One bright day in the middle of the night Jason Chatfield is sitting at a bar when inspiration hits.
I was sitting at a bar ordering a beer when the bartender asked me for a card to keep my tab open.
I told the bartender to ‘keep it open’ and as I said it, I turned my head to the street-facing window to see a hot dog cart.
And a cartoon is born.
For reasons Jason explains it didn’t sell. Even through multiple interpretations.
But this was a joke the cartoonist couldn’t get out of his mind.
More often than not, I just blink and get on with the next cartoon. But there was something about this one… I just couldn’t let it go.
