Michael Chang is right up there with Jordan as one of my all-time heroes in sports. That's right I chose my favourites by the shoes they wore. Watching Chang lace up those OG Victorys in this video made my heart PUMP.
I'm probably late on this, but I just discovered this online sketch tool called odosketch... its pretty darn cool. Not only does it save your drawing, but it also records your process. So you can replay it afterwards. Fun! There are quite a few good drawings featured on this site. I think I'll try doing my 5 minutes-a-day drawing exercises using this tool. Since you can just copy the embed code, it makes for a quick post. Can't wait to practice my tablet skills on this. Here's my first experiment using a mouse.
Growing up I participated in a bunch of different sports; basketball, badminton, tennis, volleyball, just to name a few. Each one affecting or inspiring me in many different ways, but I realized there would always be this one common ground. This one universal feeling of striving to become better, learning, working at it, and then eventually achieving those goals. Like looking up at the 10 foot hoop, visualizing myself leaping, flying up there with ball in hand, throwing it down and grabbing that rim hanging, savouring it for just a moment. I would look up and say to myself, "one day Rich, one of these days it'll happen." ...
These types of accomplishments for me, these "days of flight" certainly don't happen everyday. In fact when they do happen, it always happens in a flash and then its over.
