1001 Black Men–#104

The holidays are over, and for me that means back into the bowels of UC Berkeley’s Doe Library for some quality time with the microfilm reader! In early January, the Doe Library is like a desert, with a small number of employees popping up here or there, but few actual patrons. Today’s drawing is inspired by that unique species of patron who actually does show up in the library during the winter break, the dissertation writer. Bleary-eyed, bespectacled, dressed in rumpled-but-comfortable clothing, and occassionally shoeless, he (or she) can be spotted deep in the stacks, scratching his head and blinking, as shocked by the sight of you as you are by the sight of him.
