The green man by Velica The green man by Velica
It was the day after I came back from holidays. The skyes were grey again and everybody was far away. After lunch I drifted to the High Street and sat down in one of the local pubs.

It was amazing how only one day had passed and I was already feeling trapped. I started sketching the pub - the red confy chairs, the dusty carpet and the maze-like architecture of the place.

An old man sat in front of me with his beer. Like me he was alone. He couldn't keep himself from staring as I finished the drawing.

He finished the beer and grabbed his coat. Came close to me and asked if I was sketching him. I noticed a surprise in his eyes when he saw the little strapped man on the chair.

I couldn't explain how that man was actually me.
He smiled and walked away, slowly, in that typical old man's walk.

I'm often feeling like this too.
Trapped.
But maybe I'm just too lazy.

This is so great, as I said before, I am inspired to go draw in public now.
Is the colouring digital or...?

ai ai ai... e assim as novas gerações vão esquecendo as vitória do passado e os erros repetir-se-ão.

a musica do ranger do texas tem uma paret que é assim

"cus the eyes of the ranger are upon you
everything you do his gonna see..."

portanto a malta posta um boneco e tu apareces logo depois a comentar :)

é um elogio porque eu sou fã incondicional do super-expressivo chico morris.
