I did a quick scribble of Teenage Niece this evening. It had to be a quick scribble because she can’t sit still for long. It’s an interesting phase of development. Her face isn’t the scrunched up alien physique of a child but she still has a child-like roundness to her features. I used Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens, sizes S and M into my A5 Tate Gallery sketchbook.

Faces On The Bakerloo

Ink drawing: kidfaceman.

Here are some more sketches done on tube trains, ideal for people-watching. This young man above was chatting to his friend and didn’t notice me – one of the few people talking on the London Tube! What struck me was his childlike face. His features were scrunched up into a much smaller area, unlike an average adult head. He was very animated and it’s a challenge to draw someone who’s smiling, laughing and talking so much. Reasonable likeness though.

The stylish man below was engrossed in his paper. He wore a large and expensive looking watch and a typical looking old-school tie. Drawing on the Tube is difficult because it’s so shaky and the line wobbles all over the place, but I like the effect.

Ink drawing: The Watchman.

They’re drawn in Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen size ‘S’ into an ‘Artbox’ recycled leather-bound A6 sketchbook.
