Resources for Young Talent

It’s time to wrap up a lovely week of inspiring youngsters, and I’d like to thank you all (and Grace!) for allowing me to muse for a moment. In closing, I’ve listed a few fantastic resources for uncovering new, young and raw talent. I can pretty much guarantee you’ll find some serious inspiration in the following links, and if not, take a cue from this week’s talent and create your own!

Happy weekend, spongies — thanks for having me! Feel free to visit me anytime on Design for Mankind for more fresh talent from unknown artists.

  1. Oh I will check out the Flickr site ASAP.

    Please stop by and see my Anthropologie inspired tree topper that I glue gunned to glory.

  2. Jane says:

    thanks for sharing* the young designer’s guide is fantastic!

  3. Sophie S says:

    It’s so great that the internet now allows artistic teenagers to find each other and get their work out there. I’m only in my thirties but things seemed so different fifteen years ago…

  4. Owen says:

    Wonderful! the internet has helped so many aspiring young artists get there work out there. Flickr is great!

    Being a young artist myself, I find these links particularly inspiring. I’m an 18 year old lad, and I love drawing
