portrait of a sketchbag

age: 50-ish
real name: unknown
code name: Captain Campfire

appeared at my cash register three times in one hour the other day. he had long, dirty, grey hair and a long, dirty, grey beard. he smelled as if he woke up not next to, but IN a campfire. his face and hands were specked with dark soot. half of his moustache was burned down to stubble. he had many large holes in his beard that also appeared to be caused by fire. each one of his fingertips was burned down to a pitch-black crust; he had much trouble holding his change. he wasn't unfriendly, but he did not speak. he purchased two kinds of potato chips, a litre of coffee cream and three pounds of butter.
