Thanks tjost. I deleted the other and we lost one vote. Hopefully it didn't cost us the derby ;)

Such a pleasure working with the three of you. Pushes me to try extra hard to match your great contributions.

Well sit yourself down and get comfortable.
Since the first Revolving Door collaboration we have used a site called Stixy that enables everyone involved to upload images and files to a shared page, and then add comments like post-it notes.
- Initially a page was created to suggest and comment on possible design ideas.
- Anthropomorphic instruments was a favoured idea and Spiritgreen suggested a piano quartet, so he got the easiest one to draw as a form of reward.
- A new Stixy was created where we posted draft sketches, research, title ideas and shared our secret hopes and fears, much like you would in a private diary.
- As each person's first character sketch appeared it instilled panic in the rest as we were challenged to match the quality. It also helped to iron out issues and ensure the four parts worked together.
- The first finished character was actually completed an hour after the derby started and the last one came in about twelve hours later. We clearly need a project manager.
-Various mock-ups for different layouts went up and discussion occurred over colour choice and the all important title. Decisions were made based on general consensus. We had tears a couple of times and only one punch was thrown. This didn't really matter much because two of the team are in America, one in the UK and one in Australia.
- This is what we learned:
Boots learned how to tell the difference between a violin and a viola (You'll have to ask her)
Spiritgreen learned how to draw 'goofy enthusiasm and a lack of class'.
Tjost discovered that knowing how to draw blue furry puppets does not make it any easier to draw stringed instruments.
PixelPants learned that lack of sleep and being out of his designing depth can't diminish the experience of working on such a dream team.
Thanks for listening. Story time is now over.

Thank you so much - that was exactly the sort of story I hoped to hear. And I love the title! Kudos to you all!

It's kind of like sexing a hamster. You can only tell if you look really close, or if one of them starts popping out babies.

Oh, it means DETERMINING the sex. That makes more sense. And is less disturbing.
