Hello all, this is my first post on this blog.

If, like me, you spent half your childhood glued to Network 2 (or RTE 2 as it's now referred to), you will not want to miss Thursday night in the Bernard Shaw. Don. Bleeding. Conroy. Fran, Michelle, Liam and myself will be there. Let's make a Tinderbox night of it.

Hi everybody. I'm trying to get together a group of people from the sites I'm involved with (flickr, photography ireland, redbubble, tinderbox) for a visit to the Botanic Gardens in Dublin on Saturday the 2nd of April, at 11. I took this photograph there last year, a bit later in the season, May. Would you be interested in coming along? It would be a nice chance to see each other. Also, people who aren't into photography could produce a sketch, a painting, a poem, or whatever they're inspired to do while there. We could post the results here. What do you think?

Three.ie are running a competition for Irish illustrators, designers & artists to submit pieces based on themes of Freedom, Flexibility & Speed. The winner gets €2000 and an iPhone4 and there's also 3 runners up prizes of €500, plus all the winning entries may be used in future advertising campaigns or wallpapers. Bren B is one of the judges, which should set the standard pretty high.
Closing date is the 28th March and you can find out more about the brief & how to submit entries here.
I hadn't watched any of the Oscar coverage but just noticed that "The Lost Thing" won best animated short based on the book by Shaun Tan. Passion Pictures did a remarkable job of translating Tan's layered, textural artwork & fantastical creatures to the screen. You can watch the whole thing here.
