Alex and I have known each other for a while. We first met at Le Web Paris 2005. He was living in France at the time, he moved to Miami a couple of years later, about the same time I first started going there on a regular basis.
As my business got more and more Miami-based (I now visit there once a month, for around 4-10 days), we became good friends. When I’m in town Alex, Maria and I will usually meet for drinks at least once or twice, probably at Monty’s. It’s become part of my Miami ritual.
I drew this cartoon back in January, while I was staying in South Beach, Miami. Up to that point, it was the longest I had ever stayed in that town- ten days or so.
It was quite an experience. South Beach is full of random people- tourist and local- walking around, almost aimlessly. I wandered up and down Ocean Drive again and again, trying to see stories in the faces. All their faces seemed to tell stories. Not all of them were happy ones.
