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 and exhibitions reviews. He also exhibited a series of artworks under pseudonyms connected to the Art Pimp, (see artwork above or read a review here).

His identity was amusingly revealed in an article by Penny Modra for The Age newspaper. Din wrapped the blog afterwards but has continued writing a collection of fictional-ish art pimp tales that he hopes to release one day.
