LAKELAND, Florida. – George Lowe seems like any other guy who strolls around Lakeland until he opens his mouth. You never know which of your cartoon characters will come out. It could be “Space Ghost”, the father in “Brak”, or the unicorn in “Robot Chicken”.
Lowe brings all of these characters to life with his dramatic voice. He says if he hears someone who has an interesting voice, he makes a note of it.
“If I’m somewhere like New York and I hear a great voice, I’ll try that later in the day, especially in New York because New York is such a pu-pu sound record,” Lowe explained.
In addition to the constant search for new and interesting voices, he is also tirelessly looking for something different, the next work of art for his already extensive collection.
“It’s a real illness. I should be on a program,” Lowe said with a wink.
His passion for art started young.
âMom caught me at graduation and said, ‘Do you want a car?’ I said no! I want a Picasso. So we went to the bank and it was just a print and she had to take out a loan for the print. “

His collection, which covers almost every square centimeter of his house, now includes 700 copies. Lowe is also a well-known artist himself.
“I use watercolors, but most of them are crayons on brown crap paper,” he said.
The modest choice of paper recently didn’t seem to deter two buyers from entering a bidding war for one of his works at a New York auction house. It cost $ 2,000 out the door.
