Hi, my name is _________. I'm an artist living and working in San Francisco, California. What's posted here, you may ask? I don't know anymore — it seems to be an amalgamation of my own thoughts and writings and reblogging things that inspire me to keep trudging forward through the void. I generally also like to post artwork by me and other people.
Enjoy your stay!

Here’s a handy dandy color reference chart for you artists, writers, or any one else who needs it! Inspired by this post x

I don’t need to know any of this (Oh I really need to mix this into a more “russet brown” has never occurred to me, I just see a color and make it)

BUT it looks super awesome and I love names of colors ^_^

So there.

Update: The #Artists on Tumblr List is up to 629 artists!!!


Please make sure to like and reblog in order to support the newest artists.

Happy Friday or Saturday everyone! Here is are the newest additions to my #artists on tumblr list! Even better news - I got into the honours program at my University, which means I will be writing a final thesis on how globalization has influenced art and artistic processes aka the Social Art Movement (narrowed down of course GAH!). 

As part of the program I have to have a “Summer Reading List” that supports my research, which I will most likely be sharing with you guys as I move forward. I hope to use DearMirah as a resource for my project as well… but I’ll save that for another post :) 

Here is the first reading: 
Art After Social Media by Brad Troemel 

 Criteria for making the list

- your art was easy to find when I went on your blog
- it was made clear through your ‘about’ page that you were an artist 
- you post YOUR art on tumblr 

If you are not on this list it is because I could not determine if you were just an art blog, and most importantly, I could not find your art. Please feel free to send me a message if you want to be on the list, as it will be featured on my page and will remain current. All artists featured on this list are primarily active on their blog. 

There is a range of artists listed, and the mediums include: painting, collage, mixed, photography, illustration, design, gif, sculpture and drawing.

CHECK THIS OUT! dear-mirah does an excellent job with this list, and there are SO MANY amazing artists on there.

He told me he was an artist.
I asked what kind of art he made.
He said: “I do my own thing.”
I said: “What’s your thing?”
He said: “Doing my thing.”

As I was walking away, his wife gave me his name. “Look him up,” she said. So I did.


"Andres Serrano (born August 15, 1950 in New York City) is an American photographer and artist who has become notorious through his photos of corpses and his use of feces and bodily fluids in his work, notably his controversial work "Piss Christ", a red-tinged photograph of a crucifix submerged in a glass container of what was purported to be the artist’s own urine." -Wikipedia

Rock Bar

What’s it called and where is it?

It is a bar and it is located in San Francisco. The bar program is directed by artist and curator Brion Nuda Rosch.

Who goes there?

Neighbors & Intellectuals. Artists and Non-Artists

How does it work?

It’s a bar. It works like a bar. You stop by for a drink. You talk. You play songs from the Aquarius Records curated jukebox. You talk more. You watch films played silently on Wednesdays. You put peanut butter on your ankles and Jaws I, II, III, & IV are playing on the flat screen TVs, the sound when Jaws is about to attack is heard and the neighbor’s dog licks your ankle, you jump from your seat and spill your properly made Old Fashioned. You are part of a happening.

Why is it important?

Because talking about art with only artists is boring. And experiencing art only in art spaces is also boring. A place to meet and gather. A place for a happening.

Art + discussion + cocktails + silent films + vinyl + live music. This sounds like the ultimate plan! Thanks for sharing your Art MicroHub with us, Brion Nuda Rosch :)

As a SF based artist — I’m glad they posted this; I plan on checking it out soon! SOUNDS AWESOME.

But I who have not a penny still say in this matter that money is one kind of coin and painting another.

There is no bridge between obscurity and success; the artist works away neglected or amidst the crowd’s acclaim. You need luck to make the leap and strength to avoid disaster

Had the amazing opportunity to visit his studio and talk to him for a while. He couldn’t have been a more genuine guy, very open in his views, a sly witty humor that left you wondering if what he said was serious or if he was just messing with you. If you have the chance to see his work in person, do it!
