This fellow gave off quite a different vibe to the one discussed in the previous post. That of total concentration. And, apart from scanning the newspaper with his magnifying glass, didn’t move a muscle, hence the finished look of this drawing.
He read The Chronicle Herald mechanically from start to finish. Now my guess is, he’s a long suffering copy-editor, and that his poor eyesight must be the result of an occupational hazard common of his profession.
Thank you copy-editor for being so still, and your powers of concentration set an example to us all.
