Yes, it's been a while since I last posted. I've been a bit busy; with end-of-the-year substitute teaching and privately tutoring ten students, the only art I've been able to produce is set painting for a Hamlet show and a coral reef painting I've started. With all this, and the depression surrounding the oil spill, I haven't been up to posting.
But I'm back, and with an update on the new Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia here in Vancouver! Check out my previous post on the announcement and backstory here.
Yesterday, I had some time off and decided to go check out the full Blue Whale skeleton in person!
Unfortunately, the museum wasn't open yet! Aak! So instead of smashing through the glass and swinging from the bones, I decided to wait until Fall 2010. But check out these photos of the mammoth whale, in full feeding pose, below! Also, check out these official Flickr pics for more...

Now to go work on my trilobite for ART Evolved's July Trilobite Time Capsule and my answer to the Philofossilizing question, "What is Palaeo-Art?"
Oh! And I'm borrowing my sister's drawing tablet (Wacom Intuos 3) and trying to get my head around it. Any insight or advice for tablet owners?
