Live Blogging Therizinosaurs?

With things hopefully calming down in your life after the holidays, and the calender slowly progressing towards the ART Evolved one year anniversary gallery (on Therizinosaurs) we thought it might be time to mobilize some...

Live Blogging!

For those new to the concept, live blogging (here at ART Evolved anyways) is where the artist of a piece documents the various steps that go into the creation of the artwork. This record can be either posted literally live as you work, or simply recorded and presented in order later.

We will be setting up another live blog central hub for the March gallery shortly (for a sample hub go to our first live blogging event here). So if you are interested in live blogging let us know when (with the day you'll be starting, so people know when to tune in) and where (your blog or website address) in either this posts comment section or send us it in an email artevolved@gmail.com.
Even if you cven if you can't get to live blogging, please consider creating a Therizinosaur piece this March, and sending it in to artevolved@gmail.com

Alright! I'm in for a little liveblogging! Anyone thinking of joining me?! I'll bake cookies!

For anyone who has never opened up and shared their art techniques, this event is a wonderful! And this is of course open to EVERYBODY!

I'm thinking about liveblogging early February, perhaps the first of second weekend. Who's in?

Still struggling here. Did manage a review of the Hagdorn museum, though: http://www.drip.de/?p=546

I love the hell out of Therizinosaurs, and I like posts about different art techniques. I may not be able to live blog (early March is crazy for me this year), but I'd still like to participate. We can send stuff in early, right?

Mo Hassan said...

oh yes, I'd love to do this again! Sauropods were fun but I really love therizinosaurs, and will probably attempt to do every genus in a similar style!

Peter- I'm in for that first or second weekend... Of course we can sort it out once I'm in town ;)

Everyone else should be watching for the crazy mayhem that ensues when you put two ART Evolved founders in one place!!!...

Weapon of Mass Imagination said...

David- No worries man. We totally understand.

Remember ART Evolved is supposed to be fun, and not at all resembling work! So if you need to take a break totally do so. Either wait till the next gallery you have time for, or send us in a Therizinosaur late. We'll put it up even if it is really late.

Weapon of Mass Imagination said...

Trish- Right off the bat you can ALWAYS send us stuff early. In all honesty the earlier the better for us (it makes arranging and sorting the gallery way easier on our end ;P), but again we also take late pieces too!

As for early March I sympathize, hopefully it goes smoothly at least. Nothing worse then lumpy busy ;)

If you really wanted to live blog, there is nothing saying you couldn't start live blogging right nowish. We'll put up the live blogging hub post now, and just add "late" comers to the post as they come.

Can't wait to see your Therizinosaur!

Mo- You are a machine man... a crazy funky machine, but a machine none the less!

Your sauropods were epic enough, but ALL the Therizinosaurs. I know there aren't that "many" of them in comparison, but a lot more then when I was a kid, that is for sure...

Good luck, and I look forward to it. Just let us know a date to start watching for. I loved watching the Sauropods appear!

Mo Hassan said...

There's only 12 of 'em (I agree, there hardly seemed any 15 years ago)... if I do one an hour I can get them done in the same time as the sauropods live blog.

I'm up for it. Peter I wish I could join you all for cookies. I'll bake my own and we can have synchronised cookie eating across the world.

Been doing a bit of research as I don't know much about therizinosaurs.
Zach's done some interesting research on his blog 'when pigs fly returns' into their posture.
Are there any new developments regarding the 'walking on the knuckles' idea? Zach mentions the Russell and Russell 1993 paper so I'm going to try to get hold of it through the open univeristy online library. I'll let you all know if I'm successful.

Zach did you ever get hold of a copy? how did your own research go?

What's everybody's thoughts on posture? Semi upright or knuckle walk?

David- going to check out your review today.

Albertonykus said...

Rather upright stances are well accepted for therizinosaurs nowadays I'd say.

No pronated hands, though, I warn! Professional I am not, but I think it would be good for everyone to remember that theropods didn't have bunny hands. (Incidentally, neither did most "prosauropods".) Their palms face only inward, not down!
