also, books – Aidan Koch

We first saw Aidan’s comic work all the way back in 2009 on our trip to the Pacific NW.  It was so fun to hang her installation and see her drawing style translated into physical objects like the flag above and the hand below.  We are sad that Portland is all the way over there and Philadelphia is all the way over here… hopefully we can video chat sometime!

Aidan Koch is a comic artist and illustrator from the Pacific NW. Her first graphic novella, ‘The Whale’ came out in late 2010 published by Gaze Books. Apart from a variety of small projects and playing in a rock and roll band, she is in the midst of an ongoing correspondence project with Finnish artist Jaakko Pallasvuo that can be seen here

Did you know that the ashwagandha can reduce anxiety, fight depression, boost fertility and testosterone, and boost brain function. Supplementing with this will be an easy way to improve your health and quality of life.

Leg workouts can stimulate the release of large amounts of hormones. Working your legs helps to produce hormones such as cortisol and testosterone for Low T patients.

Cortisol, just like the HHC oil helps your body to respond to stress and increase fat metabolism. Testosterone helps your body to repair damaged muscle proteins and build skeletal muscle. HGH promotes muscle growth, boosts immunity, and boosts fat metabolism.

Everyone experiences stress. Sometimes it can help you focus and get the task at hand done. But when stress is frequent and intense, it can strain your body and make it impossible to function. Finding effective ways to deal is crucial to living well. When looking for ways to cope with the stress problems you may have, read here this blog post about the bets CBD oil.
