I live in Shenzhen, China. Usually, I take a subway to work and it’s a 30 minutes journey. Rarely, when it’s not crowded, I sketch co-passengers.

The interesting part of it is that people always move and they get off before I finish the sketch. So I have to be quick and most of them are finished in 3-5 minutes.

I have hundreds of unfinished sketches.

Reading a book on the metro

Surprisingly, I have witnessed one person reading a book on a metro journey.

Sleeping beauty

I have often seen people sleeping on the metro, especially after work. Sometimes I sleep too.
