Captain Tony's Saloon, Key West, Florida, U.S.A

I was commissioned to draw the elevation Captain Tony’s Saloon, in downtown Key West, Florida. Built in 1852, the bar has been patronized through the years by many well-known artists, writers and celebrities. When any celebrity visits, a barstool is added with that patron’s name, such as Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Jimmy Buffett, Shel Silverstein, John Prine, and even John F. Kennedy and Harry Truman, among others. Above the sign outside the building is a large Jewfish that Captain Tony caught and had preserved. It is said that if you throw a quarter into the mouth of the fish, good luck will follow you until you leave the island.
