The 24 hour mark....

24 hours and still painting. Things I have learned:

After 8 hours of inking/painting, your hands stop working right.
When doing something artsy like this, you shouldn't take so much caffeine that your hand shakes like that old math teacher who still has shrapnel in his head.
If I actually do this with a time limit, do NOT use acrylic paint, as that takes an hour to dry if you really have fun with it.
Do not forget to eat. This CAN result in ravenously grabbing food when you realize you're starving and forgetting that your hands are covered in paint...only remembering said fact when you TASTE said paint.
Apparently if I stay up all night my hair looks great. This knowledge is of little use as, while I look good, I stink.
When you ask your video store to "just give you stuff that'll keep you awake," remember to check the tapes before you get home. Apparently my friends at the video store thought it would be funny to give me a softcore porno film about a large breasted woman who avenges her husband's death by drugging criminals and smothering them with her huge breasts. Oh and the film's titled after her breasts, a.k.a: "Deadly Weapons." Gah.

Oh and I'm 32 paintings deep. Only 19 more to go.
