Tokyo Train sketches


I’m back in Tokyo throughout this month, and, as is my habit, have been drawing people on trains again.



As I’m staying in a central part of the city this time there are not so many long commuter train journeys, so sketching has been sporadic, on short journeys with bustling trains, when people move, get on and off more frequently, and (in many cases) block my view of my drawing model. So I’m getting a lot of false starts like this!


You’ve just got to get on with it…. and be quick!!


 However, when the opportunity arrives, some sitters are remarkably good models, especially when they’re half asleep…
