I do have real friends, actually, but sometimes it’s just as fun to take myself out to a cafe with my sketchbook for some people watching and cartoon friend creation.
Case in point, this past weekend I walked to the Upper West Side Maison Kayser…
And ordered a cafe latte and a slice of flour-less chocolate cake.
It was a hopping time to be at Maison Kayser, so I had fun picking subjects to sketch. A party of four arrived at the table across from mine a short time after I sat down. I captured one of the gentlemen in the group perusing the menu…as you can see, people tend to look happy when they’re reading the menu at Maison Kayser…
And I could imagine him thinking…
Oh dear, oh my, what to choose?
Everything’s good, so there’s nothing to lose.
My belly has room for dessert, of course,
Too bad the sugar will cause remorse.
Giving new meaning to “period style” (yes, the pun is intended), my latest cartoon is set in the Renaissance era.
(And it’s available for purchase here.)
…and please consider voting for me/my business in Etsy’s #DifferenceMakesUs Contest! Voting closes at midnight EST April 6th.
- Because I’ve been cooped up inside since Sunday rehearsing and performing and your vote will cheer me up.
- A cartoonist needs an audience and your votes (and comments and shares) are just the encouragement I need to keep brainstorming and producing more work.
- I need a lot more votes to even have a chance at being competitive.
P.S. If you voted, then a million thanks from the bottom of my heart. You’ve been officially placed on my gratitude list and you don’t need to do anything else (but you could share this post with your friends…)
(Actually, even better is getting lots of encouragement and votes from my family, friends and fans.)
Yes, I’ve decided to enter the Etsy #DifferenceMakesUs Contest. Winning is entirely based on popularity (number of votes across different Social Media platforms), so if you like me and my work, I hope you’ll consider voting! You can submit your vote here up until midnight on April 6th, EST.
