Day Trip to Savannah

We drove up to Savannah yesterday to take in the new Pat Oliphant show at the Telfair Museum of Art. Pretty much all you see on the drive up from Jacksonville is interstate and semi's, so I killed time by sketching one. That's pretty tough to do when they're speeding by at 80 MPH, but I gave it a shot.

The trip was well worth it. It was a beautiful sunny day, and it's always nice to see another cartoonists originals. There were quite a few (both old and new) included. There was also a significant amount of sculpture as well as large scale drawings. We especially enjoyed the large charcoal drawing he had done on the wall outside of the gallery.

Afterwards we threw back a few pints of Boddingtons at the Six Pence Pub. Very nice, and yes, I'm sporting a beard again.

We drove back yesterday evening. All in all a great way to spend a Saturday.
