Biscuits and Beer

Ahh... The breakfast of champions, biscuits and beer. I didn't really have this for breakfast but, when I showed the finished picture to Gorky she said, "Nice. Is that what you had for breakfast?"

I think she's still grumpy about losing all her money at poker a few nights ago.

Anyhow, this is not what I had for breakfast. It's what I had for lunch. Did you notice the beer is empty? I need a nap. I'll be back in a few hours.

(A few hours later.)

That's better. Now my head's not so foggy. Biscuits and Beer was drawn on an old file folder with a Faber-Castle 3-H pencil, then inked over with my gel roller, then I colored it using watercolor pencils.

I need a beer to clear my head. This artist life is awesome.

Most of that story is not true.

Do you do anything wild to find your muse? Do you want to leave some love?

  • Mmmmm...yeasty goodness!

    Only few know this about me...I always have cold hands and feet. But sometimes my feet get room temperature and feel like big hot balloons - it drives me to distraction and horns grow out of my head!
    My cure to crabbiness and revive the muse is to sit on the edge of the bathtub, read a book and soak my feet in cold water. I've been known to do this in the middle of the night.
    When I used to live with Scarecrow, he used to joke and tell me to dangle my feet in the toilet! ha-ha!

    Does that mean my muse lives in my feet?

  • What are American biscuits? - I already know that what we call biscuits are more like what you call cookies... though we have cookies too... but they are just a type of what we call biscuits... can you tell I'm confused?

    By Blogger Caroline, at 01:56  

  • caroline: Hmm... Well American biscuits are more like scones. Sort of.
    I can give you the recipe if you like. They're easy to make and great with gravy or honey. :-)

  • I used to play competitive sport and after the game I had a real hankering for beer and ice-cream. Now I've given up competitive sport and ice-cream and just drink beer. Darling where's my brewsky?!

  • detlef: Mmm... I love beer and ice cream. It's a great combo.
    Do you drink good beer or just beer beer? :-)
