Tim and Jeremy are both waiters at a restaurant in downtown New York City. During slow times at work, to stave off boredom when it is slow, the two young men draw pictures. These pictures are made using ink and what is called the "Triple Dupe Pad," a book of paper used to place orders in the kitchen. The drawings usually take about a week to make, all the while also being used by fellow employees to take orders; this sometimes leads to other collaborators or in a couple cases, to the loss of the work. The drawings are then scanned and colored in Photoshop where they come to life in stunning technicolor! The subject matter varies from piece to piece, as they are made over a long course of time and under various moods and states of mind. They all retain a playfulness that serves as a coping mechanism after spending a night catering to the endless needs of hungry patrons.

#3 Colored by Tim Farnham
I really love how Tim colored this one. He kept the integrity of the drawing and gave it some spice. I also like how his palate makes it look like it is actually at the Cafe Loup! He captured the low, dimly lit place and put it into the piece. I also like the Vampire, as with color, it looks exactly like him. You people could even recognize him on the streets thanks to this rendition.
