Google+, the search giant's social network, has its sights trained on a new target: Pinterest.

Google on Monday announced a Google+ feature called Collections, which lets users post pictures, articles and other content related to a specific topic, like food, movies or space. Other people can follow users' collections, and decide who sees them.

Even though some photographs have fetched more than $1 million at auction, the medium of photography still represents a tiny fragment of the global art market.

A Peek into the Brush Workshop
Here's a sketch using a brush Im working on. I'm enjoying this one a lot, but I'm just trying to get the medium texture right before I release it to the shop. The brush behaves like an oil paint or pastel, but the low end range acts more like a watercolour.

Although it's all digital, and real world rules can be ignored, if a brush has relatively close equivalents in real natural media it's a bit jarring when it veers off into other media too quickly. It can be a bit too dissonant, like awkward notes or unusual timing in music. When it's off enough though, and the look you are going for bears little to no resemblance to anything in the real world, there is a lot of room for digital brushes to be as quirky as you want them to be.

Report shows Arts and culture accounted for nearly $700 Billion is the U.S.  Many of us are content to create for the intrinsic value alone of our art, however it is good to see it coupled with the real dollar impact as well!  
#art   #business   #economy  
The arts-and-culture sector of the economy that includes broadcasting, film and publishing industries contributed $698.7 billion to the U.S. economy in 2012, according to a federal report released Monday.

The art world has a public relations problem. Every time a story emerges of billionaires engaging in secretive deals, a phalanx of commentators conflate facts to invent a narrative of cultural malfeasance. The latest is this Bloomberg View story that mashes up some half facts into a theory that say concludes, “the legitimate art market increasingly resembles the underground one for stolen paintings.”

The Arts sector is one of the few in the U.S. that has a trade surplus.  We export more art and culture than we import, greatly benefiting U.S. trade.

As artists, we understand the intrinsic value of so many things, yet it is nice to see the physical dollar side greatly in our favor as well! Congratulations to all artists and those who support them!

The article below is a couple of years old, however the most recent estimate is that the arts contributed close to $700 Billion to the U.S. economy!
Starving artists? Not quite. America’s arts and cultural sector is a half-trillion-dollar machine that’s larger than major industries such as travel and tourism, a new official estimate found.
