Well, if you didn’t know I am a front desk clerk at a hotel in a beach town. Sounds simple, but it’s not. I’ve had more ridiculous questions asked in the last month than I have had my entire life. The hotel business is really just a test of patience and sanity! I do have some great moments, that I will never forget. This week I got some golf groups in, most of them retired, rich, and ready to rumble without their New York, mint-eating, musk-wearing wives! I loved them all and wondered if I could catch them for some photos. Apparently, golf vacation trips are so full of beer drinking, casino time, and young honey searching that this was not possible. What they don’t know is that I have been sketching them in my free time and finally put my favorites together on one page.
The best ones are the ones that curse like they are 16, drink like they are 21, and have egos of 30 year old bachelors! I love the twinkle in their eyes when I tell them about bar specials or where to buy some cigars. The guy in the top right hand corner was definitely my favorite. He talked in secret so his lovely wife couldn’t hear and tried to party with everyone that wasn’t on his trip. Oh, the joy in seeing old people acting up…He also had this awful frown/smirk that he kept his entire stay.
I have some copies so I might give them some color or collage them. I was really happy with the result, might even turn them into a painting. I finally have some free time in the next two days so I hope to get some sketching done. I hope these guys will keep you company until then…
