Often I find links that are interesting but I don’t know what to do with. Here are some for this month.
Art related links: If you draw and are running out of ideas, try this, Random Art Prompt Generator. I was interested in printmaking lately. Here are some links to various sites on it:

Random: I love motorcycles as an object, and Uncrate has some cool ones, like this Volcon Runt Kid’s Motorcycle. If you are painting your house and can’t pick from thousands of colours, perhaps this list of 50 will help you narrow it down:
