Thought I’d bring you all up-to-date with a drawing, piping hot, out of the sketchbook. I drew this gentleman less than an hour ago in a busy mall. He’s one of my favourite characters, but never hangs about too long. I was in a good spot, then someone sat in my line of sight, so I had to move. I’m obsessed by his herring-bone pattern coat, the old fellow left before I could draw in all the zig-zags, so I had to rely on my imagination and some visual notes, scribbled on the right.
