I noticed a cute fellow waiting for the subway this morning, and he was eagerly eating a burrito. We ended up sitting across from one another, so I started to sketch first how he was holding the burrito, then the folds of cloth in his jacket and jeans. I was trying to note shadows, the shine of light on his shoes, and the salt stains on one of his pant legs. Then I very quickly drew his face as I neared my stop. He asked if he could see the sketch; I showed him and thanked him for being a willing subject. We'll leave it at that.
