Mind on Loup

“Tim & Jeremy’s Mind on Loup” is a collaborative project between Jeremy Haines and Tim Farnham. Both are waiters at The Cafe Loup located on W 13th St. in New York City. During slow times at work, to stave off boredom and also to block out annoying co-workers, the two young men draw pictures. These pictures are made using ink and what is called the “Triple Dupe Pad,” a book of paper used to place orders in the kitchen. The drawings usually take about a week to make, all the while also being used by fellow employees to take orders; this sometimes leads to other collaborators or in a couple cases, to the loss of the work. The drawings are then scanned and colored in Photoshop where they come to life in stunning technicolor! The subject matter varies from piece to piece, as they are made over a long course of time and under various moods and states of mind. They all retain a playfulness that serves as a coping mechanism after spending a night catering to the endless needs of hungry patrons.
