Metro Faces

metrofaces080105.jpg
Last week I spent a couple days travelling on the D.C. Metro and so to pass the time I drew a couple of the people that I saw. I love this kind of guerrilla sketching because you’re forced to make all kinds of decisions about the person’s face without appearing to stare and make it obvious that you’re drawing them.
Update – I’ve been thinking a lot about the figure on the right side of the page – the figure that’s half not there and I really am pleased with the merge of the abtract and real of this figure. I am so please that I may explore this further.

  1. I like this kind of sketching too, it’s fun but nerve wracking too, you have to work so quickly and accurately to get anything that doesn’t look like scribble which half of mine do. These are nice, way beyond scribble, you managed a lot of detail !
