It's just that there are all these amazing things to be seen and read with just a few clicks. You can find tutorials on how to do just about anything, whether it's how to draw a face or how to birth a calf (seriously, it's out there). For me, I love that I get to see beautiful art work from amazing people that I would never get to see otherwise.
So, in my wanderings around the internet, I came across the BEST THING EVER! Well, I think so anyway. I love this picture so much, words are incapable of describing it!

So thank you wonderful person at runlorirun.typepad.com (who's name is possibly Lori, although I am not sure), because you are internet gold, and my new art crush!
