Ginsberg's Bum

Very quick sketch of a lady in the Parliament Hill cafe...I blinked and she was gone. Above her is an image based on a haiku by Allen Ginsberg composed in his back yard in Berkeley in 1955:
Looking over my shoulder
my behind was covered
with cherry blossoms.

The other image is a giant Ginsbergian nose propped up by a stick: it seemed to make sense at the time.
Tiny flimsy Moleskine pocket notebook, previously soaked in seawater during a beach mishap. 9cm x 14cm.
