9.15am, Friday 30th June 2017, Brixton to Oxford Circus stations, Victoria line, London, England.
We’ve all done it: sleep, eat, use our phones and, ummm … wear bird print (I definitely have).  With teaching, work and travel, it’s been another busy time in my life, so squeezing in any drawing has been mostly a commute-only activity. The fragments of opportunity to draw have included: standing […]

Cutting nails, 16th May 2017, Victoria line
Is it ok to be cutting nails on the Tube? On a busy morning commute, I was rather appalled when a woman sat next to me began to clip her fingernails. At first, I thought she might be trimming one quickly, but I think she ended up cutting them all  – […]

Another morning commute… Another exciting day heading to work in central London, surrounded by fellow commuters reading, playing on their phones or eagerly waiting to reach their destination.
