I've been tagged. (Is there a cure?)

Click on image to enlarge.

I'm somewhat of a novice to the blogosphere, but this week I've found myself "tagged" by the Great Kate of Chicago. And what that apparently entails is that I post 7 things about myself, and then proceed to tag 7 others, and so on, until everyone in the world knows about everyone else. Well, here are my 7 things, but I don't know how to tag others yet, but I will, because I know if I break the chain, 7 plagues will fall upon the world, and a Republican will be voted in as president again.

Boulevard Bolt on Thanksgiving morning.

Okay, there's this Jew, a Baptist, and an Episcopalian. They get together, and they put on a race. Well, actually it's many Jews, Baptists and Episcopalians, coming together to put on a race in Nashville to benefit the homeless. The Temple, Immanuel Baptist Church, and St. George's Episcopal Church are putting on the 15th annual Boulevard Bolt 5 mile race on Thanksgiving morning. I had the privilege of designing and drawing the first shirt back in 1994, and again last year, for the 14th annual running of this race, with almost 8,000 participants!

Illustration Friday: Opinion

I know people who take it as a personal affront if your opinion is different than theirs. One definition I liked: Belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge.

Illustration Friday: Pretend

I drew this sketch of myself during church yesterday, where I was pretending. Or was I pretending to be pretending? Maybe I was pretending to be pretending to be pretending! Ouch, my head hurts...

The Trifecta is COMPLETE!!!

First: My daughter's high school soccer team defeated the evil FRA Panthers to win the regional championship! Second: The mighty Tennessee Titans defeated the Green Bay Packers to go 9-0! Third: Good guys win! Good guys win!!!

About the above illustration: I drew those angels for a book I wrote back in 1999. Ironically they are pumped about the birth of the coming saviour. Note that these are not Southern Baptist angels. When there is an illustration assignment depicting angels for LifeWay (Southern Baptists) you do not show wings, feet, or make it female. My publisher for my book was Thomas Nelson, and they let me be a maverick. Let's all get down and get mavericky!!!
