Mountains of hair

At a Starbucks I found this fellow sitting across from me staring intensely at his laptop. 

As I started drawing I was attracted to his concentration on his work but as I drew him my interest shifted to his hair. As I have said before drawing a persons hair can be a great opportunity to give form to a drawing, dimension and character. Too often I see drawings where the hair is just a dark blob or merely outlined.

In this case I followed his hair from the back of his head, along the side, finally ending in a wonderful wave across the front. It was like a landscape on top of his head.
