Take This Opportunity to Deface My Art

My latest artwork is an image that is never quite the same twice. I worked hard on it. Framed it. Hung it in a gallery. Now you come along with your paints and markers and mess it all up. I’m curious to see what you decide to do. So when you deface my best work ever just hit the ‘upload art’ button to send your artwork to me. You can get a copy for yourself by clicking the ‘download’ button. You get 3 uploads, so try to make it count.

Have fun destroying one of my proudest creations!

Roald Dahl’s Writing Hut Virtual Tour

This makes me laugh every time I see it.  It’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen on the web related to a famous writer.  So, it would seem that the great children’s author, Roald Dahl, wrote all of his books, like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, James and the Giant Peach, and Danny the Champion of the World, in a tiny, dilapidated, filthy old shack in his backyard.  Here’s a picture of his ratty worn-out armchair.  Imagine what went on in this tiny room!  His brain was exploding with all those stories and fantastic characters and he was probably fighting the drafts and killing bugs the whole time.  I can totally understand what he must have loved about his little ‘writing hut.’  It was probably his perfect little creative world.

You can look all around Mr. Dahl’s hut with the online virtual tour at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Center web site.
