I can’t eat until I finish Sketching

[By Mike Daikubara from Boston] Last year out of surprise, I was invited by a seafood restaurant called B&G Oysters to come sketch their weekly changing coursed meals called Shellabration. It was a great feeling to do a sketch for their social media pages in exchange for great food each week.

This year I was once again invited and will be spending the 7 weeks sketching these amazing seafood feasts and regional specialties from across the world!

I go to the restaurant straight after work so I’m quite tired and very hungry. I think I do one of my best and fastest sketches under these conditions since I can’t eat until I finish. I’m also under great pressure to finish fast since my wife can’t eat until I finish too. But she’s learned a little trick to ‘snack’ little pieces that aren’t seen in my sketch tough 🙂

Week 2 was Sicilian Fritto Misto – the large crispy fish was really tasty!

This year they even created a postcard for the event using one of my sketches from last year.

There are 5 more weeks remaining of this event. If you’re ever in town, come check it out! 🙂
