Detective Frog I painted a few years ago for my father…. January 5th, 2017.

by on Jan.05, 2018, under Illusration

Thought I’d post one of the annual paintings I’d do for my father’s birthday, which would’ve been today. Each had some kind of frog in it. This one a hard boiled detective after the bad guy.

I’ve been Coloring Santa! – September 25th, 2017

by on Sep.26, 2017, under Illusration

…and I have a lot more Santa to color, too! Getting ready for a trip this weekend to Pensacola and realizing I can’t get this book done until after I return. Still trying to settle down after the hurricane and a sick kitty. Too much household work to do, while trying to tend to this Christmas book. More art to come!

I’ve been drawing Santa Claus… – August 27th, 2017

by on Aug.27, 2017, under Cartooning, Illusration

Today started with me feeling like I got out of the wrong side of the planet. I so very much planned and wanted to go see my friend, musician, cartoonist Roy Schneider perform today in Winter Park, Florida. It was even per chance organized by fellow former Orlando City Hall colleague SusieCool Foster-Trewick, who is also a musician.

But the realities of getting projects done and the deadlines involved did me in. That and the mortgage payment due in days. I had a LOT to draw and little time to do it in. So, instead of south to Winter Park, I headed north to Gainesville to a place that has consistently been a location I get tons done and done pretty well: Lollicup.

Why do I even bother to try and draw anywhere else? What the heck is it about this place? I have no idea. But I got it all done with time to spare.

I also went in clouded in a surly mood. About an hour later a dose of Lollicup frozen coffee drink and a combo of Frank, Dean, Sammy and I was brightened again.

I’ll return in a day or so to ink and then there’s all to color in the studio.
