I got inspired to draw “Dick” looking at an old guy on the bus on my way to work. He was sat at the front sit of a double decker English bus and I was sat 2 or 3 seats behind. I could only see the back of his head and a bit of the side. For some reason his tired skin and thin silhouette, instantly reminded me of an old sailor. When finished the sketch, this whole sea story in my head, woke up memories of me reading Moby Dick, and this is how I made the connection and ended up naming the portrait “Dick”.
