24601…Just kidding, my name is Rodney. Welcome to my blog! I hope you find my blog, interesting, inspiring, funny and maybe, depressing?
As my tagline says, my life pretty much revolves around family, art and my passion for fitness, mostly through bicycles.
Married for 15 Years to a beautiful woman named Barbara. We have 3 kids together (she has one from a previous relationship): a fierce, fashionable and friendly 14 year old Daughter, and two 100% male, jiu jitsu practicing, xbox playing, lego building 9 year old twin boys.
I am a Graphic Artist/Designer by nature, and an Art Director by occupation. I’ve been a working artist for 13 years, started doing cloud murals in peoples homes, in their nurseries to be exact. From their I studied graphic design while being a full-time Federal Express courier. Finally landed a part-time Graphic Design job and never looked back! I enjoy dabbling in all kinds of art (which you will soon see as i catch up on my blogging) from tattooing, used to do graffiti (which irritatingly now is called street art? what is that?) sketching, pencil drawing, pen drawing, acrylic painting and airbrushing. I’ve pretty much done it all.
On my spare time, when away from family and work life, my main escape, drug if you will is fitness. I enjoy circuit training, running, weight lifting, but what i mostly enjoy is riding my bicycle. I started out as a fixed gear rider. Fixed gear, not fixie. You can even say track bike, but please don’t call it a fixie! Then as the trend of fixed gear riding evolved, I took on the world of road bikes. I still switch between riding fixed or road, i take either bike out depending on what kind of riding i plan on doing that day or night. I enjoy and appreciate all styles of riding from bmx, cyclocross, mountain biking and even commuting, which I try to do at least once to twice a week. I love cycling so much that I (alongside of a good friend fellow cylist and artist) started Cycle Love Clothing.
That pretty much sums it up about me…but i’m sure you’ll discover more as the time goes by!
