Welcome to The Hipping Post, my experiment in sketching, painting, and writing.
THP started in 2011, as a way to update my friends and family about my hip resurfacing surgery. My surgery was a success, and after a while, I didn’t have much more to say about my hip. But I enjoyed writing, so I wrote about other topics that were on my mind.
THP must have tapped a creative vein, because for some reason, I felt the urge to draw again – something I had not done since high school. So in addition to writing, my posts now include some of my sketches, drawings, and paintings.
The Hipping Post has evolved from a story of my hip resurfacing to something entirely different. The name of my blog may be less relevant today than it was when I started, but I like it, so I’m sticking with it.
I categorized the posts about my hip under “Hip Resurfacing”, so please click on that category if you are interested. If you would like to contact me, please email me at: doug(at)dougbodel(dot)com.
The Hipping Post may evolve further, but if you enjoy my posts, I hope you will continue to visit.
