20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Continuing with the extinct Disney attractions, today is an image I created for the classic submarine ride, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

Spaceship Earth

The great texture of Spaceship Earth at EPCOT provides infinite possibilities for art.  Two of these would make great desktop backgrounds.

Adventures In The Florida Wilds - Weeki Wachee River

Spent the day today with some friends on the Weeki Wachee River.  We didn't see any mermaids but we did spot a swimming snake, two manatees, lots of fish, and a deer when our boat crashed into the shore.

This was a pretty big manatee.

This and the next picture was a much smaller manatee.

A little tree diving.

Nick watches the tree jumpers from underwater.

Skyway To Tomorrowland

I created this to commemorate the recently demolished Fantasyland Skyway Station at the Magic Kingdom.  Below is a second picture I toyed with as well.

Visit Florida

Harkening back to a simpler time in Florida tourism when the exotic flora and fauna of the state was the main draw, I threw together these posters yesterday.

Vintage Florida Adventures - Gatorland

Spent the day at Gatorland yesterday.  Even though I've lived most of my life in Central Florida I had somehow never made it to this attraction.  We had a blast.

There's a setting on my camera called "Sparkle" which I was experimenting with over the weekend.  I had forgotten that is was on and so the first couple of pictures look a little magical.

This guy was BIG!

We found this turtle to be very humorous.  What an odd position to get yourself into.

Always looking for a hand out.

This just about cracked me up.  This guy must have thought he was something special.

We got to feed the aligators chunks of steak.  We were brought inside their enclosure and this is what awaited us.  We got withing two feet of them and tossed the steak to them.

This guy didn't seem happy about something.  "Get off my lawn you damn kids!"

More hungry mouths to feed.

One of many shots I took of birds surfing on gators.

Here Nick was tossing pieces of hotdogs to the gators.  Sometimes the birds were faster like here where they all swooped in trying to win the prize.  Right after this a bird flew up to the guy next to us and ripped a whole package of hot dogs right out of his hand!  It was pretty unbelievable.

I was sure that this bird was going to become a snack but he flew out of the water in the nick of time.

Panorama from the observation tower (trying to try all of the settings on my camera).

No privacy at all around this place!

Here are a couple of drawings I did of friends, circa 1993.
