tailors & hobos & skunks

Inspired by A Fine Balance.

The girl in the middle panhandles around Burrard & Granville Skytrain stations. Blows smoke into your face while you walk by....
This is a drawing of a little blue stuffed skunk I bought from Jocelan. I loff eet! Check out her store here and you can take a squishy friend home with you too.Oh yeah here is also another doodle of the sphynx from some time ago. I should stop drawing her with this hair as it doesn't really suit the story.

Hey CLio.
These panhandlers are all awesome. I love the use of the medium to sell the drawing. Great stuff.

hey my skunk!
i think i recognize the hobo too!
hehee thanks for the ad!

LFW said...

God damn.

Quite excellent.

my fave is the first really old hobo just sitting there clutching his legs, you captured his homeless desperation and mental anguish perfectly. I hope afterwards you left them a small donation.

Skunks, and sphinxs with queer hairdos, priceless.

cheers to you

your fan
