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.

Multiple Personas

This is actually two people. The first got up and left, so I borrowed another person’s head. Sort of grafted it on. Not sure if it works. Some people say it looks evil.

Like many people, this young man has oddly sized feet. It’s very common to have one slightly larger than the other. As casually dressed as he was, this guy was pin-sharp when it came to clothing. I couldn’t see a crease, but would almost swear that his jeans were ironed. Still, he’s cool.

Surly youth in Pen and Ink

Most people don’t notice, much less care about whether someone is drawing them or not. This young man wasn’t the happiest. At least, I don’t think he was happy. Hard to tell because I couldn’t see his eyes. Oh to be seventeen and angry with the world again. Not.
