I need a name for my website!!

What would be a catchy domain name for a website that shows off and sells my artwork?

I do pencil drawings (mostly black and white but sepia and color as well). I am trying to promote my artwork and hopefully make a little cash in the process. I need a catchy domain name but all the ones I come up with are either lame or boring. My name is Paige, but it doesn't necesarily need to be a part of the domain name. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Hmm. You do mostly sketches, so...

Pencil Pusher

or something along those lines.

See what JabberWordy suggests.

It might be helpful if the name could reflect something essential about your work: Subjects? Style? Themes? Influences?

Can you show us a few pieces you're particularly proud of? We're going on less than you are right now.

This is a really dumb idea, but when I need to think of phrases like that (whether it's domain names, usernames, whatever) I like to use this neat little phrase generator. Choose an uncommon adjective followed by a somewhat uncommon noun, and the results are sure to delight. Some of the things I got:

Impassable Sureness
Unshared Playbill
Hunky Cleanup
Unabsorbed Shogun
Discerning Briquet
Irruptive Burg
Splittable Hairdressing

Sure, they're nonsense, and they have nothing to do with art. But I think they're absolutely charming, and it's what I would do. Then again, I'm slightly nuts (in a really charming way!) I mean, a place named "Unabsorbed Shogun" would certainly stick out!

well, if you want to get all literal etc, a friend of mine is picking up some extra gidas with his site, iwanttodrawacatforyou.com

Could you link some of your artwork to inspire the Brain, please.

Honestly, I think firstnamelastname.com is always the best for an artist's website.
