iPad commuter on Metro bus 17

8:26 a.m.

This morning I sketched a new type of bus commuter that could be added to the transit commuters types list started by the Seattle Transit Blog a while back, when they picked up some of my bus sketches from my old, pre-Seattle Times blog.
Meet iPad commuter Wai Wong, who was on Metro bus number 17 this morning on his way to Fremont. This was a five minute sketch so I didn’t get to talk to Wong very much. I asked if he minded the glare on the iPad screen and he said it was not a problem. “I sit on the side of the bus where there is shade,” he said. I wonder if he’ll get to read this blog post on his iPad at some point. If I had one, we could have had a sketching party using Brushes.
Who said commuting can’t be fun?
