118 -120 Let sleeping sketches lie.

You are feeling sleeepppyyy.....veeeryyyyy sleeeppppyyyy !!!!!

People asleep in public places are weirdly vulnerable creatures. Showing a side only their closest family usually see. And remarkably absent from our world. It always intrigues me that they are off in their minds, seeing and feeling stuff you could never fathom in a million years. And if they are anything like my dreams that's a mighty odd place.
And that slight removed feeling you get when you have fallen asleep on a train, or in the park, and you wake and look at the people around you with a mixture of sheepishness and accomplishment. ( and a drooly damp patch on your shirt )

This last one is a guy who was fast asleep on the train, and I went for it with the shading, and it is a hideous drawing in many respects, but I kinda like it...
The line is so dark it feels to me like it should snore, even if the real guy didn't.

Sorry just got to...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Incidentally, and apropos of absolutely nothing other than writing the phrase just reminded me of it... only Google the words 'damp patch' if you have a cast iron constitution.
