THE DINER IS OPEN.
And if i really wanted to run this motif into the ground right off the cricket bat, i might start off saying something like, "how's about some roasted sherry duck for Christmas, hon?" In the interests of not having to live the lie that i am indeed operating a grossly unconventional eating establishment, i should go ahead and state that the title is lifted from one of my favorite books, because i always wished that this place could exist outside of the author's fevered imagination. And now it does, kind of. But not at all really.
PS: The sketches above were copied from Frank Tashlin's "The Stupid Cupid" onto the first page of my new sketchbook!

Hey, nice!

I've always liked Tash's take on Daffy. He'd be really ngular with feathers sprouting out at the sharp corners of his design.

I especially like the coffee stain. How'd you do that?

Multistep process:
1) Remove borders in html
2) find coffee stain
3) photoshoppery
4) create borders on your image that are the same color as your blog background
5) voila!

i like the Tashlin / Art Davis Daffy, too. Probably my favorite, as far as how he's drawn and animated, and so much fun to copy!
