hi.. just droppin’ by your site.. it’s really cute… nice work!

WOW, so much stuff here, an excellent resource. Thanks guys!

Militant Bibliophile:

Being an engineering student, I REALLY like this one and the velocity picture. I think it's a very artistic juxtaposition of the human element and the mathematical. The choice of using a female form for velocity and a male for force was genius. Perhaps a whole Newtonian run? Please?

Vectors! Maybe the eraser string should tilt a little left, as if the guy were pushing it. :)


I know so little of physics that I'm a bit humbled by your compliments. Those were the only physics I could remeber from my HS days.

As for painting a whole Newtonian theme.....from me....well, I'll say this: A body at rest tends to stay at rest.


Militant B has a good idea. Lord knows, physics textbooks are dry enough. A little "John Cox" might serve as an inspiration to the students.


I remember you saying that [Edward] Hopper was one of your favorites. Maybe I'm imposing something on to what I see, but to my eye, I can really see his influence in a lot of your stuff (the lines, the wash-like shading).


Big Hopper fan. His emphasis on bold, geometric compositions along with the lone figures makes him one of my heroes.

Hey MB and Garanfan

Maybe you can suggest some simple physics equations/theorems.


If I might make a suggestion. Energy, and a depiction of children.

E=1/2 m* v squared.

Man, woman, child.

Moving work you've done.


"Moving work"....niiiice.

Excellent suggestion.
