Well, this is based on someone I sat beside on a plane recently. His name was Thor Harris, yeah, Thor. Awesome, right?
He was also an artist and it was pretty cool to sit and draw with someone on an airplane. We were in the last row of the plane, sketching and making small talk off and on. Nifty.
He has 10 cats. 10. Oh and feeds them the brand of food I work for. Wonderful.
He is a carpenter and was on his way to Colorado to work on a house he bought. Manly.
Finally, and the reason for this picture, he is a drummer for two bands, Shearwater and Swans. Rockin’. (Click the band names to go to their MySpace pages. I am partial to Shearwater, if you care. Which you don’t.)
What could have been a crumby plane ride turned out pretty good…although I still had to smell the bathroom behind me the whole trip. Blegh!
This is in my Sketchbook Project book.
Went a little nuts on the hot linking.
