Bucket Hat

March 20, 2010

Saw this old sort hanging around outside a newsagent. The shop wasn’t open and he waited around for about 20 minutes, not doing very much other than blinking, looking around and staring at me. Then he wandered off. What a story. I bet you can’t wait for the next installment.

Due the abnormally large size of my forehead, I am inclined to lean forward and furrow my brow. Humph


What’s this in the paper then?

August 2, 2009

What's in the bloody papers, eh?

Nothing! That’s what. Humph. Should have expected as much. Honestly, don’t know why I bother. News? This isn’t news, it’s just rubbish. Michael Jackson? What’s he got to do with anything? Why can’t they write about important things. I have half a mind to write to the editor. Probably can’t read. Humph.


Mysterious in Black

image4-1

Collars turned up, cap peak pulled down over face, 3-day stubble. All very mysterious. Used to see a lot of this type of character in the late eighties and early nineties – men who look out at the world from behind the pages of the NME (or similar alternative/indie music press). Lots of frowning and introspection and peering through John-Lennon* spectactles.

*More recently sported by Harry Potter

alcatraz

Emo-looking young lady reading about Alcatraz on the Northeren Line. I didn’t think anyone would be interested in something so old these days but then, I suppose that’s history for you.


Melting patient

I was at the doctor’s recently (minor complaint – in for a referral for an x-ray) and not fancying any of the magazines on offer, whiled the time away with a bit of sketching. The woman on the right was suffering from some sort of melting disorder – fudging, I think. There was a lot of ‘humphing’ and it sort of put me off…


Where’d I put my Sunnies?

This man had the archetypical ‘having-a-bad-day’ look about him. Might have had something to do with the floating face that was following him around or maybe he just couldn’t remember where he left his shades.
