Some Hats and a Purple Shirt (Wednesday, 6-24-09)

On the 3 train.

Dopey Looks and Angry Hair (Tuesday, 6-23-09)

Sustained that dopey look all the way into Manhattan.

The all around look reminded me of the dystopian hoods from many 80s movies/comic books, like the watchmen or the guys who invaded Wyatt's house at the end of Weird Science. A slightly culturally removed vision of an apocalyptic future. I think the lip pierce with bare ears was interesting in its minimalism.

Monday Evening (6-22-09)

1 train, nice brown jacket.

Much yellow and tight stretch pants at Chambers street.

2 Train.

R Atlantic Pacific-Union St.

A Familar Duo on the 2 (Monday, 6-22-09)

Looked familiar (not caus he looked liked Robert Kardashian) and then saw young woman sitting next to him and I remembered.

The young girl next to him from April switched with me to the one while pops stayed on the 2.

Earrings and Talmud on the 2 (Friday, 6-19-09)

Extraordinary earrings in the middle. Reading some Talmud on the right. At least I think it was Talmud, kinda big for a siddur.

Lady in black on the M, Atalantic Pacific to Union street.

A Chasidic and his PDA (Thursday, 6-18-09)

A Chasidic man and his PDA on the F train.

Guy most likely on his way to civil court with fake neck donut to press his whiplash case.

Pregnant Woman Eventualy Gets Seat (Tuesday, 6-16-09)

In fairness to the other passengers she was wearing a big sweater and baggy clothes that somewhat masked her bun-in-oveness.

Woman on the 1, sitting, no bun.

And Later that Day (Monday, 6-15-09)

People were musical chairing it on the 2 at first, so thing were a little loose.

Then settled down once we were firmly Brooklyn bound.

His demeanour seemed to be in contradiction to his giant, big bird-yellow shirt. Or maybe that was just his subway face. Most people got one.

Friday Seems Like Forever Ago (Monday 6-15-09)

I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

Long bangs mostly hid her large brown eyes, which appeared for an instant here and there. 2 train.

Great expressive eyebrowing on the 1.

Interesting Choice of Shirt (Friday, 6-12-09)

On the 2. Guy on the left seemed like a real know-it-all as he was dropping science to his girlfriend to the right.

This shirt reminded me of one sported by Ms. Tessmacher, Lex Luthor's (Gene Hackman) girlfriend of the early superman movies.

Mom with here kids (other one out of frame) on the 1.

Pink Shirts and Jet Black Hair (Thursday, 6-11-09)

On the 1. She was serious.
And on the R. He was gabby.

Bad Angles and Gauntness (Wednesday, 6-10-09)

With his guant appearance, handlebar mustache, dark squint, black suit and slicked back hair he was half Wyatt Earp, half character from a Tarantino film. There was something up with him as he became increasingly hunched as the ride went on, seemingly in a state of semi-conciousness. At Hoyt he seemed to awaken and dragged himself off the train.

Sorry baby, bad angle, everyone's got one. The pink accessories were cute though....

1 train, nervous, hard chisled, kinda gaunt face. I know I've used gaunt twice in this post, and don't remember ever using it before in this forum.

Black Perched Hat (Tuesday, 6-9-09)

Hasidic man reading on the 2 train. His black hat was perched over a red bag and it looked almost like he had a little sidekick, like an ultra-orthodox Cousin It.

Tuesday 6-9-09

Woman with hair which i drew blondish but was somewhere in a difficult spectrum of palish yellow to grey to brown. All the tones of Grand Army platform

Damn that spine, totally made me f#*k up the sideburns.

Tintin hairdo with yamulkah.

Woman with diesel arms and elaborate head scarf setup as rain protection, musta just got back from the hair salon, as she seemed unconcerned about getting wet anywhere else.

Monday Morning (6-8-09)

On the 2.

1 train.

Slippery When Wet (Friday, 6-5-09)

Raining again. When wet the southern entrance to the downtown side of the Houston street station becomes hazardous. Pools of water accumulating at the bottom of the stairs over the tile in the unmanned station turns it into a giant slip and slide. Carrying a small package i lost my footing and hit the floor.

1 train.

Trying to capture the complex mix of tones and colors of this mass of red hair on the 3. There was something more golden about it that I didn't get.

Quickie on the R.

Blue Train (6-5-09)

Tough week, more trips to Jersey than one would like. Its raining.
On the 2.

Liked the way his arms were folding and teh stripes, so I started drawing him. He noticed my drawing and looked like he was calculating a reaction for a hile, but eventually none came.

Older lady with a pleasantness about her despite the black mass of amorphous coat and accessories.
