I'm Jade, and this is my inspiration/art promotion blog. I post things that inspire me, and sometimes things that I or my friends make that need the extra push. Expect to see lots of great painting, photography, illustration; just generally visual arts of all kinds! Also resources and reference posts that I find useful.

I always try to source art that I post here, but I fail sometimes. If I ever post something with a missing/incorrect source, please drop me an ask. Same goes for tagging triggers, or even just asking me how my day is. It's always open! :)

HNNNNNGGGGGH.  Only thing I’m bummed about is that Moore and Gibbons aren’t doing them.  But hey, can’t win them all, right?
