Old Man Left Working: session 4

Weekend four... not much work done on this one. But now I feel obligated to post whenever I get any work done on this just to show I wasn't just parking the entire weekend on the sofa watching ncaa basketball.

Week 2 progress... not much during the week, maybe a couple of hours total, but hit it hard Saturday afternoon and Sunday. My goodness this is a slow and tedious process, but I feel good at the progress and results.

Old Man Left - new piece, work in progress day one

Started a new piece to keep me occupied while my knee heals. And I haven't done anything of any real size for some time, so I am working a digital pen and ink drawing. This is all in photoshop but it is drawn one stroke at a time.  The size will be about 21" x 21" when completed. This is session one from last weekend. Fun stuff.

how long

I watch the water slowly creep up around me, I move to what I believe to be a safer place on the boat. I try to convince myself that situations can be changed for the better, that perseverance can overcome many seemingly insurmountable obstacles. I pass the Captain. The Captain doesn’t say the boat is sinking, that all we have done is for not, to go and try to save ourselves. The Captain designates who gets thrown overboard to temporarily lighten the ship.

I have seen many thrown overboard. Some went willingly, some went with sad faces and some fear as to what was to become of them. I wonder how long can they last in that cold water?

To quote Robert Louis Stevenson’s Long John Silver; “Them that dies will be the lucky ones.” I fought against that manner of thinking. Do what you can to survive, to make it work.  Now perhaps, looking around at the sinking, crumbling vessel that was once a mighty ship…. I wonder how long before the Captain points and signals that I am to be sent overboard.

Doodle United: Adjective Snowman

For the first Doodle United of the new year, we got the assignment of Adjective Snowman, in honor of the great Bill Watterson, Creator of Calvin and Hobbs... specifically "Snow Goon strips" We were given a link that is a random Adjective Generator.

We were to Set the Limit to '1,' and hit refresh. The adjective that was generated we were to place in front of the word Snowman, and BOOM. Draw it. IT was fun.
