Judith (update)


My wife and I just went to Alaska on a vacation and this is basically the only sketch I did during the whole week. It was some lady that unknowingly followed us around the airport. She was a bit of a nut. She looks like a Judith.

Update: I just found a photo we secretly snaped of her. She the lady that left her bag unattended at the check-in, and when we asked if it was hers, she said "no". Then, after the security guys show up, she says it IS hers. And later, she is the one who walked right past the huge line that everybody has to wait in at the security check point, and goes right up to the front. What the..!? Then, from clear across the terminal, she walk to within a few feet of me, looks at my face, and then just walks away. Nutty I tell ya. How could I not draw her?

I think this lady's followed me around places too. So far she hasn't tried to attack us or anything... so far. Great sketch, Guy!

Mom?

I love the drawing. Old lady's with baseball hats are great.

I agree with Nathan, I lke the baseball hat. That combined with the pearls and a good poker face... what a great old lady!

Your drawing looks more like her than the photo does. That's great you have a photo to back it up. Maybe she stopped to look at you because you were the guy who was taking pictures of her. Hilarious, Guy!

This is great Guy! Funny to hear the story behind the mysterious woman and the sketch. She's probably a covert agent for the IRS. Don't be surprised if one day you come home to find her riffling through your drawers.

Definitely a Judith, really great drawing! She apparently likes the color taupe. Maybe she's going on a jungle safari. Nice work.

Suprisingly, in the real photo, the colors are matching... I expected white pearls, a bright purple baseball cap, a bright blue jacket... and who knows what color shirt... maybe pink or something...

It looks just like her! Great job!

Hahahaha! Great job, Guy! Are you even sure this lady had an actual boarding pass?
