Café Vesuvio of San Francisco, Original Art (ink on paper)

Buy my original drawing of Vesuvio Café, one of the famous bars of San Francisco.

This gorgeous b/w piece celebrates a truly Great Good Place of San Francisco, and it's standard-sized (a 16" by 12" image on 14" by 18" paper) and ready to frame. 

Drawn with India ink on heavy 140-lb cold press Fabriano paper.

First time I went to Vesuvio was 1992, shortly after Bill Clinton was elected and I trucked out from Chicago to California with my friend H in a silver convertible Something-Or-Other lent to us by our friend who'd just busted her foot.

Anyway, we landed in SF, stumbled upon Vesuvio with our Portland friend Cat, and had one hell of a fine time being entertained by a local fellow in a Hawaiian shirt, tripping joyfully — and plenty vocally — on acid. And there was beer. Cool, refreshing beer. And martinis. And Atomic Fire Balls, for some reason.

The piece is a beauty, and there's only one, so....
