Portraits of commuters

With this sketch I’m hoping to start a series of occasional posts featuring fellow commuters I cross paths with as I use public transportation around Seattle.
On Tuesday, Jim Hanson, 65, was waiting for bus 17 at W. Nickerson Street and the Ballard Bridge on ramp. He didn’t mind the interaction.
I plan to ask everyone the same question, but I’ll change that if it gets too boring!
Why do you use public transportation? “Because I have to get from point A to point B, and it’s cheaper,” said Hanson, a retired fisherman.
