Savannah Scavenger Hunt: The Pirates' House

I had done this sketch before the postcard challenge began, but it just so happens to be one of the scenes!
I was with fellow illustrator and fine artist Jordan Wong, whose work is stunningly beautiful! After surveying some different spots around town, we happened upon this fun scene. The "pirate" was greeting visitors on tour buses, but in between gigs, he was kind enough to allow us to sketch him.

Savannah Scavenger Hunt: Forsyth Fountain

This small ink sketch was done in Forsyth Park and is probably the easiest of the postcard scenes to find.
The trumpet player is there often, playing tunes by request and chatting with passers-by. He once graced me with his rendition of "Come Back to Sorrento", even though I had no money to put in his donation bin.
