"He keeps his past to himself, but Rodd's always been running from something.

Former stunt driver, turned racing legend, Rodd has made a reputation built on risk.
But, he's finally risked far too much by involving himself and his love Susie with gangsters that want them both dead."

Each of the characters portray a bit of myself I suppose, different aspects.
Rodd, obviously, represents my most ambitious nature...or my most naive.

Hopes, and regrets. Accomplishments, and mistakes. All of the characters in Rodd Racer represent certain experiences in my private, or professional life.

As much as I like the character, there is alot I really dislike.
Of all the character's in the story, I think Rodd is the one I put the most work into, but is the least familiar to myself.

I've always loved old movie fights. The camera fixed several feet away, and we see actors jumping from one end of the screen to the other. The choreography might look a bit clumsy at times, but great moments...like Errol Flynn's Robin Hood, really paid off.
For me, in 1980, at 6 years old, that's what I imagined fights to be. Elegant...harmless.

My first real fight was in high school, nothing like Errol Flynn...

These pages were inspired by those old movie fights. 1930's gangster films that had some gritty fights, without the complex editing, or heroic musical score we have today.


Thanks to those that reminded me to update my blog.
more soon...
