As I’ve said before, it’s hard to know when to stop with an idea. This bar patron with no qualms about cheating his robot bartender started as an idea for focusing just on a bust of a sort of space pirate, but it kept expanding until it became what you see here. The bar itself was inspired by some of the dives I’ve visited here in Alaska, complete with water stained wallpaper and more bumper sticker slogans than you can read before your vision becomes too impaired and you’re asked to leave.
