A drawing I did for a young friend for my friend John Horrighs. I get together with John and Tom Orr of the opposite party of me each Wednesday morning to talk politics, history and alligators with unicorns! 😀
In a jam and oranges, apples, bananas and Little Debbies. The Shadow knows! Hahahahha… So does Fu Manchu and the Hardy Boys!
Welcoming in the 2017, remembering cartoonists Jack Davis & Duck Edwing and something about a horn.
Time to Wake Up! – and this’ll do it!
Was over at Twitter Tweeting during #TCMParty & saw “Joe Williams” trending. To me there is only 1 Joe Williams, one of my favorite singers. Posted this there and thought I’d share it here!
This during a Sinatra salute i remember. So many in this clip: Sinatra, Ella, Steve, Eydie, Carol Channing, Sean Connery, etc, etc,
I’m back on the road!I was off delivering cards within minutes of leaving Muffler Man of Apopka, Complete Auto Repair around 5pm. Thank you, Dray Coggin, for getting me out so fast so I could do more Christmas card deliveries!!!
One stop was to my Orlando High School Christmas Alumni gathering in College Park (Orlando). Passed along a few cards there. Here I am with Denise Lappe and Allison Campbell Thurston.
Allison and I were one of the few to be chosen at Edgewater H.S. to start a part-time job drawing caricatures (for me) and portraits (for her). We were literally pulled from the quiet life of school and thrown into the eager, hungry jaws of the tourism industry.
I thought I’d share this inked piece that i did Friday for a company Christmas card. Still have coloring to do.
Finally got a chance to be one around for some books and found a much needed volume invoking The Fisher House project I’m working on. I was having all sorts of trouble finding any good background of Florida Congressman Bob Sikes. A stop at a thrift store and I find his biography! Cheap!….and signed!
I’m Actually stopping for a bit at one of my favorite spots in Pensacola- The Drowsy Poet Coffee Company, INC. with a Snickers and there fantastic Rocky Road brownie!
Awesome event for the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast tonight! I was there presenting one of the newest Swampy books for The Fisher House to help young people learn about the home, Eglin AFB, other bases in the area and have fun doing it!This is director Mia Hughes, president Teresa Haverson, Swampy and me!
If you don’t know: The Fisher House is a free place to stay for families whose military service member of the family is hospitalized. The Fisher House in Eglin Air Force Base is one of 71 such homes.
Just finished being in an elementary school class here in Niceville, Florida, speaking all about Florida history. From Juan Ponce to Publix! Doing my typical talk consisting of running around the room, waving my arms and drawing, too. The drawing of Madeline is the collaborative drawing I did where everyone participate.
Inked a bunch of editorial cartoons today. Here’s a wee piece of one.
On a personal level: The past week knocked me out Monday. Got tire replaced today and celebrated Jacob’s birthday and preparing to be part of monster event Wednesday morning.
