Busy Day in Orlando! – June 21st, 2017

by on Jun.22, 2017, under Buddies, Cartooning, Florida History!, Friends

Wednesday was a day in Orlando that didn’t go as planned. Missed a meeting of my favorite group, Orlando Remembered, a couple of my oldest friends, and more. However, I did have a powerful day with other meetings!

Great getting with pal Charles Treadwell at Hot Dog Heaven talking cartooning! Next we meet, we’re gonna motivate ourselves and get some cartooning done! Anyone want to join us?

Getting with Shirley Cannon about a mapping project and seeing her great success of developing the new Pine Castle Historical Society‘s ‘Pine Castle Historical Museum’! I’m going to help her get her museum library logged in and organized.

Next getting with the wonderful Bettielee Sansone to receive some incredible items passed to me by a great lady Dianne Sarchet. Dianne wants me to take care of some of, her late husband, Corb Sarchet’s books and a few other items. Including an amazing spear, hand made by Corb. Sadly Corb died in 2015. Colonel Corb Sarchet was a true American patriot who well served our country in the military, chronicled our military & western American history and juggernaut of Downtown Orlando’s success in the last half of the last century. I am honored to receive these items and will be sure all will be in a good home.

Finally my last meeting to talk politics with Robert Bauerle, Huge thanks to Robert, who recognized I had become overheated in the Florida 100 degree heat and needed to stop and get better hydrated and have a good meal before the two hour drive home! I admit to making the mistake Wednesday of overdoing too much…again!

Now on to getting a whole bunch of artwork done!

Just finished inking and preparing to color tomorrow’s Swampy’s Florida Celebration Cartoon. You can see what it’s all about and the color version Sunday!

Notice the name on the boat – Ona? Anyone know where Ona, Florida, is? I was supposed to be in the area of Ona at Solomon’s Castle today for a Florida water conference about the problems of the phosphate industry. Had to stay put to get work a boatload of projects. I’ll be posting more later.

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.

On the Road – Political Bar b Q, Suwannee River, live Oak & artwork done!-May 20th, 2017

by on May.22, 2017, under Cartooning

Saturday was another tiring & Very hot day. Started at a Florida political rally with lots of local bar b cue & vegetables in North Florida. The event being near springs, I headed over to visit a couple parks along the Suwannee River. Got a bit over heated and headed to, the nearest city, Live Oak and noted a few of the many historic spots I’ve seen before but never photographed.

From there headed south with a stop in Gainesville at Lollicup tea & smoothies. A favorite stop to get some cartooning done.

Ralph Smith’s Captain Vincible comic strip from 1985 – April 18th, 2017!

by on Apr.18, 2017, under Cartooning

I was getting an ad for my Swampy’s Florida Tuesday post. While pulling the advertisement from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, I came across a Captain Vincible comic strip by my friend Ralph Smith. It’s hard for folks to realize the hundreds and hundreds of strips that are produced and seen for one day and then never seen again. So, here you all can see this one again or for the first time!
