“I started wearing the suit and tie in 2013, before that I was invisible. People would walk past and be like, ‘A beggar, don’t look!'” Josh Henderson, who goes by Lakey, sits absorbed in his sketchbook¬†of vibrant abstractions in the midst of downtown Boulder, aside a sign which reads “Grandma says I need a job wearing a suit and tie…This is my compromise.” Lakey has been travelling across the United States as a street artist since he started drawing in 2009, logging an estimated¬†20,000 miles.
