Attended a political meeting near Interlachen, Florida, at Backwoods Smokehouse and sketched these folks. I was there to support Thuy Lowe, who is running for Congress and graduated with my sister in high school.

by on Aug.21, 2013, under Cartooning, Sketchbook

Our monthly Socrates Cafe meeting on Tuesday covered an assortment of topics. Above and below are a series of sketches about the topics brought up. The first was the struggle of selfishness. The second was about how open we should be about our private life. Then the question of where conscience comes from. Next a question of perception….

The next to last discussion was asking where complaints come from. Finally, the standard philosophical question of the connections of truth and beauty.

June 5th, 2010 – National Trails Day!

by on Jun.06, 2010, under Florida History!, Florida Outdoors!


Headed over to Silver River State Park about 5 miles. Above is a sketch from across the Silver River at the boat landing at the end of the River Trail.

After that I took the Fort King Military Trail. Below is a sketch from that I added color to.


At the boat launch all these little children were squealing about seeing a turtle. The softshell poked more of his head out and part of his body. He was a huge sucker. I pointed out to the little folks that the turtle was about the size of a little red head there and he was probably hiding under the launch to keep away from hungry gators. Their eyes got all big and scampered back so they might spot the shy critter again. Below is as much of the turtle I could get in a photo.


There’s more about this hike at Swampy’s Florida.
