Here's an ad by artist, playwright, and cartoonist Lynda Barry. She created it for our restaurant in about 1979, or so. This is a scan of the original pen and ink (plus the screen tone material for shading and numerous transferred letters). The original image area is about 4.5" tall by 8.5" wide; it hangs on a wall in our house.

Lynda drew this for an ad we ran in the Seattle Weekly and maybe a few other publications (The Rocket? I can't remember). I think we paid her $35, and I believe she had to bug me a bit to get me to write her a check.
