As part of the SF Signal year end round up of The Best Genre-Related Books/Films/Shows Consumed in 2008, illustrator Dan Dos Santos has posted his Top 10 SF/F Art Websites of 2008, in which he was kind enough to list Lines and Colors (thanks, Dan).
The list includes some sites I’ve specifically written posts about, including Gorilla Artfare and the amazing Tor.com site (with its SF/F art gallery); as well as many that I’ve linked to in the course of posts about various artists.
It prominently mentions the always fascinating Gurney Journey, which is where I found out about the list. (Gurney’s blog had gone way beyond its original premise and has become a combination of art travelogue, insightful looks at art history and one of the best art instructional sites on the web.)
Of course, Dos Santos’ list also gives me a great excuse to post more of his own terrific artwork (above). When visiting his site, don’t miss the Wallpapers section of his gallery, where you can see a few detail crops from his images in high enough resolution to see his brushwork (image above, bottom).
