Another Drawing On Another Train

2 Jan

Ink drawing on a tube train.


I love trains and I love drawing on them. People are usually very respectful and watch over your shoulder but don’t disturb you. It’s something to occupy yourself on the London tube because nobody ever talks to anyone else, unless they’re foreign – that is, from outside London. I don’t know why the London tube is like that; in my experience Londoners are not unfriendly. It isn’t too shaky either and that little bit of shakiness gives the line a nice little wobble.  Here’s a drawing in Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens into an A6 spiral bound Cotman sketchbook.

    Love your posts Rosie and of course your artwork. Most people are nice (and friendly) I like to believe. However, my daughter got on a train between xmas and new year and just as she was sitting down she smiled at the woman opposite her. To her surprise this woman glared back at her in a most aggresive manner muttering under her breath, “what the f……. are you looking at” said woman then continued to stare at my daugher in a most aggresive manner. You are right when you say that most Londoners (and people in general) are friendly……unfortunately it’s the few odd balls that spoil it for the others!

      oh how horrible. It’s awful when that happens and you can’t get away when you’re on the tube. Maybe that’s why everyone just looks at the floor and says nothing. Although I find that people look over my shoulder when I’m drawing and actually speak to me!
