When will Sidney Crosby come back?

That question has been on the mind of hockey fans for months now.  During this last NHL season Crosby  was putting up enough points that he looked like he was going to be up there with records set by the hockey greats, until mid season he was injured with a concussion.  Days turned into months and he ended up being absent for the rest of the season.

As his absence lengthened the gossip began. The hockey news filled with articles and blogs taking shots in the dark at his condition and his future in the NHL.  As a Penguins fan I try my best to contain my excitement whenever I see one of these headlines, but my ears perk up as my head fills with thoughts of goals and championships that could come along with his return to the hockey.  Until then fans will be patiently waiting.

Don Cherry

I've been watching the Stanley Cup Finals over the past couple of weeks and I just couldn't help myself, I had to do a portrait of the Legendary Don Cherry.  I'm sure some of you have heard the name before, he wasn't just a hockey announcer, but also was a player and coach. And well for better or worse his suits pretty much burn into the memory of any one who sees them. They are loud enough to almost make him seem quiet in comparison...

Being the ridiculous person that I am, I was pretty excited to make an incredibly loud image full of horrible patterns.

so here it is 4 minutes into the start of Game 6

after a long day of work is up and functional once again, check it out!


Here's a Portrait of Joseph Gordon Levitt from the movie Hesher. I found the character particularly entertaining, not just because of the bad role model wild metal head character he plays, but more so because of the non conventional savior he becomes to a family.

Though my favorite part was still the perverse metaphors he offers as advice throughout the film that leave you shaking your head but knowing they made sense.

Either way I was surprised at the stories ability to take something that at surface level is over the top,  screwed up, and full grime, and manage to have a touching story shine through.
