Where do people go for art online these days? It pops up every now and then on Facebook and my own trail is littered with sites that took off, failed to launch or slowly faded away. DevArt, Art Majeur, Flickr, Artspots/Jaxpad, ArtWanted, Wet Canvas...what's an artist to do? Flock to Tumblr? Facebook? LJ even had/has a good share of art communities too. I'm glad it's not just me thinking about it :-)
