Artist Resource Links A list of useful links for artists


Hello! These are links and resources for all kinds of artists that I've been saving over the years. Most of this has been incredibly useful info in my journey as an artist so I've compiled them all together in case anyone else would find any of this to be helpful. Feel free to take a look and share with others! If you have anything you'd like me to add feel free to DM me on Twitter. I'll continue to update this spreadsheet as I find new things as well! Enjoy!
