Yep, this is just how I think Travis McGee looks. Fedora? Check. Trench coat? Check. Beard? Check. Cheap sunglasses? Check. Cheesy grin? Of course.

There’s just one thing. Is he shown being reflected in a glass-fronted antique medicine cabinet? If so, why is there a chain link fence in the background? Maybe we’re seeing him peeping through a decrepit door or window, which explains the fence but fails to account for his trench coat being on this side of the mullion.

No wonder the artist failed to sign his work.
