short pants make me angry
Once upon a time, in high school, I was an art student. I soon discovered that I was incapable of drawing straight lines. I could sketch, I could make decent caricatures, but straight lines put an end to any chance of a future art career. One thing I did love to do, however, was draw people on the subway; a hurried activity, usually accompanied by clever paper covering techniques (One time I was particularly obvious, and my subject was non to pleased about my rendition of his hairline.) So I figured now that I have a place to share my doodles, I might as well take up the old habit again. This one is of an awfully cheery fellow on the five train.
