Cantina, a Soft Pencil Drawing on British A4 Stationary from 1995

A youth with an injured right wrist, wearing the then-popular 1970’s revival pods, awaiting his coffee in an imaginary coffee place. This drawing is pencil on fade-prone pink paper in a slightly smaller A4 format, brought with me from the UK. This drawing is part of a series of drawings of characters based on the strangely uncanny characters in a short Sesame Street cartoon. This animation involved a father painting a fence, his son, a UFO, and an extraterrestrian. To see the remaining drawings in this series, please redirect here. (c) 1995 Torsten Slama
