Mick Rock - Rock Photographer

Sir Peter Paul Rubens - Sketches

Definitely one of my very favorite artists, in part because I love portraiture (mostly of people and animals -- anything with a pulse). And I think it's also the athlete in me -- I'm drawn to the energy, dynamic movement, and strength that Ruben depicts in his subjects.

Coco Sumner

Coco Sumner: lead-singer of broody-pop group I Blame Coco, and daughter of Sting.
No surprise that I'm intrigued - I'm a sucker for catchy tunes, and obviously the whole heroin-chic/androgynous-rocker look. Also digging her husky voice/vibe. Noticed she was opening for La Roux, will have to keep an eye on her.

A few videos, & some pics:

Cammi Granato: Hockey Hall of Fame

Big congrats to Cammi Granato for (finally) being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Captain of the '98 gold-medal winning USA Womens Olympic Hockey team, she was definitely a hero of mine.

Had this Wheaties box (sans autographs) hanging up in my room for years.
