He had set up his own drawing ‘booth’ in the restaurant to showcase his art and to draw people. His drawings were mostly caricatures but I saw his portfolio and notice that he also does sculptures.
One thing I thought was great about Thomas was his ability to speak four different languages. While I could tell that he did not enjoy speaking English, we were able to have a pretty long conversation. I had to repeat myself to him a few times but his English was understandable. He could easily speak his native tongue (Italian), French and Spanish which I thought was amazing!
We spoke about art.
Noticing that I was a photographer, he asked me if I could help him put a website together by taking pictures of his work. To which I replied I would love to help him… but later had to decline when I realized that I would not have anytime to help him. Besides, he did not have a studio or a legit meeting place where we could meet.
However, his art is the bomb! He drew me in under ten minuets and it’s an art piece that I am going to frame!
In this photo he is drawing the couple sited in the front of him.
To contact him, you can shoot him an email at Thomas.firstname.lastname@example.org
