Still Getting Better and Better…Our Paper Is Adding A New Feature

By Sid Riley
We have a professional quality political cartoonist living and working right here in Jackson County. Larry Brock, a well known and appreciated graphic artist and signwriter, is teaming up with ideas submitted by this writer, to create original, humorous, thought provoking political cartoons. These will be featured each week on the same page that carries "Getting It Right", our conservative political column.
Under the by-line, "Larry Did It", each week Larry Brock’s artistic interpretation of Sid Riley’s views on current events will be a new feature, titled "Not To Mention It". We hope this opens new vistas for this talented local artist.
Larry Brock is the son of Paul and Juanita Brock of Marianna. He is a graduate of Marianna High School. After high school Larry graduated from the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida and Art Instruction School, of Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has been in the graphic arts/sign business in Jackson County since he graduated from art school. Larry is the proud father of six children and ten grandchildren.
During his career Larry has won numerous awards for his works in art shows and exhibits throughout North Florida. His ability to hand paint signs with original hand art graphics is a dying talent in today’s computerized graphics environment. He has also created hand murals in several homes, businesses, and museums, some as far away as Jacksonville and Miami.
He is currently working with a Florida author in providing illustrations for a new book. We consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to display his talents in the Jackson County Times.
