Burning Man Bound

I will be away for the computer for the next two weeks, with the plan to head down to Burning Man for the first time!  If you don't know what Burning Man is, check this out.  Unfortunately, I'm typing this as I am actually heading out the door (for the drive from BC to Nevada).

Preparation, planning, packing, and now off.  See you in a bit, with stories, photos, and sunburn!

ART Evolved is evolving into a Network

Our little ART Evolved Network has evolved with it's own RSS Feed! You can subscribe to it by clicking on the icon above (or at the top of the left sidebar), and follow all 20 or so fascinating blogs from one place!

The network and RSS feeds are designed to put ART Evolved, and everyone involved with it, more exposure and hopefully more opportunities for freelance gigs and jobs.  One step always leads to another!  Big thanks to Glendon for putting in the R&D time to make this happen!

Fawlty Towers Poster Design

design © 2010 Peter Bond

Something non-paleo this time:  Here is the final version of the poster that will advertise the upcoming SMP show, Fawlty Towers.  In the show, which will be made up of two of the television episodes, I get the honor of playing Basil Fawlty.

Yes, him.

While learning John Cleese's many ad-libed lines, I have also thrown together a smaller, bookmark-sized advertisement for easy distribution.

So if you happen to be in the North Vancouver area during late October, stay for a spell at Fawlty Towers and see this amateur artist make a complete fool of himself!

A Return to Blogging about Art

Ode to a Tyrannosaur (2010)
a portrait of Traumador the Tyrannosaur

Well, it's been a while!  Hi!  I have a blog!  After two months of inactivity, I shall now remember I have a blog and begin posting again.  (Blog apathy passing...)

The above painting was a gift to Craig, the author of The Tyrannosaur Chronicles.  It captures his title character between the depths of deep time and the heights of outer space, a truly living fossil.

Inspiration comes from all around and I got an intense paleontological dose on my recent trip to Calgary and Drumheller, home of dinosaurs and full of old friends...

Inspiration indeed!
