Yesterday: Snail Diner

For this week’s edition of Yesterday, I painted an old-fashioned diner with an elderly snail enjoying some bacon and eggs, inspired by @slimetownusa on TikTok. As shown through the window, the newspaper, and the TV, there’s some trouble in the Snail Diner. While I wanted to make a cute painting, I also wanted to connect the 50s-style diner with the Cold War era going on at the time, in which there was a large nuclear war scare. The significance of the diner patron being a snail is up for interpretation!
