Last week we visited Jackson Hole, an incredible retro diner located in New Jersey. I’ve been going there for at least 12 years, but had forgotten about it until i saw a fellow ipad artist’s painting of a tabletop jukebox. At the same time, another artist was looking for breakfast themed ipad art, so i decided that this would be a great opportunity to eat there again. Full disclosure-we had breakfast at dinner time. Thats the beauty of the diner-getting breakfast at any time.
The table tops had a great pink boomerang pattern. The selection of songs on the jukebox has not changed since i’ve been there last, including the Beatles, Monkees, the Stones and Lou Reed. We listened to Bobby Darren’s “Mac the Knife” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I got some great shots of our plates of eggs and waffles as reference photos for my ipad paintings (and we split a hot fudge sundae for dessert). Here are two of my ipad paintings using Sketchbook Pro and ArtRage:
