Twitter Art Exhibit

I’m not sure how, exactly, I found out about it, on Twitter I’m sure, but I stumbled across the Twitter Art Exhibit.  I knew I had to participate.  It was started by David Sandum a couple years back, and has since exploded. (BTW, I did a painting of David for the Sketchbook Project a few posts ago)  This year, after being approached by Nat George, an LA-based artist, about it, they’re hosting the exhibit in LA this coming January.  I just think it’s the coolest thing.  Check it out.
