This woman was on the bus on the way home, definitely seemed like she knew what was going on. She was carrying a TON.

This one was done REALLY quickly as I realized that the subway was pulling into the final stop. Sometimes you neglect to hear these things when you have headphones on.

First off, thanks so much to the people who commented on the last post. I really appreciate it. Now, on to this week. I realize I missed a week in posting. Sorry. These drawings are all in the theme of passengers, all of them are pretty much from the subway, except for the first old lady. She's part of the cab driver story and ends up having the unfortunate luck to be in the cab on the wrong day. Most are done in pen and then colored in Photoshop, some were cleaned up and colored in openCanvas (which I just started using) .
C&C welcome and appreciated.

The Driver & the Guitar Player

Just a quick post as I'm forcing myself to post every week (at least) with the amount of stuff I've been doing...
The first is a character for a possible story idea I have about a cab driver, and I tried my hand at painting it - not sure how well it turned out...
The second, was a guy I saw one day after work as I was getting off the subway. He was holding a Tim Horton's cup, with his shirt wrapped around his waist, playing the air guitar to high hell...with no sign of music anywhere. Whatever music he was hearing, must have ROCKED!
The third is just a girl I saw on the subway, standing in various ways.

Cafe Sketches

"A mime is a terrible thing to waste"

Last week, Cliff, Emma, Matt and I all went to the zoo - it was a real refreshing day after months of solid work at school. Lots of fun. This past week, I've been enjoying the time off just cafe sketching and drawing up some characters - I've been experimenting with some coloring as well. Most of the drawings here are drawn in pen and colored in photoshop unless otherwise indicated.
Also, I'm going to Montreal this weekend to check out the "Etait une fois...Walt Disney" (Once upon a time...Walt Disney) exhibit at the musee de beaux arts, if anyone is going to be there, leave a comment, I think I'll either be going on the Friday or the Saturday.
