Last Tube home, Northern line, 27th April 2014


It’s always a relief to get the last Tube home, whatever the state…

Closing time for pubs and the last trains don’t coincide. No joined-up thinking, but if it was to exist it would benefit us all immensely. So after I finished drinking on a Saturday night (probably to make myself forget the fact I paid to see Spiderman 2 at the cinema a few hours before) I had to rush to the Tube station. I did catch the last train as my drawing suggested, but by the time I wanted to change lines further down, the last train had departed. Again, no joined-up thinking.

I almost never finished this drawing. After my rough, half-drunken sketch, I started on other drawings. Somehow the scene of that one one man deep in alcohol-induced sleep made me go back to it.
