(Mostly) digital art A-Z

I like lists. Here’s another set of my delicious links, this time art related. To reiterate, I don’t usually save the really obvious stuff to delicious, or the really easy to find stuff. This is a mixture of digital art, new media curation and illustration. Lots of it I discovered whilst doing my MA in Digital Media as I did my dissertation on curating new media art.
