5 of 52: 2007 Bernal Hill Illegal Soapbox Derby Video

File under: Art

I had actually planned on using a watercolor for this weeks art piece. I made it today while I was waiting for the soapbox derby to start. Then I lost my moleskine notebook. However I had just put my contact info on the first page of it this morning, so I'm hoping someone will return it. In addition to my watercolors, it had most of the art project ideas I'd been working on.

So to come up with something for this week, I whipped together a quick video from todays footage:

2007 Bernal Hill Illegal Soapbox Derby.

It's actually not too bad, especially when watching it in HD but its ok in the web format as well. I'll upload the HD version to somewhere tomorrow. I think the Internet Archive will host it since it's CC licensed.
