Our furst challenge was in January. Dubbed "The Endangered Species Challenge", it drew attention to numerous endangered anipals while pawticipants were able to showcase their phodography and writing skills.
Incidentally, the Endangered Species Challenge will remain open indefinitely, so if you would like to enter, just contact me through the contact form on my sidebar on the sidebar of the Arts and Entertainment Department website.
Fur February our department is hosting the Self Pawtrait Challenge. This one has a firm deal lion of February 15th and it involves creating some kind of artistic self pawtrait. All entries will be displayed on February 25th on the Arts and Entertainment website.
Speaking of the website, I want to thank Ann Andamus of Zoolatry, who graciously donated her design skills so we can have a beautifur site. I think that everybuddy will agree that Ann did a wonderfur job.
Another impawtant development is that Jakey, who is the Director of Artistic Developmment, has agreed that our two depawtments should be combined. This means that Jakey and I will be working together. He has much more technical knowledge than I have so he will be posting tutorials to help Blogville residents with their art projects. Jakey is good at what he does. If it weren't fur him I wouldn't have a clue about how to use Pizap. He made it easy-peasy-lemon-squeasy.
That is pretty much all I have to say, except that I would love it if you would join me. I am about to open the Dog Perignon, which is good fur kitties, crabby girls and bunnies too.
It was Charlie Down Under who suggested that we have some decent drinks. Actually, he likes pale ale, which we now have in abundance. Thanks, Charlie, fur the good advice!
Remember, Jakey and I have an open door policy and we welcome you to visit our offices at any time. In addition to drinks we have pizza, barbequed chickens and many delicious treats.
Thanks again fur stopping by!
