2008 Madrid Bar Sketches...

A favorite ritual of mine is meeting up once or twice a week after midnight at CASA PUEBLO in central Madrid, with fellow transplanted New York cartoonist Kevin J. Taylor. Tales are swapped, drinks are downed & sketches are made... til' the sun comes up. The best drawings I tend to give away... hope you don't mind leftovers:

And I promise you, at least half of these images were inspired by the actual patrons. Viva Espana!

(PS... a special shoutout to my cousin Robert in Atlanta and to Al, Nicole, Estrella & all the rest of the great folks he works with at the UPS Datacenter! Took me long enough, but here's an update!)
(PSPS... a special thanks to those out there who commented & linked to the following journal entries. I appreciate you... Happy 2008!)
