#INKober #30 – Batman vs the Dragon!!! – October 30th, 2015

by on Oct.30, 2015, under Caricatures

2015-1030-Happy-Cari-1

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.

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.

#INKtober – Ist Entry! & an Offer of Free Art to You! – October 1st, 2015

by on Oct.01, 2015, under Cartooning

2015-1001-INKtober-HappyOlderPeoples

er – Ist Entry!
 
Here’s my first posting for the month long #Inktober, in which artists – if you want to call me that – exercise their inking muscles everyday. I’ll post something for #INKtober everyday here.
 
That got me thinking about presenting an offer: I can ink a drawing for YOU! No charge. I love being tossed a subject or situation and drawing it off the cuff.
 
So, you can give me a subject of an animal, basic situation, location, etc, and I’ll draw it and post it here. I might just take pieces and parts of what is described. Can’t get too complicated, which is why no caricatures. This is only for the month of October. I’ll try to get the original drawing to you. If noting else, you can get a good version that can be printed.
 
Go ahead and post in the comments section or reply here as you please. I’ll draw as many as I can. But likely won’t draw them all and will be posting other artwork I’m inking, too.
 
This drawing is the inked version, before color, for my daily Swampy’s Florida Happy cartoon. These cartoons are due to “INKtober 2 years ago when I saw, cartoonist – who should be called an artist, John Sanford‘s excellent inked cartoon posts. At that point I wasn’t drawing enough, or inking enough, so I joined in. Then i stopped and knew I needed to continue. Eventually, decided last year to start the daily Swampy’s Florida cartoons, which has me ink – and coloring – daily. Anyway, big thank you to John for unintentionally getting me to ink more!

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.

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

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

2015-0723-Whitey-1

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.)

June 26th, 2015 – Drawing a hero!

by on Jun.26, 2015, under Caricatures, Cartooning

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!
