Cuban Cigars


As Marg pointed out in yesterday’s post, we just returned from Cuba. I have been fighting a traveler’s cold, and not able to scan too much yet, but wanted to put up this drawing as a ‘bocadito’ – or little snack. Will be posting my drawings and thoughts on the experience on my home blog soon. I’ll just say that the extremes of Havana were there – both reality and fantasy.

We spent our last evening in the outdoor bar of the hotel, cigar bar I should say, and there were many South American men [and women] there who seemed more inclined to the fantasy side of the Havana experience. Which was, of course, fantastic to draw. Artistically, I spent a lot of time thinking about textures in my drawings there, and the colors of Cuba. It’s a very unique graphic.
