ARTISTS & REFERENCE

i know theres a ton of artists and aesthetic threads around here, and im looking fr inspiration. been going back through my harddrive looking at all the art ive ever saved ( a thing im glad i deleted) and trying to re-connect with art in the first place during these Quarantine Times

so i wuz curious, what SBers got kicking around on their harddrives that they repeatedly find themselves referencing or just staring at
this is not an aesthetic place, fuk u

Not really from my local storage so maybe cheating, but every once in a while when I am bored I check out the “surreal” tag on Gelbooru.

A lot of the stuff is just uninspired, stereotypical anime crap, but there is also a decent amount of interesting, and even gorgeous stuff to pick out as well.

More in line with the thread, here are the very few artsy/pretty images I have stored on my computer. I don’t really save stuff that isn’t mine locally, so these are exceptions and I’ve just never bothered to clean them out, but here you go.

Even though they’ve kind of been picked clean I still find Bernd and Hilla Becher very inspiring. Likewise Hideaki Yuchiyama

(i hate the way discourse handles images so much)
