February - March 2010
Artist: Jana Kinsman
Jana Kinsmans doodles are uncomplicated in concept and charmingly sweet. In this move from pen and paper to the Whistler’s store-front windows, she draws her inspiration from the bar’s clientele. As a lifelong Midwesterner, Jana appreciates the fortitude of the Chicagoan who waits in the wintry cold for a warm spot and a stiff drink. These moments are her muse. Her doodles will stand alongside you in line and provide fodder for conversation, evoke your imagination and if nothing else, plant a smile on your face.
“Winter at the Whistler” is perfectly simple in its execution. These characters are your comrades; outside and inside the Whistler.
