Giant bear, Victoria line, London, 3rd December 2013


Yes, carrying a giant teddy bear is normal, and no, I’m not looking.

Of course, I shouldn’t react to someone carrying a large soft toy, but something like that does attract attention. I did my best to be British and sober about it; I ignored it and looked away. This drawing took so long to draw that the scene is an amalgam of people I saw from several journeys on the Victoria line. It has been a busy month and I only found time to complete this during the Christmas holidays.
