4 recent drawings

As with the others, these are all from the Q train, the subway that I take from my Brooklyn neighborhood. A few short years ago it was the most diverse zip code in America, which I think is a great honor. I think it was Newsweek that made the revelation according to census figures. Here, we have old and young, orthodox jewish and caribbean. The list could go on and on, but it's late and I have to save something for later on. I hope you enjoy these.

From the Archives

For this update, I've dug into my archives and pulled a few from last year. Using another app, this time, too. But what remains the same are the straphangers, deep in thought, reading, or talking to friends.

Angry woman and hipsters

The title says it all. I did find it amusing that once I noticed the guy with large hipster glasses, I suddenly saw a bunch of other people suffering from the same malaise.

France, Russia, Wisconsin, India

From Thursday and Friday, four more faces. The first made me think of Daumier. The second was a Russian guy whose physique was brutish, but his personality was very happy and light as he talked to his friend. The next is a woman who was very round in a middle-America fashion. And finally there was a very intense guy who I'm guessing was from India.  All on my Q train.

It's been a while

It's been a while, and an update is long overdue. Here are a couple more recent subway portraits, drawn using the Zen Brush app and my thumb.
