For the love of the commute

10in x 10in ball point pen on paper

I love my commute to work. Seriously.

It gives me two hours a day to draw from a host of unique characters. On the trains I am given countless free models who challenge me with their original costumes and restless movement.

Below is one of the more stoic characters I have encountered. This man sat still for almost fifteen minutes. This is unusual because most people cannot sit that still for that long unless they are asleep. But I prefer the people who are not sleeping because I never know when I will loose that pose.

Drawing fast everyday helps me capture the essential elements of my subjects. Plus, the unpredictability keeps my sort attention span occupied.
