This past July I mentioned I was working on another Disney illustration project but I couldn’t say what it was.  When it’s in the guest hands I can let the cat out of the bag!  If your received my last newsletter, (you can subscribe here) you already know that Jock Lindsey from the Indiana Jones series is my alter ego!

One of the new attractions at Disney Springs, formerly knows as Downtown Disney,  is Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, themed after the infamous pilot in the Indiana Jones series.   The story goes, Jock flew Indiana Jones to Florida in the late 1930’s to search for the fountain of youth.  He loved it so much he settled here in the 1940’s on the waterfront and opened a bar in a deserted airplane hangar.  As he was dreaming up cocktails to serve.  He started sketching out ideas in watercolor.  My (I mean Jock’s) favorite cocktails and sketches are featured in the cocktail menu. They are: The Cool Headed Monkey, Reggie’s Revenge, Hovito Mojito and Anything Goes.  I didn’t design the cocktails, Jock took care of that.  But I did have a hand doing (I mean helping) him with the illustrations for the menu.  I can’t wait to try them!

If you visit Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and try any of them let me know what you think!

So honored to be included in the catalogue with so many talented artists from around the world!


Some Nice Press and Finishing Hope is Home

Work in Progress Hope is Home, 22″ x 30″, Watercolor

It’s been a busy and exiting week!  Being the featured artist at the Winter Garden Art Association’s, 127 SoBo gallery I am in two local newspapers.  The latest edition of the The West Orange Times did a lovely half page featured article! I am very honored and flattered!

The Southwest Orlando Bulletin also put my picture in with a nice write-up about the exhibition

I have also been putting the finishing touches on “Hope is Home” the painting I have been working on for Hope City Orlando.  I will be posting the finished piece next week!

I am looking forward to a little bit of down time.  Spending more time with my daughter before she heads back to school, some beach time, and then I’ll start preparing for the workshop I will be teaching this fall at the Winter Garden Art Association.  The summer is flying by!
