The Top Five Online Art Galleries

The Top Five Online Art Galleries

Pushing your artwork on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter can be a daunting task. It takes a whole lot of time, commitment, studying and networking until you get to see your Facebook Art Page pay off. Similarly, on Twitter, you will have to have established a good base of followers until your artwork will get noticed. This can be pretty frustrating for an artist who would much rather spend their time creating, rather than trying to determine the best hours to post on Facebook or Twitter.

Spare yourself time, energy and possibly money, by finding a platform that specializes in art and art only. By exhibiting your artwork on a platform that targets only artists and those looking to purchase unique paintings, drawings, mixed media collages etc., you will attract the audience you want without having to spend too much time figuring out ways to gain more exposure.

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
