Wilbur from Canal Bar

Wilbur used to live above Canal Bar. I always wonder what it would be like to live above a bar- would I feel obliged to go there every night? Probably. It's a good thing that I live 172 steps from the Canal Bar, 160 if I'm in a good mood, 190 if I'm feeling down. Wilbur now lives a few blocks away, I'd say at least 500 steps away, but I'll have to check. I'll ask him this Sunday at Canal, where he tends bar.

This one is great! Love how the ink on napkin has really given a cloth feeling to his shirt.

thanks! I took it home and worked on it a bit more after sketching him at the bar- he had a black shirt on after all, and I wanted to show that.
