Skid Row Portrait #3: James G. Gutter Jr.
James has been without a home for 30 years and is originally from Louisiana. It seemed he was the boss around that part of town as everyone was constantly asking him for questions and advice. Before i began drawing he said, “Oh, wait, let me get my real hat on.”After drawing James’ portrait, we set up his tent together as it began to lightly rain there on 5th Street.
He told me his last name really was Gutter.
