Friday morning, Victoria line 21st August 2015
It was an early start to my working day. Another drawing completed, mostly created during a month’s worth of commuting. On my way to work, very early in the morning, my attention was focused on a couple; one of them was holding a credit card, the details of which his […]

Sleeping commuters, Victoria line, 18th June 2015
The challenge is to wake up at the right stop. A month and a half of commuting to find enough time to create this drawing. Life is getting busy, but it’s going well, apart from where I fall sleep and find myself in the opposite side of the city to […]

Two fingers, 7.30pm Thursday evening, Oxford Circus to Victoria, Victoria line, London, 28th May 2015
Swearing on the Tube isn’t that common… I wondered, during a short Tube journey from work to a friend’s house, was this woman was sticking two fingers at me? She seemed engrossed in playing Candy Crush, so she probably didn’t even notice I was there. In this picture I’m trying to be […]

Meditating, 9.40am, Thursday morning, Victoria line, 26th March 2015
The Tube can be a relaxing place for some… On my way to work, this guy seemed so calm, I think he was meditating from Brixton to Oxford Circus and beyond. Medium: Digital drawing on iPhone 6 and Adobe Ideas app Date drawn: 20th March – 5th April 2015

Clothes rail, 4.30pm, Sunday afternoon, Brixton to Stockwell, Victoria line, 15th March 2015
I’m not the only one who’s having problems finding enough storage space… Whilst on my way to the centre of London, I shared my carriage for one stop with a guy who had some dry cleaning. I’ve never seen the handrails being used like this, but it seems logical when […]

Two guys, 11pm Saturday, Oxford Circus to Brixton, Victoria line, London, 28th February 2015
Always get a good night’s sleep. Returning home from the cinema, I saw this couple. One of them was very tired, but I got the indication they were just starting their night out. At Vauxhall, one woke the other from his sleep and they both got off. Medium: Digital drawing on […]

Family, 1.30pm, Thursday 22nd January 2015, Brixton to Green Park station, Victoria line, London
My family and other commuters… My family came to London to see me and to visit the Royal Academy, where a tiny version of a photograph I took was being exhibited. For the first time there was a need for the subjects I portrayed to be a little more lifelike. Medium: Digital drawing on […]

Tuesday morning, Brixton to Oxford Circus, Victoria line, 10th - 26th February 2015, London
Talk, read, drink coffee, listen to music – not a cool cafe, just another Tube journey. Another morning rush-hour commute. Occasionally people talk. Medium: Digital drawing on iPhone 6+ and Adobe Ideas app Date drawn: 10th – 26th January 2015

Signage, Brixton tube station
It’s good to be back in Brixton… I woke up in my new flat in Brixton, I realised that yesterday wasn’t a dream and it really did happen: I moved away from my old place. It’s a relief to have reached my fourth rented flat of 2014. Medium: Digital drawing on iPhone […]

Home in…Brixton, 4th December 2014

Monday morning, Brixton to Oxford Circus, Victoria line, 9th June 2014
People watch and read different things on the Tube, probably just to avoid making eye contact. Another crowded Monday morning Tube journey, but I have the priviledge of nearly always getting a seat. The bag with writing, Batman t-shirt, suited man and the back of the woman were the main […]

Saturday night, from Victoria to Brixton, Victoria line, 14th June 2014
If there really was a housing a crisis in London, we’d find people sleeping on the Tube… When it’s close to midnight, every Londoner has to make a decision on whether to get one of the last trains home or stay out and try one of the much slower night […]

Tiger, Sunday afternoon, Brixton, Victoria line, 25th May 2014
When I leave Brixton, I’ll miss everyone on the Victoria line. Even the ones in fancy dress. Warm weather brought out a party atmosphere and a group of people dressed as characters from Winnie the Pooh. On my journey with me was what I guess to be loud and drunk […]

Tired woman, 12.30pm Sunday, Brixton to Oxford Circus, Victoria line, 1st June 2014
I know what you feel like… Not an interpretation of Edvard Munch’s The Scream, but rather my view whilst on the Tube to Maida Vale on my way to view a new flat. The woman got on at Brixton with me, and before she got off at Victoria, she changed […]

Sunday evening, Victoria line, 18th May 2014
Go easy on that highlighter… I was heading home after a fantastic weekend with friends up in the North exploring Macclesfield and Chester. It was odd to be able to see my own reflection instead of the backside or crotch of someone standing up in the aisle. During this week […]

Monday evening, Victoria line, London, 21st April 2014
I was working late again, I wonder how many of my fellow commuters are also doing unpaid overtime? Tired from working late, somehow I still had enough energy to sketch a half-empty carriage. I was sat on the far end of the last carriage, though I was sat down on […]

Carrying an A1 model, 10am Saturday morning, Victoria line, London, 19th April 2014
It was my turn to do something odd on the Tube. Carrying an A1-size model is best done during the quiet hours… Because of my annual house move, I need to find new places for my possessions – mostly charity shops! A few precious items with no practical value, but immense […]
