My favorites I met Saturday at the Florida SpringsFest : These two little girls who took special sessions with the National Park Service to become National Park Service Junior Rangers. They carry with them their studies over the past few months and sport special badges proclaiming their achievements involving the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, Big Talbot Island State Park & Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve! That’s how to educate our young to appreciate our incredible history, heritage and culture of the great state of #Florida!!!
SpringsFest is this Saturday and Sunday, march 4th and 5th. I’ll only be there Saturday in the Springs institute booth and hope to see you all there!
Due to a couple of Swampy’s Florida books i had to get done, I’m behind with a ton of other work I’m working hard to finish.
Gave talks Monday and Tuesday to groups and “sign”ed books afterward!
Come out to the Florida SpringsFest this weekend on March 4th and 5th at Silver Springs State Park! I’ll be there only on the 4th to “sign” a FREE personal copy of my new book, ‘Aquatic Adventures” in the Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute booth!!
Taught a cartooning creativity class earlier today. I meant to get a photo of the drawing, hidden back there, i created from the answers i got from this small group, but lack of sleep got the best of me…in many ways today. 🙂
This drawing was for today over at my Swampy’s Florida to celebrate Saint Nicholas Day today. This is St. Nick meeting the actual Saint Nicholas. Didn’t have time to color it, so I’ll use it next year.!
Powerful evening getting a ton of different projects penciled and inked!
I’ll try to share more detailed versions of some of these later.
My Swampy’s Florida daily celebrations continue and tomorrow’s celebrates the Marines. I needed a model and so happens my friend Brent Schell graduated his first Marine platoon Wednesday. (Congratulations, Brent!) His wife Andrea Schell posted a photo of Brent in his uniform. A perfect model to ensure accuracy of my drawing to celebrate our Greatest American Heroes in the Marines protecting our country, like Brent! 🙂
Though maybe it shouldn’t get around the platoon that Brent was the model for a cartoon cat. 😀 The inked version is above.
It was great to see Lynette & Suzette Duncan Weddington at a party Tuesday night. I think the last time the three of us were together was during a play we did at Edgewater High School, ‘Dirty Work at the Crossroads’. Unlike myself, Lynette and Suzette have not changed a bit. Stephen Orth, who played the dastardly bad guy, likely remembers that triumph of us thespians! 😀
Otherwise, I volunteered my bit of humorous illustrative life coaching.
