Sauropod Live Blogging Schedule

Prepare for a Palaeo-art filled weekend online!

We have a number of artists taking up the live blogging challenge in preparation for the Sauropod gallery, and you should definitely take the chance to check out their progress!

First off Rachael's effort is documented here.

Mo will be trying to get an incredibly ambitious 24 Sauropods done in 12 hours, starting Saturday from about 11am GMT and going until 11pm

David will be starting on Saturday sometime between 1 and 3 pm, but thinks likely 2.

Peter starts his Saturday morning (clicking this link will take you straight to Peter's labelled posts).

Zach plans to start Saturday sometime.

Craig will also be starting Saturday (actually Sunday in New Zealand, but he is a day ahead of most people out there) in the afternoon (due to time zoning).

Nima begins his live blogging efforts on Sunday at 3:00 Pacific Standard time.

Finally Sean plans to join in the live blogging, but isn't not sure exactly when he'll start yet (stay tuned)

As this is our first time trying to organize such an ambitious multi person/multi timezone project it is a little chaotic to collect and report at moment. Please bear with us through this experimental first try, and we're certain the results will be well worth it.

Check back this post and its comments throughout the weekend for updated times and links as they become available. Artists please be sure to let us know as soon as possible through both comments on this post, and an email so that the site administrators can update this post itself.

If you're an artist who'd still like to participate it is not too late. Just send us a comment on this post or an email to

Also a note to our participating artists, if you could please create a unique label for this event on your posts for us to link to it would be greatly appreciated!

So please check out all the excitment with our first live blogging event!

Hey guys, I'm also planning to do live blogging on this Sunday, in the afternoon. Probably starting around 3:00 Pacific Standard time.

I'll post any changes in plans here, but for now I'm on for Sunday 3:00pm PST.

Awesome Nima! Will definitely tune in! (Having problems commenting on yours and Rachel's blogs. Not sure why, but the system doesn't work for me.)

Started a speed paint search for the illustration I'm after...
I'll only have another hour today, but I hope to get back to this tomorrow.

Zach said...

Hey, gents. Sorry I didn't get to this today. My wife's been taking up the computer with work. I'll try and do this tomorrow...there are three animals I'm going to document!

Rachael said...

This is great! So many different styles emerging and still more to go.
It's wierd though, posting work before it's finished. Felt a bit uncomfortable with it at first but after a while I thought it was quite liberating. Never good to get too precious about your work.

Can we do it again? can we? can we?

I just put up my first post. I'm doing Apatosaurus louisae...

Nima said...

I'm starting my live blogging now.

It's going to be mid-Jurassic china with Shunosaurus and Omeisaurus. And lots of trees lol...

There is some amazing artwork (focusing on dinosaurs!) on this blog. I can't wait for my grandson to come home. He's very into drawing anything and everything. He will love this blog. Thanks!
