So, I was sitting at my computer thinking about what kits I could create when the phone rang.  It was my brother, John.  As we talked, I kept thinking about how my brother, Joe, always calls John "Henry." 

I don't know why, but, Joe has called John "Henry" for as long as I can remember.  When we were younger, he called him "John Henry" then at some point shortened it to just "Henry" (John's middle name is Daryn). 

Anyway, as John and I were chatting, I jotted down "Henry."  Then I started playing in PSP and thought of all the times John said, "I could bench you" when we were teens.  He started body building when he was about 13.  Before that, he was just as scrawny/puny as you could imagine.  But as he got into the body building, his physique changed.  And he started the "I could bench you" routine. 

By the time John and I got off the phone, I had the start of a kit.  I had a specific picture in mind as I worked, one of him flexing his arms.

Here is the picture:


And here is the kit, Henry, that it inspired:



And the layout that I made with it:


And this is John now:


He's not scrawny/puny anymore.  He can bench press well over 500 pounds, and yes, he can bench me!

Henry (the kit, not my brother!) is now in the store for just $3.99!

I've also put the Henry Quick Page in the store as a freebie.


You can snag it here.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!  And I hope John "Henry" doesn't get mad at me for posting his flex picture on here!

Be blessed!
