1001 Black Men–#340

I love drawing textures, and I’ve realized that I don’t do enough of them. Glad I could make #340 an homage to the coolness of texture and line.

I was recently up in Garberville, California. There are not a lot of Black folks up there, but I was pleasantly surprised to see at least one other besides me and my partner. This guy was chatting with friends on the sidewalk in front of the grocery store. He was wearing an old-school sports jersey, the type of which many people used to wear in high school in the ’70s and ’80s. Even in Northern California, far from Oakland, we still acknowledged each other with “the nod,” and then we each went on about our business.
