Commuters

Time goes faster during my bus commute if I try to do a quick sketch. And when there’s standing room only, like it happened a couple of times last week, I enjoy the challenge of keeping the lines somewhat straight.
I would like to start a series of portraits of commuters, talking to them and getting their opinion about public transportation in Seattle, but my sketching batteries have usually ran out of energy by the end of the day and in the morning I’ve been too sleepy to draw lately!
