French youths smoking cigarettes (well, I suppose that’s what they were).
I suppose it is spelt like that ? It might be les cloppes. It is French slang for cigarettes. Fags, I suppose. I did this little sketch in the car while we were at traffic lights. A group of unwashed-looking youths sat on the steps of a war memorial, smoking for all life was worth. They were so serious about it. Talking and puffing and gesticulating. So serious.
