About

In 1994 I published a book called "Having a Hell of a Time, Wish You Were Here; A Drunkards Guide to the Bars of the Lower Eastside". This book will be a sequel, called "How I Spent My Permanent Vacation; Another Drunkards Guide to the Bars of NYC". These are not quite guide books, they're more of anecdotal humorous commentary on my experiences in these bars, with accompanying b&w ink drawings made on site. 

I sit in bars and draw in a small sketchbook(approx. 7" x4"). The focus of my art here is  the feel of the place, what make's it unique, decorations, atmosphere. I try to capture the employees likeness, but patrons I often make up, as they don't sit still too long. I tend to finish about 85-95% of each piece then tweek 'em at home. The stories concern my interactions with patrons and staff. I am not reviewing the establishment nor highlighting food/drinks specials, leave that to Shecky's.

If you're an NYC pub crawler, I think you'll like it!

It is a paperback, approximately 128 pages. I have a backcover with a contribution by Mickey Leigh (I Slept With Joey Ramone).

I am looking for money to cover the printing costs. My goal is $2500, but, the more I get, the more books I'll be able to print.

Thank you & Cheers!

    WIN A DATE WITH CRAZY GLENN!
    Well, this book kinda describes how I can't get a date, ha ha! But, here's what I'm actually offering; Got a bar in NYC you think I might have missed? I'l met ya there, have a coupla drinks with ya (you're buying). I'll draw a picture and after I take it home to scan it for inclusion in the book, you'll get the framed piece (This offer goes for bar owners & employees as well). Plus, you get a signed copy of "How I Spent My Permanent Vacation; Another Drunkards Guide to the Bars of NYC", of course.
    Please ask if the bar is already included before pledging. These bars should be easily accessible by subway.To be included in the book we'll have to do this by Nov 1(preferably much sooner).
    Here's a list of the Bars that I have drawn &probably will be featured: Visit here for a list of available sketches: http://www.glennwernig.com/index.html
