Hi Folks,
I bought the first Remy Presas portrait at the recent WMAA Spring Camp. As you may or may not have known, Tim Hartman commisioned to have a portrait done by none other than Edmund Parker, Jr. If you haven't seen his artwork before, he is VERY good. There is a recently published book on Kenpo and many of the senior players which has his protraits in it. Anyway, Tim unveiled the portrait at this camp and presented one to Dr. Gyi as well as another one for an award.

This portrait is going up on the wall in my shcool next to a picture of my first instructor, Loren Christensen, and my current instructor, Manong Ted Buot.

Yours,
Dan Anderson
 
The new portrait of the Professor was awarded to my student and very good friend Mark Berk. He was given this honor for his dedication to the WMAA and for his behind the scenes work in helping the organization grow. He was also given a portrait of Datu Hartman that was also done by Mr. Parker. They are true works of art and will be prominately displayed in our dojo. The Professor is always in our hearts but is nice to see his face as we train. It kinda makes to try harder.

I would like to thank Datu Tim for having these portraits done and also for the way he treats his students and instructors - With Respect and like family.

Definately worth having whether you are in a Modern Arnis or a Parker Kenpo lineage. I was lucky enough to get out of Buffalo with a signed print!
 
Mr. Parker is a -very- tallented artist. He has done some terrific works of many of the notables in the Kenpo world, as well as of his father, the late GM Ed Parker.

Mr. Parker Jr. also designed the WMAA black belt certificates.

You can see a sample of his work here: http://www.geocities.com/edparkerjr/ which currently has a self-portrait up.

Anyway to post the portraits somewhere to share with the rest of us?
I looked at his self portrait and thought that it was outstanding and really raised my curiosity as to the background scenes. I saw the BB certificate when Datu Tim was out here at D. Wrights a couple of years ago, it was a piece of art!

Yes, the Remy Presas portrait is great--the smile really captures his personality just so.

Sadly like his home website, this page is incomplete it does not go anywhere but the main page. :wah:

I would like to purchase a 8 x 10 portrait of Mr. Presas. I know the one displayed at the WMAA was colour do you know it there's a black and white version? All the other Ed Jr. Portraits I have are black and white and I would like to complete my collection.

If Anyone is in the Michigan Area, I also got a signed copy out of Buffalo and through the Canadian and US Customs :D. I can let you see my copy.

It is worth it in my opinion.
