I've always sorted my favourites folders for people that find new art/ists by browsing others' favourites - now I rearranged them in a more sensible way (or so I hope
). It was a pain to move stuff forth and back and I sometimes filled a folder just to realize that the previous order had made more sense
I especially thought about how to re-sort the photography and comic folders... and I resorted to splitting them up in a couple of sub-categories
Have fun browsing through the folders!

P.S.: A couple of artsy quotes... I do believe in the power of story. I believe that stories have an important role to play in the formation of human beings, that they can stimulate, amaze and inspire their listeners.
- Hayao MiyazakiWe depict hatred, but it is to depict that there are more important things. We depict a curse, to depict the joy of liberation.
- Hayao MiyazakiAll [writing] styles are good except the boring kind.
- VoltaireLogic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
- Albert EinsteinOne must be an inventor to read well. There is creative reading as well as creative writing.
- Ralph Waldo EmersonThere are two ways of being creative. One can sing and dance. Or one can create an environment in which singers and dancers flourish.
- Warren G. Bennis
