Why we spotted him: Perhaps I have recently been drawn to green pants–first Taimur’s jungle green and now Jonathan’s olive. Green feels original in its unconventionality, and yet so fitting. But of course it wasn’t just the green pants. Armed with the blue suspenders, casually rolled sleeves, paper book in hand, and portfolio, Jonathan appeared as an artist en route to completing a masterpiece. Which is…partially true :). Jonathan was even kind enough to offer me a ticket to the Kalkwerk! Thank you again Jonathan for the ticket and for agreeing to stand in the middle of the dangerous street. And cheers, in general, to the generous and wonderfully dressed. Hoorah!
