As has been noted by many--and, hey, why not say again, huh?--the digital threads of the capitalized Web are so countless and convoluted it's a bona fide wonder our brains don't explode from all the twists and turns we experience each day. Because of these crazy zigs and zags, it's easy to be wholly unaware of the virtual presence of artists whose work we may actually like/love.
As a public service, we've decided to nudge your clicker to the sites of four highly talented artists who live and work in Miltown but may have managed to stay off your radar. Ready? Set? Go!
1. Bill Zuback--who we've blogged up several times 'cause both he and his work couldn't be more worthy--launched a new site and blog focused on his fine art photography nearly a year ago. Yeah, yeah, I know I've been kinda sleepy, but better late than yada yada. And, just like Bill, his site is nothin' but class.
2. Philip Atilano--fine and commercial artist/human being extraordinaire--has a boatload of his work up for your peepers to view and noodle to absorb. Word has it he'll be updating it soon, so get on over there before the shift and then go back to see what's new. (UPDATE: Sorry, kids, it appears Philip's site has been taken down.)
3. George Jirasek--our good bud for many moons and a video/photography artist so at home in the digital realm he may soon physically disappear--has a veritable visual smorgasbord on Vimeo. Only one video is public, so if you haven't yet succumbed to the join-Vimeo-or-stay-a-total-loser peer pressure here's your reason to join. Also, we heartily encourage you to become an avid follower of George on The Twitter so you may get some fun learnin' about cool stuff-n-junk.
4. Jamie Bilgo--a very fine painter/printmaker whose youth only means we have many decades before us to enjoy her work--has got herself a site that is both graceful and well-designed, matching the temperament and tone of her work perfectly.
Okay, so there they are, peeps. Now get clickin'!
