The big subway sketch post

I sketch all the time in public transportation, but lately… it’s just gone bonkers. I have 3 hours of commute every day and that has skyrocketed my production. Also, it means that I haven’t had much time to edit and take care of more elaborate drawings lately.

To avoid repeating myself  to death by doing only portraits, I chose to pick up on patterns, fashion and body language of the other fellow commuters.  Also, make sure to draw different body types, not just the ones I found attractive.

Another thing that started to interest me was the relations between them:

In this one, there’s one that isn’t from the subway, but I won’t tell you which one.

And yes, I did do some portraits and caricatures. There’s lots of weirdos in the TTC (not counting the one drawing them, of course):

Sketches

This week I’ve been sketching at a faster rate, it must be the weather telling me to move, or the amount of crazy people, or just the fact that it’s really hard to stay at home all day when the outside world looks this nice.

I know it won’t last, because it’s a Canadian Summer.

However, it’s thrilling, because I had a small sketchbook, which allowed me to be a bit least conspicuous than usual… to a certain extent. It’s hard to hide that you’re staring at someone. Even if you’re doing it for art.

So, look at all this people:

I did some plants as well:

Also took two small sketches and then cleaned them up a bit at home:

And just because, I added a little sketch I did for a potential commission that didn’t pan out, from photo reference:
