Earlier this month I undertook a big project to help 2012 go out with a bang. It was a test of endurance and a demonstration of my ink painting techniques and, although it was very difficult at times, it was very fun and ultimately very rewarding. I called this 100-hour painting marathon "Burning the Midnight Oil," but a better title would have been "The Longest Day" since that's how my brain made sense of being awake continuously for over four days. Follow the link above to read my FAQ, then explore the rest of the Burning100 blog to see all the portraits, view portions of the recorded live stream, and even read my log from 1989 when I first stayed awake for 100 hours. Enjoy!
