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.

#5 "Family Tree" in color

I had some fun coloring this one. Although looking at it now I would definitely do some things different. But there are some fun little flourishes in it, for sure. Our friend Sammy Rubin makes an appearance behind our bald friend and my boy Scoop Jardine can be seen in the picture behind the angel. It was basketball season at this point and I was watching a lot of Syracuse games. Little Segundo looks a little blue; maybe he's holding his breath.
