It’s not like my wife and I don’t like each other. We’ve been together, happily, for quite some time. Over the years, we’ve learned that we both have different eating requirements. I like to linger after a meal and she does not. I like to engage in conversation with others at a restaurant and she tolerates it. I like to sketch new images and therefore, will sit, drink coffee as long as someone will fill the cup, and then, sketch until my wife returns or until, reluctantly, I have to leave and return to the harsh, cruel world outside.
And so, this slideshow is a culmination of the best meals and sketches I’ve created in the last year or two. When drawing, I normally use fine point Sharpies, or black Prismacolor pencils, but any marking tool works for me and occasionally you might find a blue ball point pen or thick black Pentels as the tool of choice or opportunity.
Most of these sketches, but not all, and the accompanying stories are taken from my two blogs:

Behind each illustration, on the next page, are my comments about the food, the venue or restaurant, the waitresses, my sketches or my life experiences as an artist/ illustrator. Because some of these stories are a bit long and editing them is rather problematic, I’ve opted to invite you to click on the accompanying url, to fully enjoy a particular story.
By the way, let me just say that with all my lingering around after a meal, I have never been kicked out of a restaurant. At least, not yet!
