My left-handed chairs

Barry Comer, Barry Comer Artist, Cafe Chairs, Left-Handed, Office chairs, Perspective

I am a rightie, but draw sometimes like a leftie. It seems like I am trapped inside the looking-glass. That’s the beauty of a perception within one’s creative mind.

What out is in and in is left.

“The times they are a-changin'”

1960s, Acrobatic chairs, Barry Comer, Barry Comer Artist, Bob Dylan - The times they are a-changin', The times they are a-changin'

Thank you Mr. Dylan. I needed your words and sentiments.

“Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin’
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’.”

Bob Dylan

This is my safe place for mind and art. In this place, nothing invades unless I allow.

Cafe Chairs

Tables and chairs belonging to my favorite café, are ready for the day. They are lined up and ready for neighbors, visitors and acrobats.

Ashley Scarlett ( posted a beautiful image of a sofa and office chair the other day. It had all the ingredients and essence of office cool and scent. I could even detect someone’s cigarettes in the fabric.

I don’t prefer sitting in offices, nor typical office furniture. However, I am always amused that designers took the time to create such schlock.

Thank you Ashley for inspiring me to go out and illustrate some “kafé Kool”. Not so much for the hipster next to me. He was quite full of himself, plus his black rimmed glasses were obnoxious. I don’t like hipsters.


Fulfilling multiple senses simultaneously

Bacon Turkey Bravo Sandwich, cafe sketching, Panera Bread


This is the first time I have eaten and sketched at the same time. Dangerous, I tell you, very dangerous. Stuff drops on the paper, the pen becomes slippery and well, I wanted to eat.

However, I had a great time, feeling relaxed and fulfilled multiple senses simultaneously.

Menu: turkey, bacon, tomato and pickle, wrapped neatly in rosemary scented bread.
