Sketches on the tube, train and bus in February X (MY BIRTHDAY TODAY)



More sketches a busy day yesterday! I went on the tube, train and bus. At the beginning of the year when I thought I wouldn't be able to use the trains again because of the high rise in prices, I despaired because it is harder sketching on buses- shorter journeys, more movement and the sitting arrangement isn't that encouraging too. But I just went on to sketch on the buses anyway. If I saw a back view -I'll sketch it, a side view- I'll sketch it! I sketched anything that came my way and I never knew that it would make sketching in the train much easier. I noticed this yesterday when sketching on the trains and tube- it wasn't as hard as it used to be!





By the way, today is my birthday! Thanks to all you encouraging folks out there who take time to view these pages and read this blog! The old man is 37 today and If not because of the neck aches and back aches I still feel young as ever!

I can't believe you are able to sketch on a moving bus! Now that takes a bit of talent.

Happy Birthday, Adebanji!! Hope you celebrate in a special way. P.S. Your remark about 37 being old, is making me feel ancient. You are NOT old!!:)

Happy Birthday Adebanji! Regarding your previous post, if the President and VP of RWS encouraged you to join RWS, it's the best possible sign that you will be accepted.

Happy Birthday Adebanji! I'm sort of late, it's march 1st now. You make me feel old, my youngest son is a year older than you.

I always enjoy seeing your latest sketches. How wonderful that you use your time on public transportation sketching and growing as an artist.

Hey, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Adebanji!!! You're still young man...I'm 43 and I still feel young as ever too!
Wonderful sketches as always!

Hey, I really like the intimate feel of your latest sketches. I don't know if it's because of the darker pencil or the close proximity of the people on the bus.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!!!
