Internet = Free
Currency = Page visits, Links, Comments
Often people who are interested in the arts and not necessarily practicing artists themselves don't realise the potential they have to support artist and the work they do, and how much this means to people who are putting themselves out there.
If you like an artist,
- Visit their site regularly; or subscribe through RSS
- Leave comments on their site or reply to their tweets
- Tell others by sharing links to the artist's website
- Purchase merchandise or donate to support their craft
Some of my favourite blogs simply just talk about other peoples art and link to interesting sites.
