"It is a time of tons of verbiage, activity, and consumption.... But I do know that many who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where they can root and grow. We must all hope that they find them."
Mark Rothko, 1969

Man on - you guessed it - the Metro
It isn't my intention to fill this book with sketches from the Metro, but it sure seems to be turning out that way, because that's when I have time to draw. Its also fun because you never know when a passenger is going to get up and leave or another one will enter and sit in front of the person you were drawing, so you have to draw fast. When I started drawing this morning, the only other passenger was a young woman who was looking down doing something. I started to draw her, but this guy came in, sat down, and opened up a newspaper, messing up my view of her. She got off at the next station, so I ended up drawing him.
