Phoenix IF

This is a phoenix I did some time ago. I used it in IF for Ghost also.
My favorite part of the Phoenix mythos is that it's tears can heal all wounds.

Men's Fellowship Logo in Colors

I enjoyed adding colors to this. I thought the chalice looked more distictive in wood tones than in metal. The oak leaves jock strap is from the oak trees at the two camps where we have our weekends. Also, oak is a symbol of strength.
For anyone who does not know the flaming chalice is the symbol of the Unitarian Universalist faith.
Leave your comments and let me know what you think of this or any other of my postings.

Men's Fellowship Logo

I'm trying to work up a logo for my Men's Fellowship. This is the black and white version for printed stuff.

This is just back in East Texas. I am taking target practice at the bank of a "tank".

There is something disturbing about this picture for me. It is the curly hair, the pistol and the dismal foliage.

Vicenza, Italy

This is me after being out of the Army for a few months. I had just returned to Italy after traveling around Europe.

War Pictures

On December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day, I was interviewed for the Smithsonian Veterans Project. The Project seeks to preserve the memories of U.S. Veterans from all eras.

The interviewers were two college seniors not much older than my truck. At one point I caught myself worrying that I was telling my wicked war tales to kids so young.

As I followup, I have promised to send Kate Lynn and Mellisa of San Diego State pictures of myself from that time and after. While looking them up I decided to post them to this blog as well.

This one to the right is from about 1970.

Mask for Illustration Friday (IF)

I love masks. People behave differently when they have something disguising their faces.
Even masks by themselves have their own life. Like some disembodied persona.
I had created this face for another drawing.

Might IF

I was not excited about this subject matter but I think I got some "shock and awe" out of my system.
