Okay (I love starting a blog with the word - okay), I've got an idea, its not totally original - actually its not at all original, but its new to me...
You've all heard about the "A Painting A Day" project - if you haven't here's a brief overview. Way back, around the turn of the century, an artist named Duane Keiser thought up a brilliant idea to bring in steady income. He decided to get up every morning, paint a small painting (5" x 5" or 6" x 6" and so on), take a digital photo of the painting and post it on his blog. He would then link the photo to ebay for a week or two of bidding. When the painting was dry and the cash received, he'd pack up his piece in a cushioned envelope and ship it off in the mail to his happy patron. At the end of the year, he had a huge following and a huge amount of cash in his pocket. Hundreds (possibly thousands) of artists have followed in Mr. Keiser's footsteps.
So - here's my twist... A Famster A Day!
I'm also adding a few happy incentives to encourage you to join me every day. Each day, a newly birthed critter will be photographed in an extra special, super-secret locale. It will be your job to figure out WHERE the picture has been taken. On some days your reward will simply be the delight of exercising your amazing intellect. On other days (what I call "the dog days") you'll have more tangible rewards, such a creamy latte, a tasty burger, or even a famster of your own. How will you know its one of those special days? When you spy my sweet, silly, not-so-bright dog, Zoli, in the photo.
My launch begins March 1, 2010 - and now its time to sleep on it!
