren't going to assess whether they are artistic boobies, they are just going to shake their heads and tell everyone I am a pervert. delmoi's warning is appropriate.

jacquilynne, the site's a bit of a mess. The images are on the FAR right (to the right of the nav), yet there are no horizontal scrollbars so the only way to see them is to have a huge monitor and open the browser all the way. I'm on a 20" widescreen monitor and they just fit on my screen. I'm on Safari. Presumably it doesn't work this way on some other browsers.

Yep, this site is well stuffed on Safari.

Thumbnails on the far right look good on preview.

Well that's it, I will never draw again.

Yeah, nice stuff. Tell the man/woman that he/she needs to fix that damn site for us Safari-using saps, though.

Our own Jay.Jansheski has a cool art site, too. (Say hey to Lynn for me, Mr. Chessking!)

I'm pretty sure I like every one of those images. Awesome.

I think I stared at the cigarette for a solid 5 minutes.

Holy shit.

Yeah awesome stuff. Wish I could draw /snif

Really great work. This is going to send me to my sketch pad where I will try to draw something - anything - for five minutes before giving up in frustration.

Good work. The Zombie Willem Dafoe was my favourite, for pure uncanniness.

safari folks - sorry! :( i don't have a mac, or even access to one. im working on a barebones list of links to art just for you guys. Im not giving you the finger - i swear.

How much do you charge for web design, by the way?

because someone has to say it: meh.
