Live Blogging Event

Last gallery an inspirational event took place. ART Evolved administrator Peter Bond's live blogged the creation of his Anomalocaris piece. We thought it was such a great idea, and produced such great results we would try to organize another round of it. Only this time with more then one artist taking part!

We are wanting to organize a big Sauropod live blogging event for the weekend of October 17-18th.

If you are an artist, we challenge you to set aside one (or even both) of these days and do nothing but palaeo-art with only some short breaks to quickly do a blog post on your progress throughout the day(s).

If you are a reader of this site, we invite you to join these brave and dedicated artists on their artistic journey as it happens!

The benefit for artists are not only will participating give you a good push to getting you piece done and ready for the Sauropod gallery's launch, but it can give you key feedback and suggestions from your audience as you create! That doesn't happen everyday now does it?

If you are interested, whether you are a member of this blog or not, leave us either a comment on this post or send us an email (artevolved@gmail.com) telling us your blog's link and which day and time you'll be starting (with a time zone too if you could please), and we'll put it up on central post here before the weekend so everyone knows where the live blogging is occurring.

Everyone else watch for that advertising post, and on the 17th and 18th please pop by those artists' blogs and offer them some suggestions and encouragement!

Is the focus of the live-blogging the progression of wips? Why not do them here? I'm in, in any case.

I'd love to partake. Give me a date and I'm game.

The plan is that the Liveblogging Extravaganza be help next weekend October 17-18! So glad to see you all in - with Craig and I also liveblogging, we will all be a force to recon with!

Craig has lain out the basic about liveblogging here, but I'd just like to point out that the reason we aren't planning to post everyone's liveblogging sessions on ART Evolved is that it would get absolutely swamped.

I alone plan to post perhaps 12 consecutive posts - one an hour - showing the creation of one piece from start to finish.

This is only my plan and you can choose your own style of liveblogging - whatever fits your creative process! I expect everyone's style will be different, which is why we should liveblog on our own blogs.

ART Evolved will of course be posting links to everyone's blogs as the liveblogging takes place. I can't wait to see what we all come up with!

I'll be live blogging on my own blog tomorrow-Friday 16th. (That's today actually as it's one in the morning now in England! I must sleeeep!)I'll post a link on ART Evolved if I can work out how to do it...or even stay awake that long.
