Portraiture is my thing. It's just the one form of art that speaks to me emotionally more than anything else.

The NPG London has an interesting Gay Icons exhibit currently going on and will also be celebrating icon Twiggy's 60th birthday with an exhibit of photographs. Super cool. Plus check out the prize winners of the BP Portrait Award 2009 as well as enter next year if you're over 18 if you think you have the chops.

The National Portrait Gallery Washington has a fantastic online exhibit of Time Magazine cover art. It's interesting to peruse through the art and ponder the timeliness of current event art, for example this piece by Frank Gallo depicting then sex symbol Raquel Welch, which supposedly was deemed tasteless and generated many written complaints.
