More Subway Drawings
Another time I was coming home late from work, having done overtime. I sat in a fairly crowded car. At some point four to five young men walked in from one of the other cars, they wore hoods and their lower face's were covered with handkerchiefs. They stood at the front middle and end of the car blocking the doors. Everyone in that car understood that something was about to happen, but before anything could the train pulled in to the next station, the doors open up and everyone exited the car. The train pulled away with only those four or five masked young men in the car.
Those are some of the lighter stories I have. I have seen arguments, fist fights, and people crying openly.
When I sketch the people on these trains I hope that the drawing doesn't just look like a man reading a newspaper or listening to his Ipod, or a woman reading a book. I hope that some individual character comes out to give a sense of life beyond the drawing.
