To my devoted fans...

...all 3 1/2 of you.

Just wanted to post a heads up, I've switched from a Blogger based site, to one utilizing WordPress. There's a few nerdy reasons for doing this, none of them important to you. So it'll be a bit ugly and unorganized around here until I get this all figured out.

Have Fun!

Holy Sh*t! I'm Drawing...update

Look at the dates...

Started in August, worked on for an hour or so in November. I'll never have a "voluminous body" of work. Still? I'm happy. I've reached some weird stage of life where I'd rather make something, than excuses.

Color added with Prismacolor Markers. Gonna lay down large bodies of color like this, then go back in with colored pencils for detail, form, etc...you know all that artistic sh*t

Have Fun!

Holy Sh*t! I'm Drawing...

Mrs. MMS picked up a set of Prismacolor Colored Pencils on close-out at Hobby Lobby recently. I used to work with them a lot in college...so I got kinda inspired.

I just started this, and will post updates as they happen.

Cock of the Walk...

This shot was taken by my son using Hipstamatic on my iPhone. The original shot was really pretty cool...but me, being me, couldn't let it alone. I tweaked it a bit using Snapseed (again...on my iPhone). I think it turned out really nice.

I'm stoked on our collaboration.

Have Fun!

Visit from Bob...

My good friend Bob Loftin stopped in for a visit. We had the chance to visit a bit, hang out, eat, watch some tube, and most importantly...

Skate!

Granite Shoals Egg...

We visited some friends in Granite Shoals, TX. this weekend. The whole area is just plain filthy with Granite. Probably why it got it's name even. Here's a big granite "egg" that I thought was pretty cool.

Egg Case...

Here's a shot from the recent trip to Sanibel Island, FL. It's a Lightning Whelk egg case that washed up on the beach. There's, roughly, a zillion of them on the beach. I have no good reason for liking this photo...but I do. Probably just one of those, "Ahh, memories..." kind of things, but it's my blog so I can post whatever the heck I want to.

Looks like it's gonna be a long summer, but if I start rattling on about rain amounts, please feel to kick me in my graying nether regions...

Always an adventure...

Spring Break 2012. Family trip to Sanibel Island, Florida. Pretty normal fare right? You'd think...but we're involved, so there's gotta be a twist.

Yep.

After doing my daddy duty and making sure everyone (even me) went potty before we hit the road...we hit the road.

Unfortunately, even proper prior planning can't hold off the onslaught of two tankards of coffee.

I'm gonna take a quick break in this tale to assure you, my gentle reader, that this isn't a mud butt story.

So anywho...I'm doing the tee tee dance behind the wheel. We're devising plans to relief my misery, when suddenly the clouds part, and angels begin to sing. Actually it was just my lovely co-pilot pointing out the convenience store near the entrance to the airport.

Thank ya Jeebus!

A quick Starsky & Hutch driving move, and I'm across a lane of traffic, into the parking lot, out of the car, and trotting as quick as bladderly possible into the store.
I spot the men's room and make my way through the jerky displays towards urinary nirvana. Grab the knob...Shazam! Unlocked!!! I open the door to see something I won't soon unsee.

There was, in what I'd hoped to be my fortress of piss solitude, someone already there. But not just someone taking MY piss...this someone was taking a leak using his left hand, whilst scratching a lottery ticket with his right hand!

I backed out of the john, as quickly as I went in. I waited. Finally...a flush...hand washing...an the door to my relief opened. Dude, sorta scowling, walks by. I'm in like a flash.

This was an eyes rolling back in the head, pee-gasm.

After my sight returned, I noticed the lottery ticket in the trash. Obviously a loser. Made me wonder...was he mad I had interrupted, or was it that his dreams of a bathroom generated fortune were dashed?

Not my worry I reckon. There was a plane to catch.

Have fun!

The Man in the Mirror...*

I've known this sumbitch most of my life. I've laughed with him, I've cried with him. I've loved with him, I've hated with him. My best friend, my worst enemy. We've put in a lot of miles together.

I've recently come to a startling realization...

If I can get along with him...I can get along with anybody.

(*Author's Note: I promised myself when I started doing this thing that I'd avoid at all costs any display of "tortured artistic soul" kinda crap. Cut me some slack on this one and I'll try real hard not to let it happen again. Deal?)

Have Fun!

Rambler Deluxe...

I took this one the same day as the rest. Missed it as I was going through the batch

My dad had a Rambler when I was a kid. We used to coast down the hill behind the hospital when it was a dirt road, the Rambler in neutral.

Holy Ground...

Sefcik Hall.

More correctly, Tom Sefcik Hall.

It's safe to say my life was forever altered due to the adventures, misadventures, mayhem, romance, drunkenness, and generally complete disregard of matters legal, or moral...that happened in this building.

Bonds were forged that will never be broken in this building.

I learned about "Rock n F'n Roll" in this building.

It is Holy Ground.
