The Internet is an amazing thing.

I signed on to my email today to find a flurry of requests for my first place "Death Of A Cyborg" entry in this Worth1000 contest.  People wanting to buy it to blow up, frame and put on their walls.  One of them was from Frank Warren, the founder of Postsecret, a favourite site of mine and one that gets millions of hits daily.  He was asking for a print to put up in the PostSecret office.  I'm chuffed!  But... the majority of that piece is by a long dead classic painter, William Bouguereau.  Still, being featured on Boingboing is a big thrill and made me realize that it was posted there thanks to this long trail of linkies:

 

BoingBoing.net - one of the top rated and most read blog sites on the internet

EmptyKingdom - a "Home for Digital Artists" featuring the work of all kinds of amazing talent

Richard Kadrey's Tumblr  - Richard Kadrey is a novelist (who's books are being made into films), freelance writer and photographer

Criminal Wisdom  - another of those cool blogs that posts cool stuff so I'm happy to be included.

 

Thanks to this flurry of attention I got over 2,000 hits here in the past two days.  Thank you intranet!

That's actually a great idea Dylan. If I can find a high enough res image of the original painting I'll do just that :)

Ahh please, pretty please, pretty pretty pretty please do a high res version for sale! I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

The artist died in 1905, and other works of his appear in Wikipedia as public domain :

Soo........ how about it? :)
