We’ve all received one at one time or another… The restaurant “guest check.” Most likely it came after breakfast at the diner or luncheonette, and the closest thing to art on it, was a smiley face drawn by the waitress. Guest Checks is a site dedicated to something that never gets old — taking the mundane and making it beautiful.
With help from some fine artists, the lifeless guest check becomes canvas. Although the art doesn’t follow any sort of theme — in most cases, having nothing to do with food or restaurants at all — it’s the familiarity that we have with the pale green, lined backdrop and “Guest Check” header that keeps us engaged. And, the illustrations are pretty awesome too.
Just don’t get any ideas about leaving your guest check art as a tip. The waitress might decide to kill you just to make it worth something.
