Seen on Busch Blvd

Posted on Mar 26th, 2010 in Seen on Busch Blvd


As a resident of Tampa, Florida, I do a lot of driving.  During these trips I witness many roadside oddities. I used to get frustrated because I couldn’t pull my camera out fast enough to capture them to share with others.  It finally dawned on me – draw them! Duh!

For whatever reason, these oddities seem to be concentrated on Busch Blvd, a long stretch of east-west road that passes Busch Gardens. Hence the name of the series.

I don’t mean these to be mean spirited.  I find pleasure in the unexplained/out of context. I’m sure all the of these images (people) have great back stories to them.  My mind fills in the blanks.

Also, these are just rough sketches. They are done in about 5-10 minutes and are straight out of the sketch book I carry around, so don’t grade me on my drawing skills here please!  It’s the idea I’m trying to capture and share.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
