I sometimes go to a local coffee shop to work. Here are some sketchbook drawings of the patrons that I scanned.

Burly suspenders man:

Old dude who always wears a leather jacket:

A Chinese lady walking her pomeranian:

I often see people completely engrossed in texting:

I saw this kid run by one day. He was clutching a huge bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

Girl with cowboy boots:

The Red Cougar:

I saw this lady today and had to grab my sketchbook and draw her. She had to be in her late forties/early fifties, but that didn't stop her from dressing like this. Every time she walked around the room she sashayed her hips and she posed seductively even while waiting in line for the bathroom.

Suspenders do add to one's manliness, that cougar was trying to seduce you I'm sure.

Hey Megan, these are funny sketches. You have quite a sense of humor. I like the texting sketch.

I actually did a texting gag myself. It's called Encounter Group, close to the bottom of my blog page:
