When looking through photos I took in 2014 in NYC I saw this man and thought he had such a positively American look, especially in the bright sunny weather of a NYC summer and noting that during my week there I found the people in that city so friendly, positive and communicative. So I drew this picture. I actually tried to find him using social media, thinking that I could give him this drawing (a kind of social art thing, event, or whatever) but drew a blank. Glad I drew the picture anyway.
