Sketches on the train, tube and bus in London (March I)

Here I will be showing some of the sketches in one of my sketchbooks. I sketch almost everyday on public transport. This has been my practice for many years now and I just keep this habit going as it is the way I see the world!

Hope you enjoy these sketches and I hope you can feel the way I felt for each face. I just love faces!!!

Nothing is so enjoyable, so interesting and so engaging as when I sit down to thoroughly sketch the faces I see on public transport!

SPECIAL QUOTE- "Many people have asked me what do I do when someone sees that I am sketching them, I say to them, I simply wink, once I wink, it keeps them calm, I have tried it and it works!"-Adebanji Alade

I love these! I've been trying my own sketches of people on the train to work (San Francisco). What kind of sketchbook do you use?
