I went back to visit NYC last weekend and was somewhat shocked to realize how truly smooth the subway ride is. Here at home in Pittsburgh, the weather has dropped below freezing and I have begun getting around full time via bus. It is a bumpy, curvy ride not conducive to sketching but I have taken up bus photography so I can sketch people at home while looking at their photos on my computer. Here is the first of these sketches, a self portrait on an empty bus. 10"x12" pencil on cardboard from an ikea curtain.
