When Google launched Deep Dream code a few years ago everyone went mad for the possibilities.It was just a flash in the pan for a couple of weeks. Not for everyone though. Using artificial Intelligence to help create new art was seen as the new Digital Creativity.. Deepart shows what is possible again. And it is FUN

Warning may be addictive.This site lets you generate art one drawing at a time.The amount of hours I have personally spent playing with this tool is a bit embarrassing. However you may be able to contain your inner creative.It sure is hard to stop drawing with it once you start. Make sure you have at least an hour spare before you attempt to play with this!

A weird little drawing tool that takes a little time to get used to but can create really beautiful designs when you pesevere.Take time to check out all the different tools and it also allows you to save your creations.Definitive fun for those feeling uninspired and what their inner Artist to break free.

Harmony by Mr doob is quite an interesting drawing tool. At first it might seem uninspiring but use the drop down box to create more and more interesting patterns.It takes a little while to work out the different ways to draw with it, However I  won't give you any hints because discovery inspires you to get the best out of it.

There is a reason why he/or she called their site Mr doob, because you have to wonder what they were smoking when they created some of the applications. A site where imagination seems to run free and with absolute abandon. Play with it when you feel uninspired or perhaps smoking the wacky tobacci yourself.

A drawing tool that seems to love angles, angles and more angles. I never quite was able to get something I wanted from this. Maybe I just wasn't trying hard enough. However it is fun and interesting and worth a try.

A drawing tool that can make beautiful Mandalas or check out the gallery and see some of the amazing creations that people do using this tool. It is simple and really easy to use. Online drawing never seemed quite so imaginative

A Drawing tool that takes a little time to understand the buttons and what they do but well worth the effort if you want to make gothic inspired Art with a bit of skater/graffitti style thrown in. It is hard to entirely describe what it does. Best to experiment for yourself.

After purchasing over the last couple of years good old Spirographs I came across this site which takes the frustration out of Spirographs and puts it online. It is exactly what it says it is and will help you create that Spirographic Art that frustrated you as a child, It is also great for showing to kids as they will love it too.

A simple Version of Spirograph that does all the work for you. It is on a kids site but I did actually create a fun Artwork from using it,so it is worth a look.

Pixabay · Stunning Free Images Over 1.4 million royalty free stock photos and videos shared by our generous community. That is what it says and that is what it is.

Have you ever wanted to make your own Gif ? Giphy is there to help you. It may not be the traditional tool to make Art for Print on Demand. However it is included in this list because it is just one of those things you take for granted and never think to try it yourself. Now you can.

I included this because sometimes it is good to dream what may be possible if and when you get to have or be included in a Gallery Show. If nothing else this Website may give you inspiration.

Ok be prepared it is time to kick it OLD SCHOOL.This site takes you back to the 90's as to what a site could be. However it is worth the peruse because there are little nuggets of information scattered all over this directory. Sure some links are broken and it looks like it came from the time websites forgot.

Inkscape is an open-source vector graphics editor similar to Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, or Xara X. What sets Inkscape apart is its use of Scalable Vector graphics (SVG), an open XML-based W3C standard, as the native format. In other words you can use it to make Art.

I love Skillshare. They keep asking me to come onboard and be a tutor .Maybe one day when I have the time and I am not building useful websites , or managing my Print On Demand Biz. Needless to say this is a go to website to learn Skills in all things creative.
