1st Blogiversary of The Flying Trilobite

...and this time, instead of paintings, I have photos.

The Flying Trilobite began as a way to promote my artwork and find new commissions and collaborations. It has also turned out to be a terrific outlet for my intellectual growth and artistic development; I am constantly engaged by new ideas I read from the scientific, Bright and arts communities. As I mentioned in my year-end round up, I also discovered a welcoming community of creative and shiny people online.

So, let's celebrate with cake, shall we?!

Uh-oh. The Mythical Flying Trilobite Fossil found it first. Yummy!

Thanks again to everyone who has made it such a great 1st year. If you keep viewing and commenting, (and commissioning!), I'll keep painting. Deal?

Let's eat cake.

(No monarch butterflies were harmed in the making of this blog post. At least - not harmed by me. What you are seeing are wings found lying in a park last summer with some ants on the sticky bits. Perhaps a bird or dragonfly was responsible, but it was mainly only the wings left. Scouts' honour.)

Thank you, thank you - you shouldn't have!

Of course, I have some delicious coffee to go with that cake.

Both of you have helped me feel that taking my artwork online was the right decision.

And Evolved, I am correcting my link-oversight. you shoulda thrown a tomato at me sooner.

I should probably note: I'm late to my own party. The actual blogiversary was March 7th. What can I say. Saturday is a good day to party.

And thanks to Craig and Traumador for the birthday wishes on my last post! (Happy birthday Craig!)

Peter Bond said...

Happy Blog-Day!!!

Trilocake, MMmmmmmm!

(Someone should really begin selling cakes with fossils on top - Anomilocake, cakeraptor with graptolicing! Or even fossil-shaped cakes! Yeah! Yum!)

Laelaps said...

Happy blogiversary! I know I'm not a long-time reader, but I will definitely be coming by much more often.

The Flying Trilobite said...

Why thank you, Mr Bond!

There's a link to trilobite-shaped cookies in my sidebar! Perhaps a couple of us could go into the Cambrian Catering business.

Laelaps! 'Sokay! Thanks for coming by! Would you like a piece of trilobite-cake? Bumbleberry muffin?

FREE RANGE KIDS said...

Awww, your wickle blog is one!! These precious days go by so fast, don't they? Happy Blogi, Blogo, or Bloga Versary!

The Flying Trilobite said...

The precious days do indeed go by fast, FRK. Why, I can hardly believe how many words I'm capable of using now!

And how many alternate spellings there are to a word that didn't exist a decade ago.

Have a slice of cake; I think the eggs were free range...

Marek said...

Congrats on the milestone! Your's is always one of the first blogs I check out!

The Flying Trilobite said...

Thanks Marek! I saved a slice for you! :-)

Well, you are looking well-dressed as always...!

The Flying Trilobite said...

Hi Leslie!

Um, I think *you* thought of it!

Thanks for the wishes!

Happy blogiversary!

In honour of your 1st blog birthday, Fresh Brainz has adopted your quote as our slogan.

Freaky freaky.

May the fun and commissions always keep flyin' in!

The Flying Trilobite said...

Many Freaky Returns to you as well Lim!

The cake is now stale, and the frosting is the only good part left.

But I have ice cream!

Jesse Graham said...

LOL I really like the butterfly wings.

The Flying Trilobite said...

Thanks Jesse! :-)

The wings make the arthropod.
