Artist Profile Guy Harvey

Most of us know who David Mann is, some of us know who Coop is,
but not many here know of another favorite artist of mine.
Guy Harvey, PhD.

Growing up in South Florida, I spent a lot of time in and around the water.
Fishing, scuba diving, surfing, and snorkeling was how I spent my
time before the motorcycle bug bit me.

I still pick up a salt water fishing magazines from time to time.
One of those things I do that takes me back to a different time in my life.
When you set your calendar by what was running at the time.

When you fed the tarpon at the docks by hand and warned
that they were pets and not to be taken by anyone.
(A few tourists received more than a warning )

While going through some things in the storage unit the other day, I
found an old bill fish tournament poster. It was falling apart, but
I could still make out the art work by Guy Harvey.

It was a shame to get ride of it, but it was too far gone to be saved.
It did bring me back to the first time I saw his artwork and how as a teenager, I was always
looking out for his new shirt, poster, or painting.
Guy Harvey does a ton of different things in the name of ocean preservation.
Just Google his name to find out more.
