Memory Sketches


After seeing Stephen Silver's & Marcello Vignali's 'memory sketches' I thought I'd have a go. I've always felt uncomfortable drawing people on the tube - it's hard to remain inconspicuous & the trains shake so much. Committing people to memory then drawing them later at home or in the studio seems the perfect solution.

While the whole page is great, I especially like the one dead centre! Really nice movement to her gesture.

Thanks a lot Matt! Much appreciated.

I should really give this memory sketch thing a try. I have the same feelings you have when it comes to drawing from life.....
