This is Thiesel the alligator from my children’s book
“The Fairy Tale Project Trilogy!”
The city of Dania Beach in South Florida chose the artist’s work to appear on a call box along Dania Beach Boulevard. (If you’re local, it’s between Federal Hwy/US1 and A1A on the beach.) Isn’t he great?
The artist is Jacklyn Laflamme and the original acrylic on canvas painting (pictured below) is hanging in her studio. The “I know him!” reaction from guests is priceless.
