Thanks to Martin Owens, there's now an Ubuntu-Artists group at DeviantArt.
Martin wants anyone who is involved in Ubuntu related art/design and uses or is interested in Ubuntu to join. He also want to favorites contain artworks made using Ubuntu, and the galleries to contain things that were made for Ubuntu (wallpapers, ui mockups, tans, fan-art, etc).
I have only today noticed the a new feature in DeviantArt called Groups, this allows people to get together and form communities.http://ubuntu-artists.deviantart.com/
So I have applied to create a social group called “Ubuntu-Artists” which will hopefully act as a point of contact for anyone who uses ubuntu to create Art, for people who make Art for the community or for people who do UI design work for any of the programs in Ubuntu.
Available at the following link: http://ubuntu-artists.deviantart.com/
Please do join and post your Ubuntu related artworks and designs.
What will be really good is getting a place where Ubuntu Art can be hosted, collected and shown off in all it’s glory. There are some really amazing art works created in Inkscape, Gimp and Blender on Ubuntu and it’s time we got to appreciate the artists who are striking out against the common belief that Macs make the best artist computers or that windows is where every drawing tablet works.
