Artistic Activity A Symptom Of Economic Downturn

The economy has only just started to show signs of a recovery and the last 12-24 months has been a painful process for a lot of people and I think I've found a symptom of the economic downturn.

I have a server which I use to host a number of websites for friends and family (and friends of friends and family!) and the number of these websites has increased during the economic downturn.

However, it is interesting to note the reasons for these new sites:
Notice anything about those sites? Correct - they are all sites dedicated to showcasing artistic talent. So in an economic slowdown, do people turn their attention to handicrafts? It would seem so!

I can't complain though - my reward for hosting these sites has been two original paintings and two prints.
