"Punch Me in The Face"!

On my walk to work one day, I saw these two guys busking their way across Canada.  Of course had to stop to talk to them as they were playing banjos, an instrument close to my heart! I saw them again last week, and one of the two was sporting a nasty shiner.  I thought the sign he was holding was hilarious so I had to get the low down.  Seems he was sucker punched in a local Ottawa park the night before.  A little worse for wear but his banjo and sense of humour were intact!

This is one of those quirky life interactions that most of us would not even consider, and likely ignore or avoid. I decided to do a quick mini-sketch to capture the moment.  Street life is infinitely interesting and sometimes quite amusing.  You just have to open your eyes to see it.
