Challenge Met

Johnny Depp

Bear Grylls

Dave Grohl – Foo Fighters

A couple of years ago I was creating my photography and art blog for my Trends In Technology class and I wanted to include works from other artists that I know. I asked my brother Ted Simpson if I could post some of his pencil drawings. He consented but the problem was I didn’t have any recent work. In fact, all I had was work he had done from 20 plus years ago. So I challenged him to get back to the drawing board. The drawings he has created since that challenge are nothing short of amazing. Postings here are of some recognizable celebrities and two drawings of his beautiful friend Sarah. Challenge met Simpsonian (my nickname for him). I suspect next I will be posting some of his photography soon, right Ted?

In Memoriam, Victor Simpson

Eight years ago I put together a slide show of my dad for his 80th birthday which I ran on this site for awhile. I’m posting it again in memoriam of his passing two weeks ago. You were loved by many Victor. Rest in peace.

The Prague Gestapo Transform Peaceful Terezin

The Terezin Hungarian small fortress was built in the late 18th century as a fortress to protect Bohemia. Peaceful looking Terezin today belies it’s recent tragic history. From 1940-1945, the Terezin small fortress was used as a police prison by the Prague Gestapo, and the town of Terzin was transformed into a concentration camp. When you visit this historic World War II site you learn of the thousands who died in the deplorable prison and the more than 140,000 Jewish prisoners transported from Terezin to Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps. This prison was a “working” prison which meant everyone had to work hard. If you couldn’t work you were transported to Auschwitz. This meant most of the transporters were women and children. Many of the prisoners who remained at Terezin died as well, mainly due to disease spread by lice, such as typhus. Visiting here is an extremely sobering experience.
