TIMES SQUARE HOBO

I met Hobo Ron, as he likes to be called, in Times Square in NYC. He's an unusual sight wearing his crown of rusty safety pins, pants and camouflage cape that he designed. Day in and day out he sits on his crate, hoping someone will "discover" his creative style and unique ideas that he has printed on paper. Hobo Ron has a difficult time speaking with partial removal of his tongue and teeth due to cancer.
