Sketchbook - subway sleeping

I love to see people sleeping on the subway. More people should do it. It makes my sketching easier. Pass the word on , please.

Bloor Gladstone Library people.

Dufferin Mall mall rats. Seen at the food court. I've noticed that when I sketch the older demographic and when they notice what I'm doing, they don't care. They just keep on doing what they were doing. Like this gentleman here. Thank you sir for not freaking out.

Figure drawing at the TSA

Its been a while since I've been to a figure drawing class. Tonight I decided to change that stat and went to the open figure drawing class at the Toronto School of Art. The session lasted 3 hours, with some breaks sprinkled amongst the 3 hours. All the poses were 10 and 15 minutes. Great length to just get down the essentials. I'll be sure  go to the next one.


The last spread of the evening. The drawing on the left is my favourite from the evening, nice and loose.
