I enjoy sketching on BART, our subway system (which has been in the news since New Year’s Eve when BART police shot and killed a defenseless, unarmed young man which was captured on cellphone video and led to protests and rioting in downtown Oakland). BART’s headquarters are in the building where I work in downtown Oakland. To keep people safe inside, the building has been on “lock down” the past couple of weeks, with I.D.s required to enter the building to keep those of us working inside safe. There’s been no trouble though, with way more media and police around than protestors.
On BART this morning, this old man made a great model. He barely moved and had the most gigantic ears I’ve ever seen.
This would probably be better if I darkened all of the area around her but I liked her pointy nose.

Huh- I hadn’t even heard of the troubles over there! I’m guessing you are just too far away for our local news to cover 😉
Love the sketches- and I commented on your friend’s blog too 🙂
Love the woman with glasses halfway down her nose – you’ve got her perfectly! She looks like a character from a book.
Thank you so much for sharing your sketch book the other day at Crawl!
It was really nice seeing you and Martha, very inspiring!
I am looking forward to seeing you again at the next crawl!
