GAINESVILLE, Florida – For more than 45 years Billy Chapman has been providing anglers with trips of a lifetime to Brazil’s Amazon jungles for peacock bass and Mexico’s prime largemouth bass lakes. Chapman announces that Doug Schermer, with years of experience in creating lifelike renditions of fish in their natural habitat, is the Official Artist of Anglers Inn International.
Schermer’s Anglers Inn artwork will be profiled on various promotional items including placement on official Anglers Inn Huk apparel. The shirts will be available exclusively through Anglers Inn. Initial artwork includes largemouth bass in Mexico, largemouth bass in Florida, snook, redfish and tarpon.
“My goal is to make sure every subject, fish, bird or animal, is accurately and innovatively displayed in every one of my creations,” said Schermer. “I give God all the glory for the talent I have been given. To whom much is given much will be required. Luke 12:48.”
“We are so proud to have Doug as our official artist,” said Chapman. “He delivers such imaginative depictions of the natural world and his fish pictures are ideal for Anglers Inn messaging to our guests.”
Schermer has years of experience as an artist with many major magazine and book editors relying on his talents to produce the perfect art. He has a BFA from Columbia College (Missouri). A lifelong resident of central Illinois, Schermer is an avid outdoorsman and uses reference photographs to ensure that every fin on a bass is accurately depicted.
Sponsors of Anglers Inn International include Abu Garcia, Berkley, Fishing Tackle Retailer Magazine, Huk, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Mossy Oak, Old Town and St. Croix Rod.
