Riding the 1 Train (Sunday, 12-2-12)

Greazy, sleepy rock n roll dude, rubbing shoulders with cleanly cropped Euro tourist. He was seemingly in deep snooze but popped up swiftly as soon as we hit 34th st like there was some invisible force that beckoned him.

Riding the MARTA from the Airport to Midtown Atlanta (Wednesday, 5-30-12)

Cozy little couple having loads of fun with her iPhone.
A curious crowd in the ATL - folks in NYC pay no mind to the subway sketcher on the usual - but these folks were interested. Teenager was asking me how I picked my subjects - the ones who aren't likely to move too soon said I. Other guy though I got bored and was just sketching in a book I was reading. Quite surprised that someone would rock a sketchbook on the regular.
