A Quick Sketch Portrait As Drawn by a Stranger on Metro

One of the things about living in a big city is that one runs into all kinds of people. Every day, I ride to and from work on the metro and over the last few years I’ve noticed that there are a few people who do sketches during their ride.

On Friday, I noticed that one of them seemed to be watching me crochet. Sure enough, as he got off the train he dropped this in my lap and told me to have a good weekend. So this is me, in my Jayne hat, working on a new swamp green Tiny Cthulhu for the store:

A drawing of me, wearing a Jayne hat with ear flaps, and crocheting. My face looks like I'm concentrating. It's drawn using simple pen lines on thick paper.

    Ah, the metro. How I miss it. I got a lot of homework done on there!

    I never met anyone doing a sketch, though. That’s pretty cool. I like that you’re wearing a Jayne hat.

    Very cool! And talk about capturing a perfect Ruth moment.

    cool. if I had drawing skills more advanced than rudimentary stick figures, this is the kind of thing I’d imagine myself doing.

    Great sketch
