PCC Memories

 I've been working on this for about a month, off and on. It started with the foreground guy's eye and worked its way outwards, with no clear direction known.  I have no idea what it's supposed to be about beyond the obvious subject matter, but for some reason it has held my interest long enough to get this far. It's now at the point where I could tweak it indefinitely, but would be unlikely to improve it significantly and would probably introduce regressions. I'll let it marinate a while. I'm thinking of using it as the basis for my first larger etching.

pencil drawing of trolley interior with balding man on denim jacket and introspective expression in foreground. In the middle ground is a Black woman and her young daughter. who holds her mother's arm and looks on as the mother makes notes in a very large book on her lap. Behind them are a middle-aged white woman, a man mostly obscured behind his newspaper, a Black man with close cropped hair, a young white woman with long hair, and a whit student type man with a backpack standing in back.
