The Vampire Chefs was a concept that exploded into my head after a visit to an elegant Italian shack of o restaurant on Melrose Blvd circa mid 1980’s. The “kitchen” was behind a counter at the front door. It was a late-night place. Some of the most fantastic pasta was created behind that counter. The chef was young, long ponytailed and unconventional looking. The story line has been a work in progress with illustrations and story additions created over a period of years.
