Combining the gym with commuting. Multitasking, London style.

I went in earlier than usual to work that day. When I boarded the Tube carriage, I spotted a middle-aged man doing several pull-ups before the train left the station. Over the course of seven weeks, made up of at least 70 journeys and a few hours at home, I drew this piece. One of the details I spotted on later journeys, was a bag featuring a design of Hokusai’s The Great Wave, it’s hidden in my drawing – can you spot it?
