    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks so much for checking out the app, we truly appreciate it. Lots of the art is submitted by the creators. We run a weekly $350 art contest so we're seeing lots of great artist submissions. You bring up a great point about reposts. As an artist myself, one of the main goals in creating this app was to be sure artists got proper attribution. We see tons of reposts on other platforms that never credit the artist or give information on where we can see more of their work.

    All of our uploads are checked against the existing collection so there are never duplicates on the platform. Another goal of ours was sharing and discovering new artists with friends and the community. So it's possible to upload artwork that you just come across that isn't yours but you wanted to turn others on to. Users are encouraged and rewarded to attribute the work to the proper artist and it will be associated and presented on that artists' profile.

    To view artwork by tag/topic you can simply swipe up on a card to view the details of each piece. From there you will see all the tags associated with that artwork and have the ability to generate a stack of artwork that you can swipe through based on the tag you have selected. In the details we also recommend similar artwork that you may not have seen and might want to browse.

    We're constantly learning, iterating, and improving so we really appreciate any feedback and ideas you might have.

    Thanks again, Jon
