I Saw This Person

And drew him

The northern tip of Manhattan in NYC is an area called Inwood. I’ve drawn parts of it before, and will again. It’s a lovely area that is quieter than downtown, and has a park surrounded by the Spuyten Duyvil Creek (connecting the Harlem River and Hudson) right outside the building. One thing about living here is that the subway ride to midtown can be a half hour trip. But it gives me time to people watch, do emails, listen to a book, or draw someone on my iPhone. Yesteday, I scanned the car and this man was sitting directly across from me. He never noticed that I drew him (I don’t think).

I used a different drawing tool on my app, first by accident and then I kind of enjoyed seeing it. Do you see the difference, what do you think?
