pilot project

It seems far more difficult these days to get the simplest things done...I wonder how the university researchers do it. They simply ask and things just happen. Not so easy for the rest of the world.

Davy Jones ...

This water color was produced for a children's book. I did the image on a 12x14 sheet to get the scale. Unfortunately the project was pulled... So I have this framed piece in my home office as a reminder that even your hard work can be tossed aside for reasons not often shared.

Still, It is good to let the world know that I still use traditional media to do the things I do.

Illustration FX

I wanted to do something a bit different here... An image in a sketch book that just seems to leap off the page. I liked how it came out. I think what I might do is a generic sketch book page in B&W and then do color images on top of that. For now this is what I'm Playing around with for fun.

Work out -- body change

I've committed my self to a very light work out style to fit into my life style. Now a year into my efforts I should share the work out.

It is simple...
Do something every day.
Do 10 to 20 reps of something every day.

Thanks is it. It is working. Even when I'm tired I simply can still do ten reps of something. It is pretty amazing. Though I have not lost much in the way of weight. My body shape has changed dramatically. Mostly in the upper body and a slimming of the lower abdominal s too.

What is more humorous is that my children are now saying things like, Dad Superman is stronger then you, or The Hulk can lift way more than you. Hard to argue that though I generally do my work outs between 11:00pm and 1:00am when the little ones are asleep...I'm not sure where they get their ideas from.

I still think I'm pretty average though. Working behind a desk for 7+ hours a day leave little time for other things. This seems to be working for me though.

Mostly calisthenics (Ladies call it Peladies or some such thing) though I do use smaller/light free weights at least twice a week to change up the intensity.

Being stronger allows for more options too. You can do more and want to do more. You need the mental toughness to really push yourself through the really weary days. The mental toughness is what I'm working on. As a parent your mind is often fatigued due to the constant push and pull on your time too. This is a challenge to over come. Being in the mind frame to improve fitness helps take on more and tackle more. I wish I could offer more in the way of getting more sleep between work outs and busy days though I have not solved that challenge yet.

Not my art but funny!

This made me laugh because it is so hard t deny. Now with a long slow recovery - You hardly can call the recession recovery that... When is the real salvation going to come through once and for all!
