On the Way to Work

We live near the zoo and only a block away from a Metra train station.
This morning while drinking a cup of hot chocolate, I watched the commuters make their way to the Metra station, off to work on this very snowy Chicago day.

I saw this fellow and grabbed my watercolors and made this sketch of him.
He was about 7 feet tall, hairy, matching hat and briefcase and very much in a hurry.
I watched this afternoon to see him make his way back home, but it seems he didn't return.


  1. Love the drawing and the commentary. This should be a regular feature.

  2. Late night exhaustion can do some fun things with your thinking process.
