So very tired. So VERY tired.

Cool sounds

World’s biggest sunnies. People often wear them on the train while they sleep. Reminds me of Homer Simpson’s ‘awake’ glasses, although I don’t know why.

Sound Asleep

She cottoned on after a while but mostly, this lady was so dead tired, she just didn’t care. People can sleep in the most uncomfortable positions. The distortion in her facial features isn’t entirely due to my limited abilities.

Reading and sleeping

I’m a little disappointed with this one. The woman on the left is disproportionate. The lady on the right was doing her best to remain upright and focussed but drifted off and just kept sliding downwards in the seat as I drew her. Even sleeping people move when you don’t expect them to. Everyone’s sleeping on the train these days. Must have something to do with the darker mornings.

Attempting Sleep

trying-to-sleepAnother sleeping office-worker. At least, he was trying to catch some shut eye but was jolted into wakefulness every at every stop and start of the train. I’m amazed that the poor man didn’t have whiplash by the time we got to the end of the line. Must be very flexible.

Dozing Off On A Warm Train

sleeperDespite the annotation on the drawing, this was drawn on the Northern Line. Old carriage, no air-conditioning, warm day. Conditions perfect for an after-work snooze. Sleeping people make good models.
