I'm positive you've never seen them before because the main Chimera alien design wasn't approved until after I left for the freelance world.
That was the main Chimera design back in 2004 before it was eventually changed to this guy(which still isn't the final design, but very close).
I've added more. Some aerial shots flying over various parts of the US and some from Yosemite.
So, one of my favorite places to eat in the world is Swan Oyster Depot in San Francisco.
The oyster is the perfect food and when you get great ones like I had in SF, they are truly sublime. All you need is a tiny squeeze of lemon or a drizzle of mignonette and you're ready to go.
The flavors and textures are so clean and pure.
I had 2 dozen Kumamotos(only 1 dozen shown below), which were superb. Sweet and tasty. I wanted to order 3 dozen more, but hey....this was breakfast :)
I also had a dozen Blue Point oysters and those were more briny and significantly larger.
Seafood salad with fresh Dungeness crab(in season back in Nov when I was there), cocktail shrimp and regular shrimp. So fresh and so good.
One day when I get some time away from work and go back to the Bay area, I will step onto hallowed ground at the French Laundry.
And you thought this blog was just about art.
I started this yesterday, worked very briefly on it and then worked a few hours on it today to finish it.
I'm getting that itch to go play some Wolfenstein:Enemy Territory now after a 1-year hiatus.
