Belljar Café


This is another little cafe off the beaten track. It's just east of the trendy Roncesvalle neighbourhood in the west end of the city and it's a relatively new cafe. It has a 1950's feel to it, even though I didn't capture it in this image, it screams of chilling out.

Apparently the name was gotten from Sylvia Plath's novel and instead of having the negative connotation applied to this cafe, the owner wanted this a place to be an incubator of ideas. Works for me.

Really super! I love the way you add loads of detail but it becomes a design element rather than fussy. Lovely textures here. I'm beginning to wonder just how many cafes you have over there! ;)

Wow, lots of textures everywhere, and you wrote the whole list on the board! This must have taken hours to finish! I love it!

Thanks all. I had a great time drawing this image, even though I had that "uh oh" moment early in this drawing.
