I Can Wait

Waiting doesn’t bother me. I have a book and a massive handbag, chock-full of entertainments. You’ll never see the half of them, though but you can look all you like.

This lady had a lot of presence. She dresses entirely in black, most of the time.

Airport thrillers are bad for your brain – especially if read out of that context. This lady’s handbag caught my eye. It was amazingly complex, a real utility item; pockets, straps, zippers, heavy stitching, thick leather and jet black. Complete contrast to her leisure suit, soft shoes and heavily-patterned blouse. Maybe it was full of spy stuff. We shall never know.

It’s a shame in way that this is a black and white drawing. This lady was a riot of colour. I’m pretty much certain that she had the entire spectrum covered. Very relaxed and restful she was too. Maybe she was worn out from the energy of her wardrobe.

Some people hug their possessions and accessories as if they’re convinced someone is about to rob them. I’m not overly happy with this drawing. The passenger beside the subject spotted me and asked to see the drawing, as she was getting off the train. Not sure if she was disappointed that it wasn’t her but she turned it upside down, then right way up, then upside down again before handing it back and saying. She said, ‘Hmmm’, then hopped off. Then everyone stared at me. Demanding public, I tell you.

Rugged up

I don’t know if she was day-dreaming or trying to stare me down. Hopefully it was the former and not the latter…
