Get The Picture

 "Part of that patched up, crippled up, gone, graduated, sunk, secondary." Larry Munson.

A Work in Progress. 

I got a chance to meet Larry when I did "The 12th Man." Went to his house - we talked fishing and he signed my prints. I felt like I was talking to the radio. I cherish the memory.

No matter how many times I hear it - I get chills when he begs Lindsay to run. I remember pacing the floor in my bedroom and praying right along with Larry for the Dawgs to "Hunker it down one more time." Because of Larry. I remember where I was when Butler kicked it 100,000 miles to beat Clemson and when Herschel "broke the all-time record for a freshman back, 64 or 65 yards" and on and on.

I loved Larry Munson!

Game One Tonight




Love this time of year -World Series and College Football. I expect the Rangers to win the series but I (almost) always pull for the National League. Either way I would like to see a game seven - there hasn't been one since 2002.

Particular Set of Skills

Played around and finished this today. I love the movie "Taken." I especially like when he tells the bad guys "...I have no money, but what I do have is a particular set of skills..."

Quick Caricature of Herschel

I did this quick sketch a few months ago as an idea for a UGA magazine cover. It was not chosen. They wanted a more serious cover. Painting and sketching digitally like this has helped me move faster and grow as a painter.

Bert "Be Home" Blyleven

Morning sketch of Bert Blyleven. He made it to Cooperstown yesterday. ESPN's Chris Berman nicknamed him Bert "Be Home" Blyleven and as a recovering Richard Pryor fan it is one of my favorites. I would add "and bring me back a paper." Now I'm off to the easel.
