Currency crises and transatlantic-cum-continental givings and misgivings might seem to bear an air of loose relevance to the now-underway Euro Cup of football, but it wouldn’t take much thematic stretching to bring them into a common discussion. The same themes, however, might be a bit less directly relevant to art, and maybe not the best conversational matters for a round of friendly drinking.

Unless one were to tie them all together in a series of drink-inspired, whimsical verses accompanied by a suite of fine drawings by artist Adam Thompson.

And so has one done, on After Vasari, with “A Happy Hour Ode to Troubled Unions, Currency Exits, Financial Crises and European Cups.”

Have a gander and a read while you watch Greece take on the Czech Republic today. Or while you wait for the not-altogether-unlikely Grexit to take place later this month.

Cheers? Goal?

Both!
