Loring Cafe, Downtown Oakland

In contrast to Cristina's colorful work in the last post, I responded to the stimulation of the Loring Cafe decor by just doing line drawings.  The cafe and bar has only been open for three months, a branch of another cafe in Minneapolis.  According to the hostess, the owners gutted and converted a former mattress store, exposing beams and adding columns, brickwork, paintings and statues.


The two men having dinner at the table behind us are actually much more handsome than they look in this sketch!
