Reminder of our rules for new users! While we allow NSFW (not-safe-for-work) and nude art to be posted, we do have conditions, as stated in our instance code of conduct that I'm sure everyone has read before joining :P

At the very least, NSFW content must be hidden behind a content warning/media marked as sensitive, *and tagged appropriately*, and some cases call for the art to be posted as unlisted.

"The David Rumsey Map Collection was started over 30 years ago and contains more than 150,000 maps. The collection focuses on rare 16th through 21st century maps of North and South America, as well as maps of the World, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Oceania."

Some of these maps are in the public domain - see for more info.

"Multicolor illustrations of animals and sea creatures from Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature) by German zoologist, naturalist, professor, and marine biologist, Ernst Haeckel (1843–1919), in full Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckela. Haeckel was known for discovering and naming thousands of new species. Kunstformen der Natur was known for bridging the gap between science and art."

Via , these images are all in the public domain!

Not sure this'll work, but let's see :) art remix 'event'?

Create a flower (flat, top-down, 2D style, like this> 🌸 ) using the palette below. Make it as simple or complicated as you like, let's say 500px square? Post your flower with the hashtag, and then people can browse the flowers and use them to remix into their own art which they then share back :D

How does that sound? Thought it might be something small and bright and colourful we can participate in :)

So much fantastic art coming across my feed this morning! I can barely keep up :D I've bookmarked a lot of it to boost out throughout the day, so keep an eye :D

Meanwhile, here's some for you to practice with! Enjoy ^.^


Paint over time! What do you see in these images? Choose one or both of them, part of the image or all of the image, and paint what you see :D

Some fun art from The Met to round off the evening! Details in the image descriptions :D
