  • Since taking the training wheels off of Ian’s bike earlier this year I had been riding with him almost daily. It was always the first thing he would want to do after coming home from school and it was a highlight of my day as well. Soon enough he will want to head off riding by himself, but for now he’s only six and I need to stay with him.

    So anyway a few weeks ago Ian was hot-dogging on his bike and ended up breaking his right wrist. We had to find something he could do with a full-arm cast so I thought it would be great time to teach him what little I know about fishing.

    Now when he comes home from school the first thing he wants to do is grab the fishing poles and head down to the neighborhood creek and again it is the highlight of my day (here he is with his first fish).

    I asked Ian the other day what sort of picture I should make next and he said “Fishing!”. Now he’s always drawing pictures of the stuff we do together and giving them to me so I thought it only fair that I return the favor. My latest render, “Solace“, up now and is dedicated to my son. I may tweak a thing or two before I do the multi-screen (and I will post a Pickle Jar version without the people) but I am happy with where it is right now.

    I’m so blessed to have a job that allows me to take a break and be a Dad. Thanks to you all for making it possible.

  • Just a reminder: I am doing a little photo contest on the DB Facebook page and giving away some of the laptop/mobile skins that DecalGirl sent me last week. I will pick 4 winners and my Facebook fans can pick the 5th by posting the word “Vote” (or “Liking”) their favorite fan photos. The full info on how to enter is here.
