The Story

While working for the restaurant that shall not be named, I met an aspiring Somm by the name of Kristen. We worked together for about 4 month before the lies, theft, harassment, mold, and overpriced pre-frozen food ripped the workplace apart.

By the time November 2021 came, both me and her were looking for new work. I searched for new clients to fill the void. She got a job at the Japanese restaurant Japango on Boulder's Pearl St. Mall.

Months later, I went into Japango. I didn't see her but I did meet the bartender Stanley. He liked my art so I came a couple of times more over the next few months. As I ate, I noticed that he is quite talented. On my second or so visit, I ended up sitting next to my target demographic: a drunk affluent person. I talked to him about my art and he gave me advice. Eventually the man next to me told Stanley that he wants a custom $50 drink. Stanley did his thing and I have a sip before the intend patron finishes what I charge for a 8x8 print in minutes.

The next time I came to Japango I knew what I wanted. I asked Stanley to make me a cocktail that is floral. This is what he did: The Gin Blossom.

M. J. Star's Headshot

About the Artist

The only thing I enjoy more than eating Colorado food culture is drawing it.

I'm M. J. Star. I moved to Colorado in 2019 and have been drawing digitally for almost 2 decades. In early 2022, I started drawing art that depicts Colorado's rich food and drink culture. I've been traveling the state going to various breweries, wineries, cideries, bars, and restaurants. I try their food and drinks, and transform all of that into art that celebrates Colorado's blossoming local food culture.

My shop features all original art work draw on my mobile tablet.
