Today. A lot of times I see people who remind me of other people or things. This lady was shaped like a artillery shell and had hair like the lady on the screen at Star Tours who tell us to stow our belongings beneath our seats.

The last one was from monday, this one was from yesterday. I didn't have a chance to scan them so they are up a little late.
It's always fun to see little kids toddling behind people, especially really tall people. This little guy was trying to keep his hat on and keep up with Gramps at the same time.

This must have been his older brother giving him pointers on how to ride the bike.

... spray painted from head to toe, bags and all.

This guy was far from any boat that I could see, but he sure looked like he needed to be on one.

This is from yesterday. I didn't get a chance to post it until now.
Today's choice was a butcher I saw walking near a bus stop. Or at least it was a guy in a butcher's outfit with a ball cap on. Hmmm...Maybe he was a chef. Maybe I've already forgotten. I'll try to at least do a sketch of him to post later.

Today's specimen: Giganticus T-shirtius of the sagging-pant variety.

I spotted these two walking into a Culver City gas station while I stopped to get gas this morning. There was something very sweet and cartoony about them.

Vest of Many Colors

It's overcast again today, so this lady's bright vest just jumped out at me.

Rainy Day

This guy was standing in the median along Exposition. He had plenty of time to cross, but seemed content to stay where he was, despite the rain.

Here are some more people from past days...

I saw this gem right at the moment she pulled her fist back to bop some guy on the sidewalk. He was trying to calm her down, but she didn't seem to be backing off. I didn't stick around to see what happened.
It's fun to imagine what might have been. I was told she somewhat resembles Madam Mim...and yes, she actually did. I didn't really caricature her that much.
He pulled up from a side street in a hurry. I noticed the mesh hat and his nose.

Well, he was...just standing there facing away from the street, with his belly to the wind.

Green Jeans

My first impression was that this guy was storming out of his house and down the front walk.
My second impression was that this might just be the way he walks.

Camera Man

This guy was standing in a crowd in Exposition Park and pointing to something on (or above) the USC campus. Unfortunately, I didn't see what he was pointing at. I couldn't get my head turned fast enough before the trees blocked my view. I did see some motorcycle cops and a Star Wagon, so maybe there was some filming going on. Whatever it was, he thought it was funny. I spotted four good candidates today. I hope I have time to sketch them out before I forget them.

Bus Stop

I saw her waiting happily at a bus stop a few blocks west of USC. She wasn't the only one there,
but she looked the friendliest. Must be the grandmotherly smile and the orange glasses.

Funny Hats

I had already chosen the person to be drawn today when I stopped at the last light on my way to work. I spotted the red hatted one in the parking lot of Dinah's Chicken and immediately changed my mind. And when I saw her friend skip up in the purple hat it sealed the deal.
I only saw them briefly before they entered the restaurant. I wish they would have talked outside a bit longer so I could have gotten a better image in my mind. And unfortunately I didn't see any others with them to get more ideas.
One thing I did notice was that as they greeted and hugged they seemed to make no remarks to each other about the hats. No pointing or extra laughing. Just like "Hi! Great to see you. Let's eat!"
