July 23rd, 2015 – My watercolor painting of Whitey Markle for the Silver Springs Alliance!

by on Jul.23, 2015, under Caricatures, Cartooning, Florida Outdoors!


Meant to post these earlier! This one of 5 paintings I did for the speakers at an event our group, Silver Springs Alliance, had back in May. As each speaker spoke I illustrated what they were speaking about. LAter I added watercolor.

Here’s the one for, Florida folk singer/Sierra Club leader/all around good guy, Whitey Markle. He covered a great deal of territory and it was fun for me, knowing the area so well, to poke further fun at it all in the artwork. Each painting is given to the speakers as a “Thank you!” for coming out and helping more Florida citizens learn more about our water problems in our great state.

(Been meaning to post more, but have been on the road again! Lots going on the next few days. I should be posting a lot more.)

March 29th, 2011 – Swampy’s Florida 1st Coloring Book!

by on Mar.29, 2011, under Cartooning, Florida Attractions, Florida History!, Florida Outdoors!, Swampy's Florida, Various, What's New?

This Friday, April, 1st, is the debut of the new Swampy’s Florida: Lakeland coloring book at The General Store as part of Downtown Lakeland’s First Friday event.

The coloring book has lots to color and learn about Lakeland’s history and great places to visit. I was able to price the coloring book at $3. If you’re in the area come by and say HI! and get a free drawing between 6 to 9pm.

All of this happening at a store that I think every town should have, The General Store. You can’t miss the rocking chairs outside! Also, if you haven’t met Downtown Lakeland’s infamous Sparky at The General Store, now’s your chance! By the way, that’s Sparky in the middle on the cover.
