I'm ready to fly out now...

Hey all, here's a piece I did as a demo for my students. As you can see I start pretty rough with my pencils then add more details in my inks. I could still this design further by adding more to it all around....let see maybe I'll do just that. The class project for this term is doing redesign on the movie, "Sky Capt and the World of Tomorrow" The students are doing pretty well so far with this project...I'm hoping they keep it up....or I'll need to crack the whip on them.

This Wednesday I'll be heading down to San Diego to join in the madness which is Comic Con....hope you all can make it?

This Thursday, I will be at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects' booth(5563) to do a a doodle under the camera...for Sketch Theatre around 4pm.

Hope to see some of you there at the floor.

Thanks. Hey Brian, won't you be able to make it to Con?

I bet you LOVE how long it took me to respond, huh?

Sorry about that.

No, sadly, I can't make it. I live in Orlando and it would take quite a bit to make that trip :(

Waiting for your posts once you get back!

It is hard to believe that anything [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes cheap[/URL][/B] so inherently ugly as the MBT shoe could ever catch on [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] with either the younger generation or the fitness fanatics but it has. [B]MBT[/B] The shoes or I suppose they should be called trainers have thick curved soles and wide straps across the front. Currently [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] the are available in over 20 countries and have sold more than a million pairs a year. Considering that they have a price tag of around $200 it is even [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] more remarkable.

MBT shoes, which stand for Masai [B]MBT shoes[/B] Barefoot Technology were invented by Karl Muller a Swiss engineer. He [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] suffered back and knee problems but on a trip to Korea he noticed [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] that after walking barefoot through paddy fields the symptoms were relieved. With further [U]mbt sandals[/U] research he discovered that the Masai tribesmen from Kenya did not suffer back problems [B]mbt sandals[/B] and had perfect posture. Putting these two facts together he decided that [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] the answer was because they were walking on soft surfaces [U]MBT shoes[/U] which yielded as they trod on them. This [U]MBT shoes[/U] was unlike in Europe and America where we tend to walk on firm surfaces such as sidewalks.

The first MBT was manufactured in 1996 and soon [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] became popular on continental Europe. Since then many celebrities have [B]mbt sandals[/B] been seen sporting MBTs. The concept basically is that the [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] curved sole creates instability as you walk, which [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] mimics the effect of walking barefoot. To counteract this the foot uses muscle to counter this [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sandals[/URL][/B] and creates a natural body training effect.

These are pretty bold claims but there is no doubt that MBT shoes are [U]MBT[/U] popular both as recreation and sportswear. A study [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] by Sheffield Hallam University recently concluded that MBT shoes were better for the knees ankles [U]mbt sneakers[/U] than normal shoes. The study also concluded that if [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] you walk correctly you would take shorter strides while walking in MBTs. Shorter [B]MBT[/B] strides would mean more steps and more expending of energy and this [U][B]shoe for worked[/U][/B] would increase your calorie burn.
