Nothing to do with Michael Jackson. This is a slightly more representative drawing than that captured in a previous post. I’ve sketched this lady a few times. She frequently sits beside another woman – also an avid reader.

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.
