The world has lost a Great Man, R.I.P. "Rocky" Louis Rocque, 1919-2002. We miss you terribly already and always will!
Well overall it was a pretty depressing holiday, didn't spend Christmas with my or my fiance's family and my Fathers best friend succumbed to cancer 3 days ago. Here's to hoping 2003 will be better.
Slight new look for the site for 2003, hope you all like it. Be looking for more Hyline All-Terrain Boards in the new year and a bunch of new digital photography, thanks to my new canon elph, wyrd!
Wow, lots has happened since the last time I posted. Had a lot of bad luck and news, but none as bad as the diagnosis of Cancer in a Family friend. Fight hard Rocky! We'll be praying for you!

Bob CongeVery similar to Ralph Steadman
The Bill Mayer
A few recent additions of my own (old stuff):
Stanley is back home in Detroit!!! The Krusty the Clown Prophecy has come true. The Red Wings really earned this one, they played great and truely are one of the best teams of all time! Carolina fans can take into account that their team did something both Philly and the Caps couldn't, win 1 game.
A few new artist links for yah, Good stuff:
Wow that Hex worked better than expected on those Nascar-heads! Wings have a chance for their 3rd cup in 6 years. As always too much Heart, Desire and Character on this team, Detroit Wins it tonight at Home, GO WINGS!!!!
Went to Mexico last weekend, Puerto Penasco or Rocky Point as it's called here in Arizona. Mexico always seems fun and depressing at the same time, but I've only been to border or near border towns.
Sorry for the down time of my site in the past few days, mix up with my bill from the hosting co., all is better now though.
The Wings will be back strong tonight! Here's a little Hex for Irbe, Francis and the BBC line: @%#345#i64&*rb#@e@#b#%b(7890c#!@#Fr3$@a@$n$%k@$*(S
Getting a quick little "Reboot" of the site done, more will be added in a bit..
Wyrd to yo Mutha's, The Detroit Red Wings are in the Stanley Cup Finals and 4 wins away from their third cup in 6 years, Come on guys let's do it again! Depth, character, heart and desire will get the wingys through this series as well, let's go Wings!!!
Holy crap I turn 29 in two weeks, man I'm getting old!
Well here comes game 7 back in Detroit in about 6 hours from now. The night the Red Wings won Game 6 I recieved a sign later in the evening that they would Triumph in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. The sign happened during an episode of "The Simpsons". Krusty the Clown bombs at a stand up comedy show and goes on a crazy bender. During his binge he drinks from the Stanley Cup! I saw this and was like HOLY SHIT!! The Wings are gonna win it all! One more game, one more game and they get the chance. Cow-O-wado had their dream season for Ray Borque, but now it is time for them to step aside for two more veterans that want it a little more badly, Dominik Hasek and Luc Robitaille (not to mention how much Yzerman, Shanahan, Hull, Chelios, Lidstrom, Federov, Larionov all want it). I'd like to put another curse on the weenies from the rockies, but I just HAVE to believe that The Detroit Red Wings have too much HEART, DESIRE and Will to let this opportunity pass them by, plus the curse below is a two game colorado curse, he he. LET'S GO RED WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!
And now for a little luck for the Wingys, and old tradition of mine, givin props to all the players, so here goes:Pavel Datsyuk, Boyd Devereaux, Sergei Fedorov, Igor Larionov, Steve Yzerman, Tomas Holmstrom, Kirk Maltby, Luc Robitaille, Brendan Shanahan, Kris Draper, Brett Hull, Darren McCarty, Chris Chelios, Nicklas Lidstrom, Fredrik Olausson, Mathieu Dandenault, Steve Duchesne, Jiri Fischer, Dominik Hasek, Manny Legace and for good measure, coaches too: Scotty Bowman, Dave Lewis, Barry Smith.
The Detroit Red Wings are battling the Cow-O-Wado Assholelanche tonight, Do or Die! Here's a little curse for Patrick Waaaaa and Foreskin = (#420^&f$*u666 $#k%!s@@ ##%@k&R+^o^ y$%i^&*n%). Shanny, Federov(Da Bozee), Stevie Y, Brett Hull and Lucky Luc are gonna get it on and score some goals tonight. Wyrd Hasek Wyrd! Wings back to Detroit for Game 7 on Friday, you heard it here first!

Well, got my two entries into the 2nd Annual Monson Snowboard design contest.
Here they are:
Well a ton of great designs came in. Very impressive stuff.
Well it's a few days until Christmas. It just doesn't seem right in Arizona, no snow, 65 degrees and sunny, weird!
I've been keeping an eye on the entries to the Monson Snowboard design contest and so far I think the designs were better in the first one. Obviously the quality will improve when the soon to be several thousand contestants get all their designs in.
Well It's been awhile since I've last updated. I've been busy over the past few months freelancing and looking for full-time work. Insurance is nice! :) New gig.
Here are a couple new funky illustrations
Monson Snowboards is having another Design contest. Only two entries per person this time. More to come on the boards.
Well I've updated once again. Even though I love the last version, I thought a simpler IA would be prudent for the main part of my site.
Things will be added to the site and corrected and changed, so please bear with me.
All the old fun stuff is still available for your web surfing pleasure, Here!
Another quick reminder, I am available for Freelance opportunities right now, book me now while you still can! ;)
