I had a great day today. Spent the morning filming Catch Wrestling technqiues with Brian Cowell of Swift Kick Martial Arts. After working through the morning I talked to comic book ventran Mike Witherby on the phone for bit about inking comics and some of the challenges of inking backgrounds vs inking organic figures and characters. We also discussed Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix and a bunch of other stuff. The set of Prismacolor Verithin Colored Pencils I’d been waiting for finially showed up. I did some illustration work. A.J. Fulcher sent me a new page he penciled for Strength Monsters Issue #2 “Ultra-Mayhem.” I picked my kids up from school. Finally the highlight of the day for me was talking to Will Chung on the phone. Will is a guy who I can say with confildence is a genuinely intrested in connecting with people and using his skills and expertise to help them. We talked for hours about martial arts, training and all types of things. Will explained some of the training concepts he uses with the atheltes he works with and he completely blew my mind. Everything from transitions in sport, techniques for boxing, angles used in martial arts, opening up a joint, levels of difficulty within a movement far too much to go into and stay within the scope of this post. But it was great to connect with him and hear some of the stories from his martial arts training and his expriences working within the martial arts and fitness industries.
