"Train Guy"

A sketch of a person I saw on the platform at Ashmont station, waiting for the next train.

He was first leaning against a pillar and made this cascade of strong horizontals that caught my eye.

Nominally, he was dressed in: boots, jeans, a t-shirt, a pea coat, a knit cap, sunglasses and a scarf - a list of items other men were wearing on the train as well, almost exactly - but his presentation was extremely different and unique.

I was not surprised to see him on the train later reading an issue of Vogue; he put together his outfit rather deliberately.

This kind of casual, everyday character design is impressive to me.
