character analysis

One of my favorite things to do is people watch. I could sit on a bench somewhere and watch people for hours and hours. I like to try to guess where a person is going, what they do for a living, etc.

Here's what I think about today's subjects.

Based on the black t-shirt, this guy's favorite band is Pantera. He spends his free time headbanging and playing Dungeons and Dragons. By the way he treated his waitress I can tell he never waited tables, instead opting to work at CompUSA three nights a week while pursuing a bachelors degree in computer science.

This girl used to love the Dixie Chicks. In fact, she thought "Wide Open Spaces" was written just for her. That was, of course, until Natalie Maines spoke out against the President of the United States. Now she prefers Kenny Chesney. She always wears sneakers, but never works out. She always has chewing gum in her purse and takes perfect notes in different color pens.

Of course, I could be wrong.

Great comments on the subjects. Also, have to say I love the little skeleton in you icon pic.

You've got a real talent for quick rendering.

Love these sketches Suzanne and love the text too. I love people watching too. my friend and I used to drive to the local beach watching al the people passing by. We would choose a different topic everytime, maybe TV programme or chocolate bar or food. Then for each individual we'd say, for example, 'pizza', 'chips', 'health freak', 'sushi' etc. Maybe I shouldn't be telling people this!
Fun though!

Thanks for you comment on my blog. Your drawings are great. I especially like these vignettes with their "story" - could be a great series.

Thanks to everyone for their feedback. After I posted these I started worrying that perhaps I was a little harsh, maybe I shouldn't have shared these thoughts. Thanks for easing my mind.
