Since It Is Artist Appreciation Day

Celebrating Taradays is fun and easy! Since today is Artist Appreciation Day I want to:

First, commend the various blogging artists of all sorts that I have "met", including, but not limited to Tara and Furtive Wangler over at Dinkums and Doodles (how about some updates, kids?), Sebastien of Chronically Sick But Still Thinking, I Think, the twoferly talented BabyBull at Live Life, Love Life (part II)(do you still have your poetry blog, BB?), and blogging brothers Evil-E and Alien CG at Random Crap and Alien's Planet, respectively. You know the fact is that if you look at my blogroll ovah theah, you could call all of them artists of one sort or another! Isn't blogging an art? I say yes.
So many artists, so little time!

Second, post a picture from one of my favorite artists...and here it is...

Ah, Edward Gorey. His drawings are dark, but delicate.

So, here's to you blogger artists and Edward Gorey! Artists rule!

I like Edward's work, dark is a great quality. It is too easy to be cheery and bright.

Thanks for the shout out....

Evil-E: I like the darkside best when it teases the lightside, as Gorey does.

BabyBull: Being a poet, photographer, and blogger you are definitely an artist too!

Churlita: Every child should read "Cautionary Tales for Children" written by Hillaire Belloc and illustrated by Gorey. Teach them a thing or two...

MrManuel: Yeah! Right now I am using it as my wallpaper.
