    Thumbs up

    Hi Glen,

    I love the look of this so far!

    I think the term you are looking for is heavy bag, a body bag is something one is taken to the Morgue in. Hope you had a wonderful Holiday! cheers, david

    Good morning David...Hey, Thanks,..and I hope your holiday was a wonderful one also..Mine was nice and peaceful..just the way I like it..I even got to see my 2.5 year old grand son playing with his new christmas toys out in San Francisco via skype..while i'm sitting here in Boston....Got to love alot of this new technology stuff..Amazing

    About the body bag..LOL..You are right..It should be heavy bag...Thanks for the correction... I don't know where I came up with body bag from...I 've always called it that..Must be a weird metaphor implanted in my mind somewhere along the line many moons ago..
    Take Care David..and I hope you and yours have a Great New Year ahead of you my friend..

    Hi Glenn,

    Glad you had time with your Grand son, Skype is wonderful ... a magic carpet! We have "dinner" every evening with Elisa's Father in Argentina, he is 87 and for him it is magic!

    We also had a quiet Christmas. Our Son Pablo is finishing up shooting for his documentary in Buenos Aires, he also got to spend time with his Grandfather!

    All the best to you and your family! Cheers, David

    Thanks David
    Yep that Skype is some heavy dudy Magic for sure..It will be taken for granted by the younger generation coming along, but for me, Ill always remember being taken to Disney Land as a young kid when it first opened up, and going into the Home of the Future exhibit and seeing the person I was talking to on the phone that they had as part of the exhibit...It seemed at that time to everyone at that time to be like some far off in the distant future and unlikely possibility..Just another Disney Fantasy..but here we are today, and it has become reality..Just goes to show you,...you never know..
    He also had a Monorail system in place that took the place of cars and highways,..and a people mover conveyer belt system that ran along side of the sidewalks..simmilar to what they have in alot of the larger airports now...Too bad those inventions haven't been put into practice at present...Sure would solve the need for oil, cars,highways,..and all of the pollution,road rage, congestion that goes nowhere fast at a snails pace, global warming and wars..Dam oil companies to an oily hell and all of their constiuents anyway..
    Someday Disney's future plan for mass transportation may be realized,...but not as long as the oil companies and their constituents are in power and calling the shots..
    Funny how one thought like Skype can lead to another thought..

    Great to hear about your son,..What type of documentary film is he working on..Just curious on my part..
    Thanks Again David

    hey glenn, sorry about not getting to you I've had a lot of freelance work thrown at me at once, but I still do intend on our chat, especially with the direction I'm going down.

    Love the white back ground. Theres something really nice about that silhouette. I love it actually now that I look at it. I'm fascinated by silhouette (thats the commercial artist speaking now haha) really cool.

    You should try a glove study and throw that into the mix

    Hey...Thanks alot guys.

    FramedWorld..Looking forward to that chat..No rush though,.I know how the holidays and work on top of that can be..Luckily i'm out of that loop....Hey..Congrats on that illustration of yours by the way...Well deserved..It came out GREAT man..

    Michalis..Glad you enjoy that one...I'll probably end up cluttering the scene up with everything that comes to mind as I have a habbit of doing sometimes..but hey,..gyms are cluttered..yes..LOL ..Besides,..It's all just good fun, and good practice...plus pushing the envelope keeps me interested by always creating problems that need to be solved..

    David...Funny,..That photo of the gloves on the bed that you posted in here a couple of pages back came to mind as soon as I read what FramedWorld wrote about doing a piece with gloves..I think that photo captured a great feeling in an uncomplicated visual statement..I will for sure keep that mood in mind when I do a piece on gloves..
    Thanks Again guys..Much appreciated..

    Hi Deke ...Hey..Really glad to hear that I brought boxing back to like for you......Maybe in these times, the world is just plane missing a true Champion..Myself,I haven't seen one since Mohammad Ali ...He united people from all around the world in causes that were greater than himself, and did it by doing it in the ring and out of the ring also, with his stance against the war in Vietnam and all war in general....Before him, there was Joe Louis who in defeating Max Schmeling from Germany, showed the world that Hitler was wrong in his belief that he had created a super race of humans...and before Joe Louis there was Jim Braddock who in the time of the Great 1930's depression gave a feeling of hope to the average working class people who were in dire straits at the time that hey, a lost cause can still become champion, and can do it in spite of dispair..Boxing had a powerful symbolic purpose and strenght which united and gave strenght to the working class underdog...something which is lacking in these current times unfortunitly...But hey,..who knows what lies ahead,..maybe a New Champion will emerge from the shadows when the world once again becomes truely in need of one..who knows...It's a one in a million longshot..which always has been the case when it comes to boxing..and true Champions of the People.

    About the book that you mentioned...Only the shadow knows...
    Take Care Deke, and I really appreciate the visit, kind words and thoughts....Keep Inspired and Inspiring..

    Some more fun with this boxers gym this morning.
    Thinking about putting a pair of boxing gloves laying on a chair with a towel draped over the back of the chair..up close in the forground, in the right hand corner of the scene..will add more depth and mood to the scene I think..Like a little stillife to offset the action...might be interesting if done right..maybe..
