Commuter types

bustypes012709m

I think these two Seattle commuters are representative of two types of commuters everywhere: the guy who can't keep his eyes away from the cellphone and the sleep-deprived worker whose head bounces back and forth every other while (I fit that profile most of the days lately.)

I sat across the first one on Monday and across the second one on Tuesday. Both days the bus was packed and I wasn't planning to sketch, but I somehow managed to get these done —color added later. More sketches of commuters on my 'riding the bus' Flickr set.

Not living in a big city any more, i sometimes miss commuting. I used to read a lot more when i had a bus or tube journey. Now i'm at work in five minutes.
