Two scenes; two crabby old men

There is just the faintest whiff of Mervyn Peake about the heads of the two men, or so it seems to me. Hard to say what it is.

the second crabby man looks like an older version of the first, love the car its so appropriately red to form

I definitely see the Peake connection, though I don't think it was deliberate. Both were inspired by seeing a 'face' in a paint blob on a bathroom stall wall where graffiti had been covered over.

Oh, what a splendid inspiration -- the bathroom blobs! (I wonder whether the obliterated graffiti were expressions of wrath such as your men might utter. It's funny -- I didn't think that you had had Peake in mind when you drew those heads; in fact, I was quite convinced that you had not, so it is wonderful to learn the source of your inspiration.

And Alek is right about the car. It could only be red.
