An Experiment in Live-blogging

With about two weeks to go before the Anomalocaridid Gallery on ART Evolved, the pressure to create my Anomalocaris painting is on. And with visiting friends and the beach weather, I haven't started it yet!


So I have decided to try something different this month. I am going to experiment with live-blogging! Inspired by following Glendon's live-blogging of his Darwin Day painting, I'm going to give this a shot. I'll start early on Monday, August 17th (0900h p.s.t.) and paint all day, posting every hour with updates on the picture live. Ambitious yes, but it'll be fun!

I'll make sure mint green tea, chocolate bars, and bagels are on hand, along with U2 and Linkin Park. I'll turn off the phone and not check my email (erg!), and hopefully something excellent will be produced!

Traumador and Raptor,
Thanks for the wishes of good luck! I'll be a fun ride, as long as I don't burn myself out!

Raptor - I would very much appreciated it if you kept comments such as those you made towards Traumador OFF MY BLOG. They are inappropriate and petty. Blogging is NOT a popularity contest and it saddens me that you feel you need to publicly attack Traumador here. In the future, please keep your PRIVATE CONCERNS WITH OTHER BLOGGERS off my blog.

As for Linkin Park, Dinorider, I became a huge fan of their hard electronic sounds about 6 years ago. Still love to scream my lungs out singing Numb in Karaoke! (If you haven't heard the collaboration between LP and Jay-Z, you should - it grooves!)

Nothing wrong at all with Linkin Park...loved them for ages!

Wouldn't call them Emo though...
