"HELLO. who ARE you. whats your story?" asks this piece of graffiti, spotted by my three-year-old daughter during a train trip from Broadstairs to Whitstable yesterday.
Most graffiti consists of slogans, or names, declaring something. But this anonymous drawing turns it around and asks the viewer questions. Call me daft, but I found that, and the slightly forlorn looking cartoon character, oddly moving.
I don't know if I want to think about what implements people are carrying with them that allows them to scratch drawings into train windows though.
