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!

Favorites I met at the Florida SpringsFest! – March 4th, 2017

by on Mar.04, 2017, under Cartooning, Swampy's Florida

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!!!
