    Nice work and page!
    For some moving images/paintings see the ‘Paint tube’ of Marc Spanjers.
    Around 30 painted and then filmed YouTube channels made in 2011.
    All inspired by the diversity on YouTube. (Which was more personal/better before the change of lay-out..so what you see there is already oldskool.
    Greetings Dublin and the rest! Paint on.
