The morning I got food envy…
The dad in this picture was asking his young daughter: “Are you still hungry, had enough?”. As she was eating, he explained the meaning of the colours of the lines o the Tube map, especially “the green and yellow ones”. This scene is not very crowded, it being from a quiet Saturday morning, a time I’d usually be asleep but I was on my way to teach in a workshop on digital drawing at the RIBA. I just had a breakfast of fruit and coffee, the girl’s breakfast muffin made me realise I wanted a much more substantial breakfast!
This drawing was created in the midst of a heatwave, hence all the shorts and legs on show. Due to the heat, there were quite a few times when I’d fall asleep on the Tube when I should have been drawing, so this piece perhaps took longer than it should to be completed.
A film of the drawing being created:
23 seconds showing the drawing process from onsite sketch to finished work of my my most recent drawing. In reality, it took many, many hours. . . . #DigitalDrawing #drawing #DigitalArt #art #iPhoneArt #Adobe #AdobeDraw #AdobeIllustrator #metro #train #underground #LondonUnderground #London #Tube #TFL #commuters #commuting #travel #OxfordCircus #Brixton #VictoriaLine #morning #rushhour #video
