THEE GROTTO DRAWINGS















In 2003 i lived and worked in Orlando as a live caricaturist at universal studios, caricaturists from all the area theme parks would gather once a week on orange st. in downtown Orlando at a small bar called Thee Grotto to drink and or draw. These are really fast on the spot sketches of the other artists and bar patrons. Among those I remember seeing there were Joe Bluhm, Glenn Ferguson, Dino Casterline, Ernie Turner, Keelan Parahm, Brian Oakes, Anne Bush, Jesus Minguez, Ken Knafuo, Alex Hughes, Mike Briggs, Dion Scocia, Pj tamayo, and a ton of others....... if I forgot to put anybodys name drop me an email and I'll add 'ya.

Wow, SWEET!! 3 years later I finally see a Jert sketch I never knew existed!! I saw my name on your little list there, and so i had to think...YES, now I remember I DID meet you at Thee Grotto! So funny.

yeah I didn't realize i had met you before until I started thumbing through this old sketchbook.... I think it was you that Joe drew me with at the bar outside, and we look like the number 10,(you being the one and myself being the zero)
