New Mobile Carnival Association Floats!

This year, I was commissioned by the Mobile Carnival Association to render the design drawings for a couple of new Mardi Gras floats. One was the "Royal Court" float for the Children's Floral Parade, and the other was a "Royal Swans" float for the King's Parade.

More Mardi Gras Fun Info!

 Well, another Carnival season has come and is almost gone...!
Nice weather and record-setting crowds graced the streets of downtown Mobile for some memorable Mardi Gras parades, making for some true "Bon Temps"...!
 This year, The NEPTUNE'S DAUGHTERS theme was about famous people from Alabama "Stars Fell on Alabama" and featured a float honoring Joe Cain , the man widely recognized as reviving Mardi Gras in Mobile after the "War of Northern Aggression". You can read about him and the holiday set aside in his honor HERE .

 For over 25 years, "Joe Cain as Chief Slacabamarinico" has been portrayed by Reverend Wayne Dean, and, when possible, the sculptors try to give the figure his likeness.

 Sometimes, this isn't always the case, and the figure will generally more closely resemble the ACTUAL Joe Cain-- based on historical reference and archival photographs.

Heck, I'm even considering making a Comic about the Carnival Mardi Gras Adventures of Chief Slac:
Do you think it would sell...?

Regardless, it's ALL done in the 'Spirit of Mardi Gras', and enjoyed by all!
