I took my inspiration from a vintage Don the Beachcomber menu, which can be seen on pages 72-73 of the Book of Tiki. Some of my recent website projects have called for me to do some drawing — brushing the dust and cobwebs off of my drawing skills has been a lot of fun. Thankfully, 72 dpi is pretty forgiving, and I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Hope you all like the new look, and please let me know if anything is wonky!
