This passenger tended to alternate between two configurations, which I sketched back and forth accordingly.

I found a cigar butt on the ground around the San Fernando light rail station on Friday May 24. It still smelled strongly 2 days after. I tried to draw the smell, but I am not sure if you can also smell it.

After boarding the train at the Santa Clara station, this girl settled to sleep with a bundle of her hair acting as an impromptu eye cover.

I saw this guy sitting at the lower deck of an evening train.

I saw a similar hat on a cafe table on Friday May 17 2019, and decided to draw a similar one back home.

Too late to learn?

Today during a computer eye break I went to a high school art show hold inside the company. Some of the works are impressive, especially given that they were made by high school students.

I skipped almost all my art and music classes as a kid as I thought they were useless. Experimental results indicated that drawing is not too late to pick up later, even though I wish I could have spent more time on music and physical training earlier in my life.

Sleepers

Sleepers tend to be good drawing subjects because they are more likely to be in a natural state and less likely to move or notice my presence.

I wasn’t sure what I was doing while there, but later I realized my mistakes; will redo.
