Sleeping Cat 2

It seems whenever I sit down in a comfortable place to get some work done, my cat likes to join me. I don't mind it at all, except I'm very quickly distracted by this fur ball, and the work I intend to do gets dropped, replaced by some studies. I envy him for his ability [...]

Mr. Bob Cripps Honouring the fine people in my life

You never forget great teachers or mentors like Bob Cripps. I may have portrayed him somewhat grumpy in this sketch, but Bob Cripps was anything but a kind considerate gentleman. Pilot in the war,  sailor and architect in the years that followed, Bob was someone to whom I looked up to for his quiet wisdom and [...]

Arms and Forelimbs, Human, Polar bear & Seal

I just spent Saturday morning studying the Extensor muscles of the human forearm.  It is truly fascinating to see how all the muscles that extend both the hand at the wrist and the fingers originate on the bony prominence of the humerus called the Lateral Epicondyle.   In a similar way, all the flexors originate on [...]
