Parking Lot Characters: The Magnificent Beard

The Parking Lot Characters Series is a collection of semi-finished drawings of people I observe while sketching and drinking coffee in a local parking lot, which is shared by super market, a liquor store, a big corporate coffee shop and a handful of other small businesses. I then take the rough sketches back to the studio and rework them in ink and color before posting them here.

Howdy Kids! Earlier this afternoon I was out getting coffee and running some errands, which means that I was out in my car sketching and drinking my coffee (so that I wouldn't have to listen to Starbucks' crappy music selection). If you're a people-watcher like me, a busy parking lot can be a treasure trove of interesting characters and assorted goof-balls. Today's lucky winner is this gentleman  who was sporting a truly magnificent beard. Incidentally, the real background was  more a suburban setting, but this is what came out of my pencil, so it looks like he's strolling around downtown, when he was actually in more of a strip-mall type place.

Thanks for stopping by.
