From 1972 – 1977 I lived in Key West Florida.
I did a great many pen and ink illustrations of the Old Bahamian Wood architecture . People loved the way I drew and in those days I did it all free hand. No pencil and no ruler.. I made my living doing these black and white drawings priced at $20.00 each.
