I’ve decided to start a series of posts where I can share awesome people and things I find around the web. There’s so many people doing amazing things!
I thought about making these themed but decided that’d be a bit much, so these posts will be completely random. The only thing in common all of the Around The Web posts will have in common is that they’re full of fun things that caught my attention. And without further ado, the first Around The Web post:
Cheap Paper Art is the website of artist Kelli Nelson. Above is an example of one of her prints, which I’ve seen in person and is as beautiful in its physical form as it is on your computer screen. The thing about Kelli is that I just love her style of artwork no matter what the subject matter is. It’s always fun and interesting to see what she’s working on next. She’s covered the geeky (Skeletor anyone?) to the intensely personal (The Egoist, the story of her parent’s divorce hearing) and all of it in her own unique style.
Full disclosure, Kelli is actually a friend of mine. She’s the reason I attended San Diego Comic Con, helping out at her booth a couple of years. She’s a pretty awesome person and a wonderful artist and if you have the time you should totally check out her work and make a stop at her store.
Plume is a beautiful and fun comic and the creation of K. Lynn Smith. I love the entire thing, from the art work to the characters to the story. Taken from the website:
Plume is a story set in the Old West about a girl named Vesper Grey and her supernatural companion, Corrick. On their quest to recover her father’s life work, they encounter new friends and new foes, and learn that the Wild West really does live up to its name.
If you enjoy stories with strong female leads, supernatural elements, humor, adventure, the Wild West, mystery, or beautiful artwork I really super highly suggest you check it out. Start from the very beginning, it’s a very good place to start.
And if you find that you love Plume as much as I have, there’s currently a Kickstarter drive to help print a 5-issue miniseries. You can pledge and receive rewards and be able to hold copies of Plume right in your happy little hands!
BlogLabs was created to bring bloggers together. It’s a place where you can find new bloggers to read, post your own entries, link to your own website, and be part of a happy blogging community.
You can Blog, Vlog, write reviews, share views, submit fiction, non fiction. Anything you like really! The purpose of blaglabs is to simply share your thoughts with other bloggers & writers.
It’s a little start-up website by Brad, a fellow geek who decided to jump into the blogging world. But it’s not just about blogging and sharing articles, it’s about being a community. You can private message other members, chat on the forums, and create friends. It’s a really neat idea to not only hopefully gain more readers on your own blog, but to make new friends in the blogging world.
And that’s a wrap for the first ever Around The Web post. Hope you enjoyed – and feel free to share any nifty sites you’ve found around the web in the comments!
