An oldie but a goodie...

Thursday, December 07, 2006

Okay, this lady was moving her head a lot too. I need to find some reading and sleeping people... maybe everyone is all agitated before the holidays. Hmm.

So this guy was moving a lot... but at least I got kind of a sketchy sketch down. Voila.

I'm such a slacker. A million apologies.
Here's one from earlier in the week...

Apologies again for the posting delay - a whole week! Yikes. We were in the middle of moving, you know how that goes.
So, here's another Sharpie sketch, and then a vintage sketch, from 2001.

Oof. I've been laid low by the flu of late, but I think I'm back.
With apologies for my absence, and a definite absence from BART (don't want to spread my germs across the Bay), here are some more Sharpie sketches from 2 weeks ago, two portraits of the back of people's heads:

These are a couple I did back on 10/21.
Profiles are sometimes easier, because there's less chance of the subject seeing you drawing them...

I started doing some with a Sharpie instead of a retractable pencil; here's one, of a woman chatting on a cell phone (done, I believe, before we entered the tunnel part of BART underneath the Bay):

Here's another from a couple of days ago:

Ok. So it will prove more difficult than originally imagined to update this thing daily. But I will try!! At least for the next couple of days or so...
Here are some sketches from the last couple of days.

A couple of years ago, when I used to live in San Francisco and commute to work in Oakland, I would alleviate commuter boredom by sketching my fellow train passengers on the 15-minute ride between downtown San Francisco and downtown Oakland and back.

Now that I work and live in Oakland, and commute less than 5 days a week to my art studio in San Francisco, I have lost the regular habit of sketching my train neighbors, preferring instead to zone out to the mild rocking motion and the not-so-mild noises of the BART train.

However, I recently re-discovered the joys of stealthfully using other BART riders as my portrait sketch models. Behold! And now, I vow to post a new sketch on this blog every day, or at least as often as possible... we'll see how this goes. Since I'm currently a bit short on material, I will dig the depths of my stash from my last bout of BART sketching until I'm up to speed on my drawing, and on my commuting.

Stay tuned... if you're a regular BART commuter, maybe you'll recognize yourself...
