Seriously, if you have an artist you admire, go send them an email or a tweet or something short and personal. Many of you probably are artists, so you know how good it fees when you find out someone is actually looking at your stuff.
Also, as the diagram shows, artists literally don't have arms until they get feedback. It's a weird physiological thing that we should probably start researching or something.
PS: My geek music album Borken Telephone out on Spotify! Follow Rock, Paper, Cynic and give it a listen!
