1001 Black Men–#142

Tucked away near the dressing room of almost every women’s section in nearly every department store in the United States, there’s a comfortable chair or sofa that almost always seems to be occupied by a husband or boyfriend waiting for his female companion to try on some clothing. Some people truly enjoy helping their partners pick out new clothes. This gentleman in this drawing, however, seemed more impatient than engaged. In fact, I noticed him and his female companion because of his body language. His jaw was set, his arms were crossed, and his brow was furrowed in a way that suggested disgruntlement. There were two other men in the seating area near that day, and he was the only one who seemed to be in a bad mood, probably because he was also the only one who hadn’t brought something to read.
