07 subway people

I started with the woman’s hands, because she was sleeping and wasn’t likely to move. But then I figured I needed to fill in some part of the train behind her, so then the pole, and then the guy behind the pole, who kept moving his goddamn newspaper.

Newspaper readers—feh. They’re always moving.

I scrawled in the feet of the guy behind him as the train was pulling in at my stop.

    Good perspective. It has to be tough drawing on that jerky subway. It has a great feel of an actual moment.

    Thanks, y’all!

    I find that the biggest challenge of drawing on the subway is picking a subject who won’t get off at the next stop. And I don’t have a long commute, myself, so either way, I have to draw fast.
