I may have set a world record for longest menu, which probably doesn't surprise anyone that knows me. There are 12 pages of food, several pages of superfoods and health information, the FAQ and several pages of random book notes before getting to my list of favorite books. Each time I edit it, I add pages.
You can see my 36-page menu in PDF format here: Download El gato negro menu
The menu goes into effect Wednesday morning.
The menu covers are homemade, abstract collage creations. This batch was not quite as interesting as the last menus, which included the sex menu cover: a collage of a brochure from The Vagina Monologues and The Dysfunctional Family Doll Set with cross-drssing dad, S&M mom and the psychiatrist in the pink rabbit suit. I have a twisted sense of humor.
Despite the uniqueness and intricacy of some of the menu covers, most people don't notice them. Or they notice them they are falling apart becasue we haven't updated the menu and prices in more than two years and it's costing us money on any item with blueberries. But in good condition many people never noticed that they were holding the sex menu cover, Playboy centerfold and all.
I am also working on coffee bag labels and because I have to be different, I am using several different cats and mixing them with vibrant labels, of which there will be almost limitless color combinations. On top of the labels. I am creating 5x6 postcards and two sizes of stickers. I like that I can sell my art in my store!
Off to the printers tomorrow. Here are a few more of my images:
