I’ve been drawing life enhancing caricatures in Ocala! – August 17th, 2017

by on Aug.18, 2017, under Caricatures

I’ve been sick this past week and worked to get better for work to do and two events Thursday and Saturday.

I was fortunate to draw for an assisted living facility Thursday. As always, i hear so many wonderful stories. Here are a few and their stories….

A note of the photographs: Had something fading out most all I took. Sorry about that.

Kathryn long hauled bananas for a couple decades back when few women were on the road in a cab by themselves for days on end. These days she crochets.

Gloria’s family goes back, far, far back in Florida history. Family owns or lives on the islands in the Suwanee River. She isn’t able to get back into the Florida wilds she loves and misses fishing. These days she likes to play the organ.

Jessie is a Scottish lassie who loves cards and clowning around. Even her brightly colored attire reflects her playful fun.

Earl is full Cherokee. He mentioned his displeasure with how things have turned out for the Cherokee. Otehrwise, Earl struggles with what to say and his memory. I have him in the early 1800s in Tennessee approaching an American Army encampment.

Debbie has a number of things she likes to do, like reading romances. She also loves watching old western TV programs, like Maverick, Laramie, Tales of the Wells Fargo, etc.

Been whipping up some life coaching caricatures in Cocoa Beach, Florida, Saturday for a private event.

Artwork done today! – June 10th, 2017

by on Jun.10, 2017, under Caricatures, Cartooning

The folks with the event last night were very kind to have me in a hotel in Tampa. So, today I spent the day working on a special illustration for, the emcee last night, Niger Innes, finally finishing the painting of a couple and two Swampy’s Florida celebration cartoons.

Most were done in the near little seating area of Alessi Bakeries in Tampa. Got one of their fantastic sandwiches and went to work!


Cartoon Gratitude to Niger Innis for his work making the Hillsborough Lincon Dinner a success and the great conversation I had with him.

GOP Lincoln Dinner Fun in Tampa – June 9th, 2017

by on Jun.09, 2017, under Caricatures

Had a great night drawing some life coaching drawings and spending time with some great folks in Tampa tonight!

This is the powerhouse of a lady that made it all happen! Deborah put together the 2017 Lincoln Dinner with only weeks to do it due to the scheduling of the great Dr. Ben Carson.

Robbin howled with laughter at her drawing depicting the many travels in barges she’s made with her husband.

Elizabeth really spelled out to me how her heart and soul is put into the causes she works in.

I got to meet and speak at length with Niger Innis, the emcee of the nights event and celebrated political activist. — at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre.

Carey is really a Florida girl fishing off the shore or the bridge in Matlacha, near Fort Myers. Hunting is also a passion. — at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre.

Jamey’s job protects us from the super bad guys out there! — at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre.

Got a chance again to say Hello to Adam Putnam! His speech tonight was perfect! The crowd loved him! — at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre.

Among the paintings I’m behind with due to too many difficulties last year is this of Seminole Wars Naval reenactor Kim Ceullers. Kim travels around, in between his work, and speaks and re-enacts various times in 1800s America. He was a speaker for a museum I’ve been involved with. This is a Thank You for his speaking.
