Subway Life

António Jorge Gonçalves, travels around the world drawing sketches of people on Subways. The site is really interesting.
Tokyo, Lisbon, Stockholm, New York, London, Moscow, São Paulo, Athens and Cairo are the cities where he has already sketched in the Subway. He is mostly a comic strip artist and illustrator.

"When people are shut in a subway carriage they look for something to do during their journey. They read the paper, listen to music or brood on something unpleasant said to them at work. I prefer to draw the other people." António Jorge Gonçalves

Thanks for the link - his stuff is amazing. I love how the figures are isolated from their environment. I think I want to be him when I grow up...

Drawing in public is a very difficult thing to do.
People write in public, no one bothers them.
People read in public, no one bothers them.
Someone draws in public, he/she will attract onlookers.

Art draws people!
