The Shadow in the Coffee house
I sketched this gent in a coffee house where he was very intently reading a paper item on the table. I tried to capture his features when he put his hand down. In my imagination he looked like the pulp action hero "The Shadow" without his mask or broad-brimmed black hat. I don't think he knew that I was drawing him. I try to make the drawing as simple as possible because I don't have time in the real world to work on realism. The imaginary world pervades the world of mundane reality. "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows....."
