This started out as a random doodle before I decided to turn it into an ad for a "wholesome" 1950s diner. It's targeted towards the whole family---even the rebellious teenage boys. ;)

Giving the place a name was a toughie, but I wanted something evocative of African-American culture, or rather how whites perceived it during that time period. I decided something in the genre of Uncle Ben or Aunt Jemima would fit best due to their nonthreatening, servile connotations, so "Aunt Maddie's" it was.
