My Life, The Universe and Everything

Truths I learn. Barriers I seek to break. Let me scream.

Ode to those Unknown Artists

Posted by themischord on June 19, 2007

I come across artists of different forms, varying talent each day at the train station. Some are good, some are pathetic. But this one left me in total awe. He was making sketches of people waiting for the train. Unlike the regular artist, he has to get it right before the next train comes along, which is typically only a few minutes. Of course, he should get it right, and also hope to make something out of it.He made my sketch in about 2 minutes. I’m not sure if it looks like me, but I take the image to be an expression of how I looked to him. I was fascinated by the particular features he highlighted. People have told me in words, what I am to them. This is the first time someone showed me how I look.
