Wild Tie

June 3, 2010

Check out my sartorial elegance. The rest of you don’t even get as much as a mention. Bunch a’ loosers. You want to look good, get yourself a decent suit – tailored, not your off-the-rack rubbish. And the tie is the clincher. Got that?

And a haircut. And a beard.

Over and out. Got cool stuff to do.

Berti Pleasant

Everything about him is affable, if somewhat loosely defined. But then, that’s part of his charm you see. Good old Bertie. Be nice if you see him.


Thin-necked Youth

March 26, 2010

Something about this guy reminded me of the ‘pimply teenager’ character from the Simpsons – the one with the semi-broken voice, usually works in the burger bar / ice-cream store / fairground. Anywhere Homer hands over cash for a disappointing experience. Can’t say that happened on the train. Kept my eyes peeled but no sign of a fat, yellow man in blue pants. Bummer.


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.


Snug as a Bug

February 19, 2010

Our new son. Relatively easy to draw because he doesn’t move around much (yet) and at the same time, tricky because his proportions are different to anything I’m used to. He spends most of time doing what he does in the picture, although he wasn’t very co-operative last night. So, it’s bags under the eyes and bumping into things for us, blissful slumber and food on demand for him all day today.


Brolly Boy (Pen & Ink)

Brollyboy

Midweek evening, flowers in hand. Love token? Peace offering? Commiserations? There is confidence in the posture but the umbrella suggests that this is someone who arrives prepared for a sudden turn in the weather.

Anxious couple (pen, ink, felt-tip)

There was a lot of whispering. He was very uptight, lots of leaning in and muttering. She was a bit distant. They settled down after a bit.
