4.30 AM (Apparently They Were Travelling Abroad) (Song by Roger Waters; art by Alex Hinders)

I’m a huge Roger Waters fan, and I’ve been doing a series of drawings inspired by his classic album “The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking.” All rights to the song itself belong to Roger Waters and his label/lawyers. (Here’s hoping they recognize this as project of love and leave it be!)

Song lyrics, for reference:
4.30 AM (Apparently They Were Travelling Abroad)

(“…Apparently they were travelling abroad…”)
(“…And they picked up some hitchhikers…drill…”)
(“…Wake up you’re dreaming…what…you’re dreaming…”)

(…”We were moving away from the border…”)
(“…Uh what border?”)
(“…Have a nice day…uh…have a nice day…”)

We were moving away from the border
Looking for somewhere to sleep
The two of us sharing the driving
Two hitchhikers slumped in the back seat
(“Hello.”)
I sneaked a quick look in the mirror
She gave me a smile
I said “Is anyone hungry?
Should we stop for a while?”
So we pulled off into a lay-by
Her dress blew up over her head
I said “Would you like to come with me?”
She said something foreign under her breath

And the sun shone down on her lovely young limbs
I thought to myself she’s much too good for him
I lay down beside her with tears in my eyes
She said —

I chatted with Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway about the pitfalls of using your smartphone abroad and on holiday. I gave some handy tips to avoid unexpected costs.
