Fit at 50

I know he looks more like he's in his 80s BUT the title has a nice ring to it this way. Click the image to view on my deviantART! Image opens in new window and looks better in larger scale.

will the circle be unbroken?

(While I'm gearing up to do an illustration for the new challenge word, I thought I'd post one of my favorite stories and illustrations from the past few weeks. —  JPiC)

2010 came to a close a few , but it began almost 35 years ago, when I was in high school. After getting tossed out of the majority of my academic classes, I gravitated towards the art department. There, among those paint-splattered desks and rolls of brown kraft paper, I felt comfortable and had as much a sense of purpose as a 16 year-old could. It was in one of those art classrooms I met Eric Dorfman. My relationship with Eric could best be described as a cordial, but distrustful, rivalry. We weren’t so much friends as we “got along”— always aware of the underlying atmosphere of competition between us. Eric was a grade behind me, but freshmen through seniors were lumped together in art classes to make up for the lack of full enrollment. Of course, the first thing anyone noticed about Eric Dorfman was his huge shocking red “Jew-fro”. He was short of stature with broad shoulders and a perpetual look of “don’t f*** with me” on his freckled face. He had a fast and determined gait and maneuvered through the hallways with his head down, like a bull on a mission. We passionately discussed movies and music with teenage fervor, sometimes even sharing a few favorites, but more often we disagreed. We did, however, have a similar drawing style, although I remember his being more advanced and refined and not nearly as crude and sketchy as mine. (I like to think I got better.)

Eric and I were also rivals for Lisa Holtsberg. I dated a lot of girls in high school and, although she was sweet and I liked her, my main reason for dating Lisa was that Eric Dorfman pursued her, too. Over an undetermined period of time (read:  I can’t remember), Lisa seemed attracted to each of us equally, unless she was just secretly enjoying being a witness to our animosity and the battle for her affection. Soon, I graduated from high school and I moved on, leaving Eric and Lisa (and many others) behind. Or so I thought.

Thanks for including me...

Here's my first submission...
 I try to do taichi or yoga but don't get around to it very regularly. My ladies are very good at it. This one is a bit hippy but she's so comfortable with herself it really doesn't matter....

Thanks Mike

Hey Mike,

Thanks for allowing me back after quitting Monday Artday. I kinda missed seeing all the wonderful creations of other people even more than posting my own!

Fitness for the new year

Here we are in January of another new year and the fitness resolutions are stacked to the ceiling!

This week's topic is perfect for this time of year. Man or woman, I bet a lot of folks out there know this feeling (myself included)...

I want to send a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to the host for approving my membership. This is my first post here and I look forward to participating and getting to know everyone!

Challenge: Fitness

American fitness guru, Jack LaLanne, has died at the age of 96. In his honor, let's illustrate something on the theme of:


Anything related to physical fitness. Let's see those illustrations, artists! One, two, one, two, feel the burn...

Monday Artday - Now a Major Motion Picture

Monday Artday... A major motion picture? No, not really. But it is something to be admired. Not just as an amazing place to find some great art and illustration from a huge variety of artists from all over the world, but as an interesting social experiment. The artists here have an astonishing knack for managing themselves when the host is absent.

Well, the host is back. Just a quick run-down of what's up. I spent all of 2010 treating a horrible intestinal cancer. Long runs of chemotherapy and 2 major surgeries. It's been very hard on me and my family but it all has a happy ending! I'm cancer-free and back to normal health! Now I can ease back into all of my passions (outside of just staying alive). So I'm diving back into Monday Artday and I want to thank you all for keeping it going while I was away.

For all of you that requested membership while I was out, I have approved your membership so look for an email from Blogger with instructions on how to log in. Looking forward to seeing all of you posting your fabulous work here!

Super - Madness

Going to one of those gigantic supermarkets with all those unnecessary product options and madness can produce certain side-effects, ask this poor chap.

The Cave

This an idea I have been toying with for a long time. I did this illustration for my own enjoyment but decided to submit it to Threadless just for the fun of it.

If you feel so inclined please check out the link:

I have not been to MondayArtday for a while and I am glad to see it is still going strong. I look forward to seeing more great work, from all of you, in the future.

Happy New Year!

I never got round to posting on here, been far too busy with university work, from which I am hiding at the moment.

Just thought I should post this, if extremely late, as I made this for the Train challenge from months and months ago. I think it's quite good.
