Ikki Matsumoto’s whimsical illustrations captured the spirit of Sanibel and Captiva. His sense of humor infused his art but never overwhelmed his respect for the wildlife he painted. The lines in his work are wonderfully fluid, and every bird, every dolphin had that extra “touch” that just brought a smile to people. Ikki simplified SCCF founding Trustee Ann Winterbotham’s original drawing of the SCCF logo pelican and island — and his logo image is still in use today.
