This past Thanksgiving, I travelled to Ireland. When I was in Dublin, I met Shamek at The George. A friendly fellow from eastern Europe, he was very much a "wild and crazy guy" in the Steve Martin & Dan Akroyd SNL skit sense. "Irish... is CRAZY. Irish... is just 'more drink.' ... French... Polish... is 'more drink—DANCE!" I had intended to color the whole drawing, in order to capture his lovely pinstripe suit, but for now I like it as is, showcasing his colorful tie. December 2007.
