Treading Water

I am going to admit to you all now that I failed Red, which was the third level of swimming at the time. I don’t think they use a color system now, but I am sure they still require you to be able to stay above the water – or as those buoyant people like to call it “treading water”. I guess I should thank all my elementary school friends for having all of their birthday parties at the wave pool (a.k.a. Hell) because eventually I was able to teach myself to tread water.

I came across the work of Sam Green recently and despite my childhood of tsunami-like birthday parties, I found them to be quite beautiful. These are pencil on paper, folks. Real talent.

    yeah man! ILL work… really dig it. This is the type of art and drawing that inspired me to love art when I was 5 years old. My brother had fresh detailed drawings (not like this) but fresh style that inspired me! These are refreshing like a cold glass of water on a hot summer day (pun-intended). =)
