Walk to Work Wednesdays

In August, New Plymouth organised a promotion to get people to walk, cycle or take the bus to work during this winter month. You could apply for a card from several cafes, and, each of the five Wednesdays, get a coffee for a dollar. Since I bike to work pretty much every day, I signed up and figured I'd just carry on cycling... but then, I hurt my back. It took a few days just to stand up so I wasn't doing anything for quite a while. The irony is that during this campaign to get people out of their cars, I've haven't driven to work more all year.
I'm on the mend now as long as I take it easy. I caught the last two Wednesdays and came away with this sketch of the inside of a cafe called Joe's Garage.


  1. That is ironic, funny how things work out! Pleased to hear your back is improving though, maybe a good chance to take it easy and sketch more?? That cafe owner must be a Frank Zappa fan.

  2. This place was very comfortable. Restrooms were decent. Coming here with my friends was an amazing experience. This is my favorite event venue Chicago now, because of its excellent food, perfect lighting, vibrant atmosphere and great ventilation.
