The Golf Retiree

This guy is the result of sitting in a Nelson pub during the UFC fight. Confused? Well, I was less than enthused about watching the match, so I started sketching. (Yeah, real cool. Be the chick in the bar with a book out. Hot.) Many silhouettes later, I developed this old man playing golf.

I thought, "Migod, what would it feel like to retire and hate golf? What would you do with yourself?!" He's wondering the same thing.

p.s. This is my first, albeit timid, attempt at digital painting. Hope to take bigger risks with future pieces. :)

WWJ(amie)D? Is what I'll be thinking now when I cafe sketch.

I like that idea about the golf hater. but I love the idea of the mid 20's girl in the bar who is drawing. people must have been wtf? when you drew them and sipped your beer.

btw, Im FINALLY gonna get you on my link list, sorry for the wait.
