As you might have guessed by now, I spend a lot of time in coffee shops–so much so that I get to know the people who own them and work in them–they are some of the most interesting and best people I’ve met, to be sure. One of the things I love about coffee shops is the culture they create–there are the ‘regulars (of which I am one), the employees, and then the ‘guests’–the random people who wander in just for a one time visit or so. Sometimes I feel as though I’m an anthropologist merely observing what goes on–which can range from the mundane to the bizarre at times.
This comic here, is the result of one of those bizarre days–it’s based on an actual event and shows why my neighborhood is awesomely odd. To my chagrin, I must admit this has taken me months to finish–drawing it didn’t take that long, but I made some technical decisions, such as drawing (& therefore scanning), all the speech bubbles & text separately, so it was a major pain to layer it all in photoshop.
However, without further ado, here it is. Enjoy & ‘ciao for now’
