Observing people and sketching them on public transport is now even more easier than it has ever been.
Ask me why? Now, everyone seems to be absorbed into their smart phones and tablets. So, if you are sketching they probably think you are on one of those tablets too! (good reason to start sketching on Public Transport)
|Lady sketched From Finchley Rd & Frognal to Stratford.|
This particular lady was sketched today on the trains on the London Overground line. She was completely absorbed for 25 minutes on the train. Her daughter who was around 4 or 5 years old, tried ever so much during this journey to make every attempt to connect with her mum or get her attention in but it was all to no avail.
Maybe once or twice her daughter got too close, she'd then receive a harsh look or near silent words which I couldn't quite make out but I can only figure they were said to open up a wider gap of not communicating with her daughter.
What is happening in our society? Are we all becoming zombies and slaves to the advancing technology? Is there a way out? Are we coming to the end of all true mutual face to face connections......
Hmmmm the life of sketching has brought me speaking to many, who would have never spoken or even given me a second look. I hope to put all these thoughts and observations on my experiences on public transport into a book one day.
