Sketchtoon: Two Bald Guys at Chipotle

Two Bald Guys at Chipolte SketchI received a free burrito coupon from Chipotle in my neighborhood and today, decided to redeem that sucker and enjoy a lunch away from the office, and the first day of summer.

While enjoying my steak burrito, guacamole and chips, I pulled out my Moleskine planner and made this quick doodle of two bald guys eating lunch on the patio across from me.

I thought it was interesting that they were both bald, apprently by choice. Been seeing more of the "bald by choice" lately, either to hide a receeding hairline or just for the look of it.

The sketch was done with a Niji Stylist felt tip pen and colored moments ago with Prismacolor pencils, before I scanned and posted the image on Flickr.

Got the date wrong. It should be 6/21, and it's Chipotle not Chipolte, whoops! :-)

That's a neat sketch! Was that just for fun or will you turn the sketch into a design?

Thanks Daniel -- it was a spur of the moment fun thing. I think I very often like those "throw away" sketches better than the planned ones! I've no intention in turning that into a full-blown design though. I like it as a rough sketch too much. :-)

Nice sketch Mike.Ah the old Prismacolors eh!

I saw a short clip on BBC recently featuring political cartoonist Steve Bell: http://commentisfree.guardian.co.uk/stevebell/index.htmlthe clip was him being interviewed on the beach at Brighton - where I've been spending some time myself recently. He was using some sort of brush-pen, very black ink, to draw some caricatures of Tony Blair live. Astonishing to see the skill with which he wields his pen, a joy to watch.

Later, alligator...
