2014 has been an exciting year for Bleaq! I’ve been able to feature a lot of fantastic, talented artists, welcomed more visitors every week and awarded the site with a complete make-over: not once, but twice!
In February I launched Bleaq 2.0: a whole new look for both the website and the branding. And, because it’s hard to be completely satisfied with an hobby so close to you, a few weeks ago Bleaq upgraded to version 3.0: an even more flexible and versatile version.
A lot of people found Bleaq this year: welcome new readers! For those of you who might missed a couple of month, and all of you who are excited to see some great art again I want to feature the most popular artists features of the year. So here they are, in no particular order: the top 20 artist features of 2014. Enjoy!
