This is my own personal list of art and animation links, which I visit on a regular base.  No particular system to it – not even in alphabetical order,  just a mix of …resources, news, jobs…
I  try to keep this list up to date and keep on including relevant links. Most of these links will have more links also.  Please feel free to contact me if you notice any dead links or have exciting new ones for me.
