Taylor’s Birthday! – June 5th, 2017

by on Jun.05, 2017, under What's New?

Happy Birthday wishes to Taylor. Hard to imagine 25 years has passed since that trip to the maternity ward which Taylor almost missed seeing as he worked hard to be born before reaching a hospital.

Had my annual Taylor Birthday banana split in honor and celebration of Taylor’s birth.

by on Apr.14, 2017, under What's New?

Another extremely productive few hours at Lollicup in Gainesville. Tight pencils for two illustrations, inked another, finished painting another and went from blank board to finished watercolor piece with another.
I’ll post individually along the way.

My work in progress: Ladybug!
The last few days I’ve been working on the finished versions of the children’s book coming up being named simply, ‘Two Wet Squirrels’. Besides the squirrels is a ladybug observing the story. Here’s the ladybug below.
 
The books should be ready next week and i should have some at the 36th annual Florida Antiquarian Book Fair next week. Also a reprinting of the Swampy’s Florida:Dunnellon’ book ready for next week’s Dunnellon Boomtown Days and work for developing the Apopka book.

Don Rickles – April 6th, 2017

by on Apr.06, 2017, under What's New?

I’m a huge fan of Don Rickles. Have been since I was a wee child. Got to see him a number of times live and will always be mesmerized by his improvisational abilities to link so many pieces and parts for such a long time. Just brilliant.
 
For some reason i ran Rickles clips last night while working. Looking forward, at the time, to his birthday, two days before mine. That won’t happen now, but, thankfully, so much of his work is still available to us today and forever.
 
I rarely, knowingly, missed a Rickles appearance on television. Surely I, at 11 years old, settled in for laughs during this Johnny Carson piece in 1974. Only to be bleary eyed in school the next morning. But caring the memories of laughter.

Joe Williams sings ‘Alright Okay You Win’! – December 29th, 2016

by on Dec.29, 2016, under What's New?

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,

On the road again & high school fun! – December 23rd, 2016

by on Dec.23, 2016, under Friends, What's New?

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.
