Twitter Link Roundup #281 – We Love Great Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | August 7th, 2015

Artists got skills, yo. As a person whose entire career has been devoted to supporting the work of artists, I like to think that I have seen great works unfold before my eyes. And I have. But when I saw this video, I was blown away – the artistry and skill behind this pencil astounds me every time I watch. I think it will astound you as well.

Now close your mouth – you look silly with your jaw hanging down to your chest. In any case, t’s time to focus. Why? Because it’s time for our latest set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
