No clocks, sound of the ocean, smell of sea salt, sipping a nice fruity drink with an umbrella in the glass. Jeez -- is it 5:30 yet?
I went to visit Adam again on Sunday and we played Mexican Train. (he won)
But Adam also had a chance to bring down some of his new pieces to show off. He intends to do a whole series of Obama/Old Testament scenes. Look forward to seeing the whole set when it's complete!
I've touted my friend's talent before, but I'll restate my claim. Angelo has some mad skillz and his brand of art-style is right up my alley. He uses clever use of negative space and exquisite extremes of detail to portray scenes from the futuristic story in his head. He somehow manages to capture a form's essence in a minimal set of lines. The poses and settings giving a mood set off with the colors chosen.
My first print was "The Drunk Artist Contemplates His Life". A self-portrait of sorts of the artist himself. Although all the art at the first showing I attended was great, this piece spoke to me and I related with it. It came home with me. read more »
Mom and I drove down to see the Badger this last weekend. It had been a long time -- the last time I was there was before all of the Rabbit games in the hospital.
He's good. Surviving and making the most of it. He has started running and does a few miles every day. Although he says he hates the running part, he's happy with the results of feeling better and healthier. I'll join in the exercise kick by doing my part and drinking more beer in order to better hold down the couch at home.
Adam had sent home a couple more pictures he drew. The three of us battling Kevin's cancer is brilliant. Check out the name tags. :)
