Several cartoonists banded together and created an interactive visual
and chat site utilizing the *free* Palace chat client software.
The artist I met who created it is Bruce Hanson: bruce

Last Friday I was taken on a virtual tour by the artists and had a
chance to sit and chat with them during their grand opening. I know they
would love to have you take a look, and you may be able to arrange an
online visit with your students and one of the artists.

In order to see this site, you need to go to:
http://www.thepalace.com/
download the free "client software"; register so you can do all sorts of
cool things like make your own avatar (picture to wear)... spend some
time getting comfortable with the program. When I first looked at it, I
just wandered around for a while, and asked lots of questions.

Once you have the software, you want to go to file menu, connect,
hostname:
palace.snot.com (ya, I know... but the people who made it say, you
cannot forget their location!)

I recommend trying to catch the artists there on weekend evenings.
By the way, you can probably find me between 9-11MST at
mansion.thepalace.com
Another great site for art and to talk to the artists is:
houseofmedia.com

See you in palacespace!
