Pete's Tavern


This hat wearing dude was trying to pick up these women at the bar.I might have thought they were all together but when one of the women declared loudly "will you just leave us alone, we're trying to talk!", he and I both got the picture.

Hey Char, you can't teach an old dog new tricks I guess. I got a smile out of it though.

Chad Wallace said...

Well this guy didn't "get it" that's for sure. Good drawing and commentary. I hope that line about both of you getting the picture makes the book.

Dude, just the body language says "Go away you fat git!" He obviously doesn't speak body language.

Sheila said...

LOL... I always love your stories behind your sketches Stephen.

One of life's injustices: Success at picking up young ladies and belt size are always inverse ratios.

Michelle said...

You have certainly captured more than figures here! I can almost hear the conversation. Great work!!

Stephen Gardner said...

Chad, I'll work it in.

Hans, I had to take a course in body language as part of becoming a citizen.

Sheila, It's great when I get to see a slice of life when I'm drawing, it doesn't always happen.

Larry, I'm glad I got married for that reason alone.

Michelle, thanks, sometimes I get more than I bargained for.

Hey Pete, I remember to you telling me that, it's a good one and next time you are over I'll show you some more.
