Sketches of the legislative session

Roaming the Capitol with his sketch pad and shading pencil, Times news artist Don Morris set out to illustrate the closing days of session from the perspective of the super-lobbyist to the shoe shiner.

Click here to browse a slideshow of his sketches, which were featured in Sunday's Tampa Bay Times.

Captured moments include Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater, winking at lobbyist Ron Book before budget conference; House debate on restricting EBT cards at strip clubs and casinos; and a group of male pages dodging an elevator of young girls.
