Hey, look! It’s a genuine, drawn-in-the-restaurant placemat sketch. These used to be fairly frequent parts of many cartoonists’ artistic outputs, but with fewer and fewer restaurants investing in paper placemats in these days of tight budgets and waste awareness, the opportunities to draw them are getting rarer. Luckily our local Italian restaurant keeps up with the tradition.
On my recent visit I remembered to bring a real drawing pen with me and I drew this Princess Riding a Wolf for you. The pen is a Pilot brush marker, and her crown is embellished with a bit of whiteout. That’s how you can tell she’s a Princess.
