Holiday Barista

In a job where eccentricity is appreciated, barista "Meyer" in my local Peet's Coffee stands out. He is a big, burly blacksmith with a bald head, a beard topiary, and a wild Dali-style "longhorn" mustache. When he is not hammering on the red-hot iron, he is handing out cups of hot coffee. I drew him during my coffee break as he stood behind the bar. This is not a "snapshot" but rather an impression as he moves about a lot. Winter is a good time for coffeehouse drawings as it's too cold and wet outside to do my neighborhood walk.
