Tuesday morning, busy busy busy, catching up on work-related reading on the train. Bags under eyes, specs on head, bit chilly but very, very busy…

I continue to be amazed at the intensity with which people can concentrate. This lady’s elbow was practically resting on my sketchbook, yet she never once took her attention from her brochure – of stamp collecting paraphenalia. I had no idea there was so much equipment required for such a hobby. Next to golfers, stamp collectors must be the greatest consumers of accessories on the planet.

The older man in the background didn’t stir throughout the entire journey. I was tired myself and dozed off not long after sketching this. Wonder if someone drew me?

Some people squirm all the way into a corner in a crowded space. This lady might still be there for all I know. She was practically embedded into the joinery and was leaning so far away from the adjacent person, could have fallen over.

This old crane is bashed up, covered in graffiti (didn’t have the bottle to include it), rusted to bits and slowly disintegrating into the surrounding vegetation.

pink sitting

Found myself on the train with nothing but a highlighter to draw with. Takes me back to my days of high-top basketball boots, stonewashed denim and too-bright shirts. Might explain the recent purchase of a Human League album. Must be caught in time-slip.
