Top 20 artist features of 2015

It’s starting to get old (I say this every year and every Bleaq-anniversary) but this year has been great for Bleaq. I never thought the small little art-blog I started in 2012 would turn into something much bigger, having thousands of readers and helping me meet creative, like-minded people from all over the world. Some of you might not know that Bleaq is just a one-man-show (or rather, one-woman), and sometimes it’s not easy to maintain the website next to my full-time design job and other hobbies. Yet every time I get a thank-you-mail from a reader, a tweet from an enthusiastic follower or have a conversation with an artist that already knows (and loves!) the website I know what I’m doing this for: to inspire myself, and to inspire others. Of course it would be less fun without all of you, so thank you once again for sticking around this year :)

Today I want to look back at all the fantastic art I got to discover in 2015! With a little help from the statistics I created a list of the 20 most read articles this year. I created a similar list last year, and once again enjoyed browsing through the archive and putting it together. So without further ado: the 20 most read Bleaq articles from the past year, in no particular order. Enjoy!
