2007_10_19.naz.jpgClear your afternoon: Gapers Block's own Naz Hamid is facing off against Chris Glass in another round of Layer Tennis from our pals over at Coudal. Whew! That was a lot of internet in one sentence. The match starts at 2pm. Go Naz!

Qué es Layer Tennis? It's immediate, competitive--but classy--design! Like the inside of Wes Anderson's brain, only less affected and without possible subtle racism. The artists swap a file back and forth; each gets 15 minutes to riff before sending it back. After 10 volleys, the peanut gallery plus the Coudal gallery declares a winner, who is then showered in glory.
