15分パトカースケッチ



[By Kumi Matsukawa in Tokyo, Japan]

This is my contribution to tribute Flaf.

This is not a fancy vintage car but I wanted to draw it for a long time but I have been hesitant up until yesterday...

A fifteen minutes sketch done on my way to a company in Yoyogiuehara, Tokyo. This Police patrol car was parking alongside the police box near the station. A police officer came out from the police box and asked me if I was ok since I kept crouching down in front of the car. I said to her that I was fine and I just have been sketching the car. I also said that since my legs becoming numb,I shall leave soon , then I showed my sketch to her. Seemed that she was convinced. I might have looked a bit suspicious person?

  2. Kumi, Thank you for the story! It reminded me when I started to draw in the village, but it was private land. The owner got scared of a foreigner and said, that he will call to police. My mistake... (-_-) Then I realised, other people can see me in suspicious way, even If I think I'm just a sketcher, who make peace and harmony 笑
