Well, I’m back from San Francisco.
While shifting bookcases around yesterday (to make room for some stuff I picked up in SF), I found several more Borjun’s Tavern sketches from back in the day. (Check the Borjun’s Tavern link at the top of the page for more sketches and an explanation of what the Tavern was. I’ll add these photos to that collection sometime in the next couple of days.)
The first is actually okay recent, drawn on a napkin at the Blarneystone several years ago. Basically a couple concept sketches for a monkey, a random patron, and Blitzen, a Nazi reindeer stormtrooper (not one of my characters).
Next is a collection of Trix doodles and concept sketches…I’m guessing that this is at least 15 years old, maybe older.
Next, Cyborg and Sphere concept sketches (once again, not my character) from the same time period (at least it’s the next page in the pad)…
The next two are half-hearted attempts at creating a Borjun’s Tavern comic book. Both are from 15 years ago or so as well, long before I’d even thought of using a computer for this type of thing.
I was obviously also impressed with that Sandman t-shirt of Death drinking a cup of coffee.
If I remember, the above cafe was modelled on Cafe Trios in Chapel Hill as well…
