28 Recommended Art and Design Tumblrs

I Heart My Art

Tumblr has quickly become the ideal platform for crowd-sourcing art on the web. I have chosen 28 Tumblrs that range from contemporary, modern, and classical art; vintage illustration; vintage photography; design and typography. Each of these Tumblrs has its own spectacular character. I owe a debt of gratitude to these sites for providing me with inspiration daily.

    Peter, I love your Tumblr and you know I’ve listed “this isn’t happiness” before . . . but this list is more focused on art. While you post some art, your main focus is vintage pop culture. So it’s slightly different. Don’t be offended.
