The weblog is a great idea, which has been extended to any number of forms. Certainly they are one of the most popular web-based applications around. With the rise of podcasting, blogs have evolved to incorporate different kinds of media, and we’ve even seen dedicated podcasting software for bloggers.

I would like to see this trend continue. A Flash example of a drawing in progress reminded me that I was working on something like that a few years ago. We work with a lot of artists, why not develop a booklet much like this example that lets artists sketch and then plays back their sketches for viewers? Rather than looking at pictures, you could travel back in time, watching the drawing styles of your favorite artist evolve. Is this the future of blogs, growing to embrace more and more kinds of media?
