It’s not hard to figure out why I noticed the gentleman in this drawing. He was the only person in the Macy’s men’s store who was dressed in all white…and he wasn’t a store employee. He was just stylin’– and stylin’ HARD. Even though he was easy to notice, and for obvious reasons, this drawing made me think about how it is that I decide who to draw. It made me wonder which of the Black men I encounter in my daily life stand out for me and why. When I come up with some answers, I’ll post them. For now, though, I decided to use a photograph of a crowd as the background for this drawing, to sorta kinda capture the idea of standing out in a crowd. The background is from a photo I took at the USA Rugby Sevens in 2010.
