I drew this back in the summer, i have a back log of drawings, I don't know why I haven't been posting except to say that I'm out of the habit. I used to feel anxious until I had posted for the day and now I often don't think of it. I'm working on the bar paintings and getting this book out so my focus a has been elsewhere. Sketch of the day has become a bit of a joke, I must admit, I'll have another go and see what happens, and and apologies for those of you who are visiting the site of late. I'll do better.

Got a little done at the weekend but not too much on account that we are training for the marathon and ran 21 miles on Saturday, very little left in the tanks on Sunday but had a go, plat spot the difference.

Old Town Bar

This was my favorite lunchtime spot for a little while. Angie used to work a couple of blocks away so it was a great place to meet her for lunch of wait for her to get out of work.

Moving along with the inside of Fanelli's, I'm trying to create the same feeling of warmth, these things take time.
