Daily character - Zhang Jiang box man






















I am going to start drawing the most interesting/funny/weird person I see everyday, and this is the first of many to come.

I encountered this man just after having lunch, he was about 4ft 5in tall and was just exiting the Zhang Jiang tube station. He had on a small moss green (dry moss) blazer which looked about as comfortable as wearing hessian. His tongue was indeed poking out in this manner as was a select few teeth. He was carrying an extremely heavy looking box (in a bag) far above the ground, almost above his head for no apparent reason. He had a look of gleeful ignorance/stupidity in his eyes but his shuffle suggested he had been carrying the box for more than 48 hrs.
