The return of old herring bones.


I was drawing at a busy mall yesterday when I had the good fortune to catch up with one of my favourite muses, old herringbones, so-called because of his herringbone pattern coat. (See, Hot off the press, posted 4th February.) This time round he had the good grace to take his Ushanka off, and in a rare moment of contemplation, paused long enough for me to capture his dour expression.

  1. His face is wonderful. Love the structure, great nose, brow, frown… Looks like he’d be a really interesting and intelligent person to talk to! There is something really captivating about this that makes it one of my all-time favourites so far!
