Artist is, of course, a very open title. Over 22,000 about.me users have tagged themselves as artists but we’ve narrowed it down to just a few of them who use their pages in particularly unique and interesting ways. They’re illustrators, sculptors, painters and everything in between and we had an amazing time exploring their pages. We hope it’s just as fun for you.
In our header we have Greg Mike, who lists himself as ARTIST / DESIGNER / MADMAN and works in a variety of mediums. His art is displayed in galleries across the U.S. and aside from seeing it in his background picture, you can check out more of his work on his beautiful website which he links to from his about.me page.
