A new year


Conte sketch of two comedians that played at Spellbinder’s Comedy Club in Houston, Texas in the 1990’s. Owner, Lynn Karnes wanted a rough sketch style illustration to harmonize with the Houston map that was very popular. The microphone was part of her logo.

Have a new year ahead. Looking wonderful. Have a few design projects for SHR. Looking for many new blessings in this new year for all of my creative friends. Here is an old illustration done twenty years ago for Spellbinder’s Comedy Club. Ms. Karnes was my boss while I was in college and she gave me the opportunity to create
a corporate identity package after I graduated. Worked my way through school at her comedy club and met some famous people. One that we all know is Tim Allen. He was even funnier back then. Many other comedians came through the club but the other most remarkable star was Clint Black who at the time was performing at Shirlock’s Pub next to the club. A fellow employee was a classmate at Katy High School of Klint’s and introduced me once when he came back years later to Shirlock’s Pub. What a fun place Spellbinder’s was and what a great group of people I knew there.
