Many thanks to James @ Gurney Journey for mentioning the 101 Top Artists Blogs List.
James Gurney's daily weblog is for illustrators, comic artists, plein-air painters, sketchers, animators, art students, and writers. You'll find practical studio tips, insights into the making of the Dinotopia books, and first-hand reports from art schools and museums.

  • Anonymous 3.3.08

    The rewards of awards!
    Looks like you need a new art gallery to display all of them!

    P.S. I love changing my HMSS code names to play a Under-the-Cover Agent!

    Have you seen Speedcat Bond 0007 and the Missing-In-Action Flying Dutchman sailing from the secret secret secret NoDirectOn blog in your travels around Blogsylvania?

  • Kim 3.3.08

    Blogsylvania !!
    I like that ..Miss MP...
    I think you and 007 along with J of no direction...should watch the movie by Woody Allen - Zelig...because I believe you would all become big stars like him..
    I have a gallery (page) for awards but alas the shoulder is not up to updates...

  • Speedcat Hollydale 3.3.08

    Well .... I must be the luckiest boy in town! (and your favorite house cat) Thanks Kim 8~)

    Can I get a silk screen t-shirt version?? A hat would be sweet as well - COWBOY STYLE My awards party will be quite elaborate, and you are invited. My SpeedyCat Airlines private jet will pick you up at Australia International airport at 9:00 PM CST. I'll have you back for a huge lunch in the breakfast room.

    Ohhh, don't tell anyone about this - as they will ALL want to be flown in. The rest of my attendants will have to ride in limos. (TOP Secret 0007 message)

    Code name for Jet Aircraft entry: "Hollyton Speedyton #7"

    Happy week my friend!!!!!!
    Eric (an alias) aka MOODRING

  • Kim 3.3.08

    haha Speedy
    now you know I don't like cats !!!
    I think the new badge would look good on your silk screened Kind Award tee shirt....
    SpeedyCat Airlines private jet :=D
    I hope the jet was built by Quantas as they are THE safest jet builders in the world....
    lunch in the breakfast room...too !!
    wow I'll put my order in now for chicken chow mein and banana sandwiches...

    I feel very privileged....

    Hope your shoulder is healing, it's a very long, drawn out process though and can make many things much more difficult!

    Have a wonderful day,
    Hugs my dear friend,
    Colin from Life

  • Kim 4.3.08

    thanks Colin
