Retro Sketch

“Hey, Alicia; what should I draw?”

“Draw somebody who drinks A LOT of coffee!”

And so I did. Alicia is an absolutely brilliant writer; you should check out her book on the history of New York’s Diamond District. We were hanging out at the same cafe back in 2009, when I did this drawing. Alicia has a wonderfully sharp and detailed, yet prosaic writing style, so for her, I had to have fun with the creative license on this little drawing. So yeah; we do drink a lot of coffee, and when you drink a lot of coffee, then you eventually feel it sharply inside of you, subsequently needing the restroom, hence, the yellow area in the drawing (ewww…gross!)
