This new multi-day sketchbook gallery post begins on 02 May 2022, as a gallery of glances of we who commute. I will sustain it for as long as possible – Mashallah.
I am especially proud of this one, because when Father Bambrick saw it, he introduced me to my newest friend Pat, who was both very flattered and very relieved she’d just had a haircut before I drew her. (Father Bambrick said it was a very good likeness but asked if I could perhaps leave out the roof-leak-raindrip-catcher-bucket thingy next time.)
Some people are more likely to be overlooked than others – more inclined to be marginalized – more prone to being unnoticed. But there is glory in every person, and it can ALWAYS be drawn out.
Thank you, Pat!
I started with that man. As I told Svetlana, all of the most important things I’ve done in my life have begun with a single person.
(For the record: I’ve been challenging that statement to myself since I said it out loud to her, but I have to stand by my words – I haven’t been able to recall a single counterexample yet.)
