NYC Subway Commuters Drawn Live
This video features a collection of my caricatures of various subway commuters Ive drawn live on the subway trains of New york City. This is extreme life drawing, as many of these people have no idea they are being drawn, and those who do, have "interesting " reactions! To me, The subway is a microcosm of the world. It is the one place where people of every gender, race, Social Economic Status, political or religious affiliation, come together to share space in a situation of forced intimacy. I act as a visual anthropologist of sorts recording this information for all the world to see. We all share a common humanity, we're all on a destination somewhere.
