October 12, 2010. Many prayers are answered as the 33 Chilean miners are preparing to climb into that tight metal tube and be hoisted out of that dark hole that has been their home for 69 days and nights. Here's a sketch of a Pennsylvania miner from 1940 to celebrate tomorrow's rescue. God's speed to those guys!

thanks- this is actually pencil and black watercolor, which I like using together now and then.

Rob, I wanted to prove a point in a discussion with someone yesterday, about the necessity of repeated exercising to improve oneself; to prove my case I found back some of your old drawings (on skineart) and I compared them to yours today and I must say, you came a long way! That was only 2 years ago!
