Luck o' the Artist

For St. Patrick's Day I made a couple of Irish Coffees for Anna and I and, I have to say, I had no idea that drink was so amazingly tasty. Goodness gracious.

Here are some more recent bits from my tiny traveling sketchbook -little snippets scribbled speedily:

And why did I have Irish Coffe on the brain? Because of Science Fiction, of course. Hard SF, in fact. I've been reading a book by Larry Niven called Draco Tavern. It's a series of short stories about a bar that caters to all kinds of crazy aliens -think Mos Eisley Cantina but in Russia. The bar tender is always fixing exotic alien fare and mixing classic earth drinks for himself. Like Irish Coffee.

And if you like lighter sci-fi you might enjoy a short video called World Builder. A tasteful use of CGI. Link thanks to Charlie Parker.
