I had a one of those not-quite-awake-not-quite-asleep thoughts that so often come in the mornings and it inspired this piece. I thought it necessary to break away from the previous pieces that include the handyman character, not because I was bored of them, but because I’m a moron and couldn’t think of any new ideas. Since this idea was already pretty much fully formed I decided to roll with it.
On a side note I’m listening to audio-book of Stephen Fry’s “Moab is my Washpot”, the first of his autobiography books. It’s narrated by Fry himself and I think that makes it so much more interesting and engaging. The same can be said of Trevor Noah’s “Born a Crime”, which I’ve both read and listened to, and I would recommend doing both. I find it difficult to find the time to read these days with the amount of work I’m doing, so being able to listen to audio-books while I do some of the less taxing aspects of illustration is really nice.
Anyway, this a real restaurant in the Tribeca area of NYC. Apparently it was built in 1810. That’s as much as I know. Enjoy!
