The only odd thing that happens to me on occasion is getting hit-on by women who want me to draw them. It's crazy...you sit in a corner by yourself, mind your own business with a sketch book and the whole world suddenly will notice you.
Usually, I get a few beers out of it and some phone numbers. Easiest way to meet people. ; )
"If one advances confidently in the direction of
his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he
has imagined, he will meet with a success
unexpected in common hours."
- H.D. Thoreau
