A welcome pattern now seems to be emerging.
The Homepage artwork selections seem consistently good and nowhere near as patchy and uncohesive as they once were.
Whoever is responsible, your good eye is clearly showing … keep those good calls coming!
Potentially taken for granted? Thank you for all your time, effort and dedication!
The Redbubble Group Hosts do such a great job in facilitating wider exposure of thousands of Bubblers’ work, let alone running fun creative challenges, selecting featured art and much more.
In the process also creating so many special categories for work catering to the more specific interests of site visitors.& users … and facilitating everyone’s capacity to view entirely specialist collections all at once, without an unedited search.
Signs of life, death and rebirth?
All the more admirable a role these days, given that seemingly more and more groups appear to be ‘coming and going’ or fall inactive for periods of time. With some completely host-less and/or no longer accept…
Someone with a discerning eye seems to be making better featured artwork selections recently … good standard for most! Or am I just imagining things?
It still seems readily apparent that one key category of art that still retains the capacity to almost immediately divide people into ‘’like’ and ‘dislike’ or ‘interested’ and ‘uninterested’ (and as a third catch-all category ‘open-minded’ maybe) is abstract art … and abstract photography.
On the other hand, abstracts are probably much more widely accepted these days than they once were, given how visual and varied a world we witness each and every day, with so many manufactured – and nature created – images of great diversity and impact overwhelming and influencing us, wherever we look.

Just posted the following comment on this topic in response to RB article:

Nice surprise … just discovered an old public art image (taken in Seattle) included in the current RB Collection on Ampersands & Art
(8th image down.)
Just tried to complete the popup online survey questions regarding selling that RB is currently running.
Did they test run this survey themselves before posting it?
It is a total screw up … one page was open for too few seconds to even read anything.
So question relationships left unclear too.
Basically wanted to help the team and check it out. Foiled again!

Ethan Nicolle, of cult comic strip Axe Cop fame, interviewed about adults losing their sense of wonder and imagination and how the perspective of his much younger, co-creator brother came to affect outright his own philosophy on life:

You know it’s okay to be amazed by everything and I think it’s a better life to be lived when you look at the world that way.”
