If you answered yes to any of the questions in the title then you have to check out Artella.
Artella is pretty cool and it is a creative/artsy type community. It has a forum, a gallery and members can have their own blogs. On top of that it has an online store (some items being sold by Artella and some items being sold by members of the community). Artella also has workshops that some people might find interesting.
Right now there is a holiday gala sale going on (banner below). eStuff (such as eBooks, eArt supplies, and workshops) is 55% off. A bunch of other items are also on sale from 5-50% off (jewelry,books,art supplies,etc). So might be worth checking out
. Everything isn't Vegan so be careful. A lot of stuff is though. Obviously you do not have to worry about the eStuff.
Tons of creative products
