Sloth Jockey is an online venue for artists of all types to display their work. Begun in 2008, SlothJockey.com is still young, but we strive to increase our work base as much as possible by posting anything from entertainment reviews to fiction and non-fiction writing to visual art.
There is no central theme to the website, nor do we plan to implement one at any time in the future. Ideally, Sloth Jockey will become a free-for-all collection of work from contributors around the world who wish to contribute to an online community that values substance over glamour, recognizing, of course, that commentary or humor about the world around us should never be limited to one medium or another. The forms and facets of creative expression are boundless, and with a bit of luck, Sloth Jockey will thrive on the ingenuity of our contributors, though no such hopes should be entertained for its founding members.
With literature reviews, art portfolios, and general interest websites clogging the tubes around the internet, we realize that sites like SlothJockey.com are essentially a dime a dozen. It is our sincere hope that we can bring something new, or at least fun, to the whole soup.
Suggestions are always welcome at email@example.com. We regret that we are unable to fulfill requests for live sloths at this time.
