I have both, they are very different bags. The artsy can fit quite a bit more but to me they have different looks. I have the GG large blooms, black and GG and GG and embroidered flowers. I had sold my artsy and just rebought a preloved one. There are a few pockets in the Dionysus but they are not big. My Sarah can take up one pocket for example and my small LV cosmetic pouch with not fit without it buldging. I don't think you can go wrong with either it depends on what you are wanting to use it for. The Dionysus is my favorite style of the Gucci bags and I feel like they are pieces of art.
