Day 3 cartooning people’s lives. This time in Tallahassee. Sun got the best of me. That and maybe a few hundred miles of driving over past 48 hours.
So, tomorrow: Time for some Florida exploring and hiking.
Oh, and great to hear from my pal Jackie Mia Joyner today! Glad to get a Lala update!
Lots done in 3 hours at this coffee shop! Finished 1 painting, almost finished another, started another #Florida one plus sketches for a client….and STILL way behind!
My neighbor has been a HUGE help this past year doing many things including helping to remove a fallen tree in my front yard – a HUGE tree. During his Fall Festival (AKA Halloween) Party I participated by drawing some of his guests.
Jonathan (Above and below) told me much about himself. I decided to make this more a novelty item and have his love of Batman and dragons coalesce.
Anthony (Above) enjoys researching Christian biblical ideas.
Jennie is involved with arts and crafts from painting to making beaded jewelry.
#INKtober #24 – Been doing the caricature thing here in Downtown St Cloud for a wedding! Found a fellow who’s also a big old movie buff. Especially the gangster flicks.
This woman is AMAZING! She and her husband raised 10 children – 6 adopted while both having full time jobs AND volunteering for organizations!!! She and her husband moved to our state of Florida and, unfortunately, her husband died. Now in retirement, she finds herself still in the mode of her earlier life filling all of her time volunteering and still raising two of her children. Here’s a mother of the century nominee! — at Downtown St.Cloud.
Today would have been Groucho’s 125th birthday and I am a fan! Have been since I was a wee child. I’ve seen all the films, listened to or watched most all of the radio and television programs. Got most all of the books (including different editions). Even Groucho toys! A photo of a small part of my Groucho collection below.
Monique tells of her family’s trip along the Silver River this past weekend. Including being terrified when she found monkeys along the way! I explained of how monkeys got loose during filming of Tarzan films in the 1930s and that their descendants live along the river today.
Dotty enjoys oil painting landscapes of her native Pennsylvania these days.
Jaime rescues squirrels, loves horses and hates spiders!
Just finished a little less than 2 hour Cartoon Hunker Down session and knocked out cartoons for Swampy’s Florida, editorial cartoons and a pencil drawing for a children’s book. More to come this weekend.
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.)
Drew a wonderful group of older folks today. Including Joan Kelly who, along with her dancing partner, were entertainers for the USO and performed for troops waiting to go overseas during WWII. She tap danced and sung at bases in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Hard to imagine all of the joy she brought to our brave soldiers. She’s one of my heroes!
