Am I mad, glad or sad? Well, I'm all of them - sad, mad and glad at same time. Recently I read article from Comic Book Resource site about Mike Meyer who is a really true Superman fan and been robbed. He have a incredible Superman collections from comic book to action figure since he was 10 years old. Fully story at St. Louis Today site.

Sad - His Superman collections been stolen.
Mad - I'm very mad at theif who steal his collection because he's mental disability. That's plain stupid.
Glad - I can do something to cheer him up.

I draw/watercolor Superman as myself on 6"x9" watercolor paper over weekend.

Stress + disappointment + angry + yells + breaking apart + broken + damages + unstoppable + talk back + not follow instruction + not listen + argument + fight = 100% pure not healthy for our life and especially for marriage and that's my biggest fear.

Believe it or not, all that's cause from a child have extremely bad meltdown after been told no for not watch TV after 7pm or after finish dinner. We must stay strong, control our anger and not let your child controlling you who is the boss. No means no and period!

This piece I spend a lot of time from 2H 2mm lead pencil to Prismcolor markers to watercolor paint on 11"x14" watercolor paper. Three process - before watercolor paint, painted and framed.

I haven't decide to keep or try sell it. I'll let you know next week post with full details.

I remember on my 17th or 18th birthday, I received a discgolf starter kit from my brother and we went out to Grand Wood Park with some friends. It was very fun sport and has really great time. When we gets to course #6 "the water hole course" where most people lost their disc into the pond. One of my disc went into the water and want it back. So I swim in the pond looking for my disc. About 59 discs later, finally found my disc and bring home all disc I found from the pond. I never forget that day my brother laughing so hard I pull that many disc out the pond.
