Deja Vu

As I was making sketches this week for a drawing I plan to make about different kinds of bread, I had this deja vu of drawings I've made about 15 years ago. My nephew, who owns several bakery-stores, asked me to make drawings for a series of ads he was planning to place in the local newspaper. The drawings were supposed to be used all year round, so I made several different ones. Themes were: Christmas, Eastern, New Years Eve, and so on, and so on. Luckily I've found a print in my archive to share with you, cause the original drawings are long lost. No one knows what happened with them. Maybe they show up at an auction when my work becomes famous...

Lovely sketch! When I first looked at it, though, I "read" it as see creatures--crabs for crescent rolls, and some kind of round speckled things for the buns.

Yum! It's almost 10PM and I should not be thinking about eating hot delicious bread! Great illustration!

Thanks for your comments. I'm sorry if I encouraged an unwelcome appetite!
@coreopsis: funny you thought the crescent rolls were crabs. The same thought occured to me when I first saw this drawing after so many years!

I really like this, and I like the scanned paper too.
