Diary of an Art Pimp (2004–09) was Din's cheeky and anonymous art blog about a slice of the local art scene. The blog included links to artist projects, exhibitions and news. Din also curated and exhibited a series of art works under pseudonyms connected to the Art Pimp, (read a review by Mark Holsworth here). His identity was amusingly revealed in an article by Penny Modra for The Age newspaper. He wrapped the blog shortly after, but has sporadically written a collection of fictional(ish) art pimp tales ever since.
