Step5h: Meet famous people and rich people and encourage them to buy your art.

Step 5j: Draw another waiter (not me, in spite of the resemblance, really) spilling food and wine all over.

Step 5k: Color in drawing of waiter.  Use pretty colors.


Concept, drawing and commentary by Marty Coleman, who never spilled wine or food on anyone but did drop a few plates.
