Drifter Book Print by OneUrbanTribe Drifter Book Print by OneUrbanTribe
This piece is made from my original ink drawing printed on a page from a vintage, 1976 copy of 'On The Road,' the classic beatnik era novel by Jack Kerouac. The man pictured is a drifter that I used to see from time to time at a downtown cafe. Occasionally I would sketch him as he bummed cigarettes and loose change from the tourists, and finally worked this one into a finished drawing.

The original piece of art was rendered in India ink with a traditional dip pen in the strict value range of black and white. One of my favorite things to depict in my art are passing, everyday moments. I believe most of us overlook the beauty in everyday things, and I have made it my mission as an artist to point out the ordinary and the overlooked.
