Oh, to be young...

My boyfriend, Greyson, and I live across the street from a very large public high school, and Monday-Friday when 3 pm comes, all hell breaks loose. It's like some absurd blend of a UFC fight,  reality television, and fashion week right outside our windows! (How could you not want to draw that?)  There are generally police stationed near each exit, because as you might have guessed, a week without a fight is an anomaly. The officers assigned to patrol these unruly teenagers never seem particularly pleased about it, and we're often amused to catch them texting or making calls while completely ignoring the chaos around them. I took to drawing some of them in my sketchbook, and a few other neighborhood characters made a cameo.
