A cool breeze tickles
The eyeball mustache bristles
And summer is done
Guess who’s back…again! The Return of Pumpkinspice returns. This sequel finds one unlucky barista in the clutches of that most evil and addictive of flavor profiles.
Can he resist? Will he survive?
Or will he roam the streets forever, another spice-addled zombie, spreading this cafe contagion, this doughnut disease, this venti virus?
But seriously folks, I tried to resist. I really did. It was early. I was groggy and borderline hangry. One thing led to another and I did it. I consumed a pumpkin donut.
Now hear me out, if I didn’t have all those calories, I probably couldn’t have made it through the work day to come home and finish this illustration you see above.
This is a follow up to probably my favorite piece from last year, maybe you’ve seen it. I’ve been mulling this over for a few months. I don’t know if there’ll be another one next year, I’m running out of spice-related puns.
I’m not really a shameless self-promoter, nor a shameless elf-promoter, or a stainless shelf unloader. But I do have some original designs on tee-shirts and mugs and such over at my redbubble.com shop. Check it out if you’re in the market for some bit of weird merch.
I want to share something a little more personal than usual. Above is an illustration I made for my wife’s birthday. She is both a leap year baby and a Harry Potter fan. This year we celebrated 9-3/4 by visiting London and I wanted to give her something to commemorate the trip in the style of J.K. Rowling’s illustrations.
