Meet Trent Cardinal


Trent has an obsession with drawing. He loves drawing fish, dinosaurs, dragons, and video game characters. In 2021 he drew a Wahoo and friends suggested he put it on a shirt like Guy Harvey. Since then, Trent has produced 9 different shirts that he has sold at various art shows and online.

In 2022, Trent won 1st Place for Florida in the Wildlife Forever / FWC Fish Art Contest. His snook drawing for that competition was auctioned off at Florida Gulf Coast University fundraiser for their Fishing Club. That same year Trent won “BEST IN SHOW” at the Viera Kids Business Show.

In 2023, FGCU used the same snook design for their alumni annual fishing tournament fundraiser. Trent also launched his YouTube channel teaching others his passion with “How To Draw” videos.

When Trent is not drawing, he loves playing baseball for the local little league, playing video games, fishing, and trying to beat his sister in any competition possible.

Make sure to follow Trent’s journey on FB, Instagram, and YouTube. If you see Trent out at an event, come say Hi! He would love to show you what he has been up to.
