A local cartoon

Most people don't know this, but Baker County is a hot spot for pot growers in the southeast. Which means helicopter fly-overs are quite common. Lately there has been a rash of detections and arrests, and upon seizure the perps always say stuff like: "I knew when I heard you guys buzzin' around up there I was busted."

I thought that this was a cool way to pay homage to one of my favorite cartoonists, and illuminate the situation.

Thanks Sparky!

Where's Moammar?

He's right here! A quick caricature I did for the syndicate this week.

Pedro and The Clown for September

Oops! Forgot to post this one as well. We had a tattoo festival in St. Augustine last week, and I wanted to get P&C involved somehow. Here's what I came up with.

Martha's Vineyard

Man, I was behind in my postings. Here's another one from last week. Enjoy.

Ni hao!

Here's some building I hope we don't see in Washington anytime soon.

A local cartoon for all you parents out there

Ali Ferzat

If you haven't heard of him, he's worth a Google. A Syrian editorial cartoonist who had his hands broken this week by Assad's thugs.

Sunday Sketch Results

I worked up a few 3 minute pen and ink gestures from the same pose, so I think I'll post those. It's tricky getting everything in there in only 3 minutes, but I think these were OK. I like to use ink for my gestures, because you have to be more sure about every line you put down. There are no "do-overs." We also did several 20 minute poses. I worked those up in the Moleskine in pencil and ink.

I'm still working towards the Sept 9th opening of the 2X2X5 show. Looks like I'm gonna get all 5 of my paintings finished on time. They'll still be wet though!

Stay tooned,

Syndicate toons

Here's last week's syndicate cartoons (a bit late). I'm still working on my Rick Perry caricature. I find it easier if I just imagine Ronald Reagan with a Texas swagger. Here's hoping we will not have to endure Bush II. Have a GREAT weekend everyone!

Vision of Japan Reborn

A particularly moving and interesting interview with famed Japanese architect Tadao Ando. If we want to get a head start on rebuilding our own country after this economic collapse, we'd be wise to listen to him (hint: we start by rebuilding humanity). Here's the link for show times in your area:

My interview from Sunday is up

I discuss a few of my recent cartoons with Shannon Ogden of First Coast News/NBC 12.

Sunday Sketch - August 14

I decided to do another montage of the three poses from yesterday's session. I've got another busy week ahead, so I'll post more as I come up for air. Cheers,

Corse Gallery Show set to open!

5 artists, 5 paintings per artist, each painting is 24" x 24".

Please stop by, grab a glass of wine, and help us celebrate new paintings by the aforementioned artists. Would love to see you there!

Here's a link to the Facebook event page for the show:

Local Cartoon: "I've got a great idea..."

"...let's pour these sidewalks leading to the school the week AFTER school starts." Genius!

August's Pedro & The Clown

I'm just now realizing that there were a few things that didn't get posted here at the beginning of the month. You'll have to forgive me as I have been preparing for a group show that is set to open Sept. 9 at The Corse Gallery & Atelier. More on that in a subsequent post.

In the meantime, here's my P&C for August. Gerrymandering was been in the news here lately as Florida redefines it's political boundaries. In this cartoon Pedro and his buddy get schooled on the subject. Enjoy.
