Life Coaching Caricatures: Bill the Piano player & Painting Nancy! – April 2nd, 2017

by on Apr.05, 2017, under Caricatures, Illusration

I had the opportunity to meet Bill at an event near Spring hill & Weeki Wachee, Florida on Sunday. I met him as he played Stardust and a medley from The Phantom of the Opera. He complained that he missed notes. Sounded great to me. Especially for a fellow of 94 years. Bill drove a tractor trailer most of his career in Canada after his family moved him from England as a teen.

Here’s the watercolor illustration i did of 80 year young Nancy, the birthday girl, who was being honored at the party.

Life coaching caricatures! in Tampa – June 2nd, 2017

by on Apr.02, 2017, under Caricatures

A few images of the life coaching caricatures I did at an event Saturday night in Tampa, Florida.

Back in February I figured I’d been posting too many of these event photos and figured I should hold off a bit before posting more. Well, a good 15 events later, here are some more.

The first photo is of Rhoda, who is 3 generations Native Floridian from Tampa in one side of family and 5 generations Native Floridian from around Monticello on the other side. I’m going to help her plan a family reunion near Orlando to see Orange County history and not have folks running off to the kiddie amusement parks.

The next image is of Rhoda’s husband who’s training ng as a boxer includes the 5th Street Gym in Miami. How about that, Tom Orr!

#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!
