i’m attempting a new feature for my tumblr. artist identification; it’s radical, i know. but i intend to try to identify the artist of each picture on a best-remembered basis. the reason i never did this to begin with, is because i was never good at organizing meta data. but someone pointed out that i don’t need to be perfect with this; i just need to identify what i can, and leave the framework in place for unidentified artists to be identified in the future.
i am accomplish this through tagging. art submissions are to be tagged by a common artist name. for example, an artwork by braford will be tagged artist braford, and it will organize other braford artworks also on my tumblr. for artworks whose artist i don’t know, can’t remember or simply an artist i recognize but whose name i couldn’t remember, i’ll tag artist unidentified, so that it can possibly be identified later.
i have more potential ideas on how to improve this, but for now i’ll stick with the artist name tagging. it may take some time for me to finish that as it is.
