Description: School crossing guard scene
Comment: When I was a kid, we didn’t have crossing guards, but we did have bus cops... typically the brown-nosers of the school, recruited to maintain order. They were pretty universally considered dweebs, yet there was always a segment of the school population that adored anyone in uniform... and the rest of us who were non-plussed. Note the slightly rakishly opened collar, the stance and of course the footwear of the rebellious lot. Truly an artistic tour-de-force, this painting conveys a lot through dress and facial expression.
