Yeap! Lets mix it up some!
Please note it doesnt need to be on a streetside in france (allthough thats an awesome idea! Something contemporary!) but it can also be like a cafe 300 years in the future on floor 568 with huge glass windows whatching cars fly by, some postapocalyptic underground bunker cantina have fun with it its a loose topic
ooh, this sounds great!
I think we can expect some interesting entries...
hope I have time.

What the hell Andrew!!! Damn it.
Im sorry am I missing something? how is that a cafe?
It's a brilliant drawing, but.... Im confused
Scroll to the right, there is a sign hanging that says "Cafe", and they are sitting outside of it, seemingly talking, reading the paper, and drinking.
Not what I would have immediatly thought of by looking at the topic, but that makes it all the better in my eyes. Plus, it just kicks ass as a digital painting, very well designed, great custom brushes I see, nice texture, and I bet he did it in a fraction of the time it would take me to do - and I still wouldn't come close. Of course, I'm aiming to improve on that last part!
It's got a really crisp, refreshing atmosphere. Great work, I like the contrast of subject matter - very simple, low-key Cafe exterior with high tech machinery.
Although if I were the cafe owner I'd probably request they redirect the turret while dining there. hehe
fresh, ley!! tho u should prolly be flexing these muscles in IDW
oh! duh. scrolling...what a concept... more to the point it's really good
that is sawwwweeeet.
I blinked and in a flash awesome art appeared. That is a nice piece AndrewLey. Thats quicker and slicker.
Thats a sweet pic AndrewLey. I got idea for this one that far beyond my abilities but what he hell. So i probaly won't be posting anything for this one.
Lame... my ideas are always beyond my abilities....ain't stopped me yet
Awesome sketch Andrew, cool style and idea as always
This cafe is located on Mars, in a bout 140 years from now. It's a popular hang-out for couples, as privacy is provided, i.e. tables are far apart or even are located in seperate pods. The skylight allows visitors to enjoy the orange/red Martian sky during the day and a, usually very clear, view of the stars in the evening, all while sipping some imported coffee or enjoying the large variety of tea flavours. (Notice the "u" in flavours - this is no coincidence because on Mars, British English prevails. The first mayo(u)r of Mars City had a penchant for British English and made it policy. Thus "U"-keys of keyboards on Mars are often slightly less ledgible than the average keyboard on Earth. This is of course, because the more frequent usage of the "u" on Mars wears off the letter paint, which is still just paint, even in 140 years from now.
Tea, it must be said, is somewhat expensive on Mars, for obvious reasons. Coffee too I guess. Sucks to live on Mars.
Wait, no, it doesn't suck on Mars, because gravity is only one third and walking is so easy on the muscles, that - well, they tend to fade away. Which is bad I guess. Fitness centers are abundant on Mars to make up for this.
One more note about the cafe: It is art deco/50s style inspired and waitresses sometimes complain to their boss about the many stairs they have to take to bring people their coffee. Hot coffe and stairs of course equals trouble, but they get paid well and the cafe is pretty friggin' romantic! Check it out:
