Eating a burger, Victoria Line, 23rd September 2013


I experienced food envy on my way home.

Is there any etiquette to follow when eating on the Tube? One fellow passenger focused solely on his evening meal, without making eye contact with anyone or anything else. He had bitten his food to leave a perfect cross section of his burger; I could see the juicy beef patty and the gherkins. My envy only grew when he brought out some fries out of his oily takeaway bag. I began this journey at Oxford Circus, he was already onboard and stayed until Stockwell. I had other drawings to finish off, but this event caught my eye and I just wanted to draw something ‘of the moment’. There are a few problems with this drawing: the shoes are too small and the arm rests look a pit pointy.
