Even though I was in the middle of eating French toast at Terry's diner, dreams of pasta floated around me as I overheard this fella talking about spaghetti bolognese and lasagna and so forth. He was very excited about it all.

I had to capture the initial sketch in less than five minutes as they were finishing their breakfast when I opened my sketchbook. She was in deep discussion and he had a cheekful of food.

Diner Junk
Man oh man, how I love diners!
This is part of my At The Table series.
36"x24"
Someone asked me if these particular characters are based on anyone specific and the answer is...sort of.... The characters are inspired by a variety of people in my life but ultimately they are created, imagined characters. The girl on the right was inspired by a photo. I was gonna send my buddy a phonephoto of me eating a hotdog at one of her favorite restaurants. But when I saw the photo, rather than it being all cute and funny, I looked like a homicidal maniac attacking a hot dog. It was scary. I guess eating is like an intense exercise for me. But the photo was also funny. So I thought I'd base a painting on that crazy food face and also expand into my general love for diners.

She calmly and pleasantly ate her breakfast. I don't know her but I drew her because I liked her bangs.
