Share and discover your favorite art on Imagekind! With the launch of our new community, we have also implemented some really cool new features. Now you can easily embed your artwork on Imagekind to your site, networking page or blog with just a simple copy and paste action. This new feature also lets you embed your image in the new Imagekind forums!
On every artwork page, under the “share” feature, you can now select to “Clip Image ID.” A box will then appear so you can copy and paste the code where you want! Notice there are two different boxes to copy from, the top is the code for the Imagekind forums. The bottom code allows you to embed your images outside of Imagekind.
As if that’s not exciting enough, we have also launched the ability to select and save your favorite images on Imagekind! This feature is also available from every artwork page. Now, with just a simple click of the mouse, you can add an image to your favorites to view later, whenever you are on Imagekind.
A few more features we’re sure you’ll love!

“Draw with vectors! Set yourselves free!”
Vectips posted a sweet interview with one of my favorite illustration artists on Imagekind, Chris Leavens.
If you are at all interested in illustration, vector, or just plain crazy art, you should definitely check out Chris’ work.
Keep reading to see some excerpts from the interview where Chris shares some tips using vectors and insight into how he views his own work.
If I could offer one piece of advice to folks looking to work as illustrators or designers, it’s to focus your attention on cultivating your sensibilities, your angle. Too many people spend too much time trying to hone technical skills. Those come with time and experimentation. If you’re inquisitive, you’ll want to see how far you can push the tools you’re using. Your art, your style, they’re driven by your sensibilities, not your technical knowledge.
I like watching people at art shows looking at my work. Most people get these big smiles on their faces and that’s exactly the reaction I’m looking for. Occasionally some snooty types pass by and sneer, which makes me even happier. One thing that can be somewhat annoying is the ever-present assumption that I use or need to use all varieties of illicit substances to create my artwork. Honest to God, I never touch the stuff. I rarely even drink and I never drink when I’m creating my work. I just have a crazy imagination that would probably make me into a crazy person if I didn’t have some sort of creative outlet.
To see more of Chris’ amazing vector artwork, take a look at his Imagekind gallery where all of his prints are for sale.
