The old timers here know Po'. He hasn't been very active for a while because of an accident (not his fault). For those who don't know him, "Po' and The Smedleys" (examples of his art) are in the picture above. A certain troll killer is on the sign in the background (taken from the panel of smileys - yeah, he's that good). You all should visit Po's Gallery here: http://wincustomize.com/explore/all/search/PoSmedley and especially his work in icons: http://wincustomize.com/explore/objectdock/search/PoSmedley .
Po's also an amazing story teller. You should read this: http://posmedley.joeuser.com/article/314532/Whats_Your_SIGN . The better stuff has been taken down due to Uxorophobia and Pentheraphobia (morbid fear of one's wife and mother-in-law).
By accident (a truly fortunate accident) a few years ago, I heard some of Po's music. I was impressed.
Today, Po' posted one of his music videos on youTube:
I thought it was beautiful, and wonderful!
There's another one there as well:
Po', your art (and Jack's) inspired me to learn Photoshop. I played the guitar long ago, but never came close to what you do, man.
I hope the procedure helps the pain long term, bud. I so hope it enables you to return to your passion: Your art. I miss it.
As ZubaZ would say, "Now maybe you'll finish that skin!".
Love you, Po' (in a manly sort of way).
