The drawings look more realistic when copied from photographs. My problem is, it’s boring to draw from photographs. I’m painting shapes rather than trying to think around an object.

Oh, I just remembered. Drew some sketches on the metro the other day. These to me are the best faces. I don’t know they have a kind of beautiful sadness you don’t see in photos. People in their own little worlds, trying to keep to themselves. Headed to who knows where.


Unfortunately, the cars are old, and sections of the track are bumpy. Funny to see everyone still reading, listening to players, but bumping up and down with those straight faces. Hard to draw, however. That’s what happened to the face on the bottom.
