at a picnic a few weeks ago i ran into my neighbors, matt + quavin, who had just bought a food truck with the plans of creating the lucky old souls burger truck (named for the lucky old souls jazz club they're in the process of opening in our neighborhood). as we got into discussing what the truck would look like, there was a lightbulb moment among us. they've been fans of my work for a while (their infant son is quite the drooler + i'm told he only wears girls can tell bibs). lo + behold, after an whirlwind exchange of ideas + one awesome lunch meeting over, you guessed it, burgers, they commissioned me to create a series of illustrations for the truck.
since they were about as excited as you could be to go pick the truck up from the shop that did the vinyl graphics for it, they invited me to tag along to see it for the first time. who says no to being among the first to see a burger truck featuring your own drawings scaled up to bigger than yourself? not this girl. so along i went.
(here's the teaser photo i tweeted the other day, riding back to the studio inside the truck)
it feels pretty awesome to be part of such a fun project. if you're in philadelphia + are lucky enough to catch the lucky old burger truck (follow them on twitter to learn their location + more!), i highly recommend the burger. (with smoked blue cheese! and housemade ketchup!) everything the truck serves is locally, responsibly sourced + made from scratch, and it all tastes super, super great. enjoy!
