Quick sketches on a Uber ride

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 9:35 pm

The evening Caltrain schedule was delayed again due to yet another trespasser incident, so I took advantage of the company commuter program for a shared Uber ride.
This is the first time I drew portraits in a moving car. Compared to trains, I can more discreetly sight fellow subjects sitting in front of me. I focused so much that I barely noticed the traffic.
I had difficulty drawing the ears when the heads were moving, and the lighting was changing.

The easiness and frequency of Caltrain suicides are alarming; if one crosses an intersection with a bullet train (no pun intended) passing at peak speed, the death is almost guaranteed.
