Illustration Friday : Capture




There's an Italian restaurant near my house where you can watch the chefs at work. They'll toss these gigantic doughy discs in the air and capture them with such grace. Then after sprinkling the toppings, they stick it on a wood panel and shove it into a flaming stone stove. While waiting for your table you can practically feel like your mouth watering like one of those cartoon characters from the Looney Toons.
