A thing of beauty

Finally posting this sketch from May. En route to the airport for TCAF, I encountered this fellow on the silver "T" line. He was mid-30s, 5'9", built and scruffy. Very much a man. As the car jostled him about, I suppose the friction of his sweatpants against his presumably naked nether region produced a visable reaction. He had to reposition and stand in such a way to disguise his erection. But inevitably, he could not hide it forever: as he prepared to disembark at Courthouse Station, my suspicions proved accurate. It is a memory I will cherish for some time.

At last! We send it to Pref and he was shocked it was notone ofthe drawings they choose to print. This is delightful!
In fact, it helped me feel fearless this summer when I decided to wear closed shorts whithout any underwear! :p

J: it's been a long time since I've seen it actually. :)

X: yeah, totally bizarre what PREF chose to run and not run. and, if I knew they were going to devote so much art space to me, I'd have done a 4 page comic for them!

and, yeah, no underwear is always a fine option IMHO!

Mr. Fish, do you think perhaps it was not so much the jiggle of the ride but your attention that caused his reaction?

Tim Fish said...

Anon: possible, but not likely!
