Here's a few more sketches from subway sketching.

Some people ask me why the yellow paper...
No reason. I found a stack of old yellow paper in a drawer and didn't want it to go to waste.

nice job bobby. i do a lot of sketching on trains too. the constant movement of the train makes it challenging. i love it. there are always lots of interesting characters to observe. keep it up.
