This is a digitally modified version of the KOCK.rocks drawing with the URL and Info removed, as well as some smoothing on the sky. Punky Rooster is the mascot. Punk Rock Rooster with a pierced beck, a chain connecting to a safety pin through the wing and a rabbit's foot. Rooster is in black boots.
I started my internet radio station in 1995 as part of a college project. I streamed from my wide variety of music collection and called it KOCK BiPolar Radio. A Google search for “Punk Rock Rooster,” found a piece by Artist Aled Lewis, which became the mascot. I continued to stream on and off over the years as part of my domain at Thunderchild.net. It just so happened that my retirement and the domain names dot-rocks became available. I moved KOCK to ROCKS and and now at kock.rocks KOCK.rocks BiPolar Radio. I then sat down and made the mascot my own.
I grew up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I grew up exploring a variety of talents, crafts and skills, mostly to keep me busy and out of trouble. Been hyperactive since birth, keeping constructive didn't take much motivation. It also provided some income from time to time as well as under employment.
I also do pretty good at custom leather goods. Leather craft, carpentry are among the hobbies I picked up early. The motivation to make my own things came from Mom and Dad.
In my post Navy years in San Diego, California, I picked a leather business name and logo from my Partner at that time. Black Sabbath Custom Leather (BSCL) became my focus for a couple of years. During my time in Kansas City, I operated BSCL for making my own bike and riding gear and for some hobby income.
I'm now living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I'm allowing myself to pursue more artistic endeavourments on a daily basis. "Imagination is the only weapon on the war against reality."
My current long-term goals are to create a portfolio of new art and design sketches. Some will be for riding and bike gear to incorporate the support or protection needed from injuries. I'll be juggling those with my music radio/guitar project.
