Why do people start adding others to their circles before they have filled in their profiles or even started posting? I actually look at these things to determine if I want to add them back. If I don't know anything about you, why would I want to add you? It puzzles me...

Note: If you're going to add yourself to the list please use the SHARE link at the bottom of this post and make it PUBLIC so more people will see it. Thank you.

--------------------------------------

I feel bad that I could not update my original list with all you lovely artists so I thought it would be great to start afresh and do this thing properly. So, for all you arty people out there I'm going to try and create a database of G+ artists, with your help.

ARTISTS, ADD YOUR INFO HERE: http://lqf.me/artform
VIEW THE DATABASE HERE: http://lqf.me/gpartists

To find out your G+ URL (the address that links to your G+ page), simply click on your name (top left of your stream, next to your profile picture) and copy the link from your address bar. It should look something like this (this is mine): https://plus.google.com/109817489744930804252/ The big number at the end is the important part, it's your unique Google+ ID. Make sure it is correct!

TIP: You may want to use http://gplus.to to create a shorter, more relevant link to your G+ account, for example I used http://gplus.to/liquidfire for mine. You could try and nab your real name if it hasn't already been taken! Please note: gplus.to is not a Google product. Alternately, you could use a link shortening service like http://goo.gl or http://bit.ly .

--------------------------------------

I shamelessly stole this idea from +David Snuckel who created an incredible G+ Photographers database. Check that out below:
Photography Form: http://lqf.me/photoform
Photography DB: http://lqf.me/gpphoto

--------------------------------------

Update 1: I've been looking through the list (thank you to anyone who contributed), BUT is there really any point adding your info on there if you aren't sharing/posting or generally using Google plus? Please remember that if you aren't making your posts 'public' none of us will be able to see them.

Update 2: I'd really prefer to keep this list for VISUAL artists. If you are a Musician, or a Writer I can help you setup your own form/database if you'd like.

Update 3: Added some info regarding G+ URL links.

Update 4: Thank you everyone who has contributed and shared this post. Just a quick edit to say we've teamed up with +Daniel Treadwell, the guy behind the fantastic group.as site. He's imported this list into his website and now everyone who submitted their info has been automatically featured under the group.as/Artist section! It serves the same purpose, but looks tons better. Daniel is looking for feedback concerning the site and he'd love to hear what you think. Make sure you send him any feedback or feature requests.

--------------------------------------

I hope that you have all gained many new followers and discovered many more inspirational artists as part of this list. Here's to many more in the future! Long live Google+!

I have changed the settings now on mine. I think it's a good idea for artists who are uploading pics of their work there now!
VERY IMPORTANT!! Artists and photographers. Make sure you set your privacy settings within Google Photos (ie. Picasa) to keep people from ordering prints of your images or downloading you images.
1. Click on Photos at the very top in the black nav bar.
2. Little Gear in the far right very top corner is your settings link for whichever aspect of G+ you are in.
3. Photo Settings > Privacy and Permissions
4. Unclick Order Prints and Download my Photos
5. Save Changes.

Seriously. Do this. It defaults to letting people download.
