I sketched this guy playing guitar last night, waiting for the train.
I didn't have a sketchbook on me......so I used an excel gum package instead.
He was really amazing, had a crowd, and all, and these girls were dancing. I gave him 5 bucks. I know it looks like two different people, but I didn't have my glasses on me, and besides, it was 1 am.

I was catching up with Justin last night, we spoke for at least an hour, then I looked down and realized I had been doodling the whole time, and these are some of the results. They both started with just one eye, and evolved into something completely surreal. The subway scene I put a bit of thought into, starting with the kid in the middle, then smudging it , realizing he was wizzing by in a train, then adding in the rest. not as exquisite as my shot in the Tripplettes of the train slowing down matrix style with all the char's just sitting there. I realized a couple of years later that I had no idea how to properly clean up and inbetween, (it took me far longer than it should have, but Sylvain was too crazy running around to notice)......only after my friend Mario Carmel at Pascal Blais showed me, (2-3 years into my carreer as an animator). Then I thought it'd be a good idea to work on Sinbad as a clean up/ IB artist for a couple of months to really say I knew how.
what was this post about again? oh yeah, I was just chatting with Justin, and this is what I drew.
Free drink of whoever can tell me which train they're riding.

a true napkin drawing, on the subway around 11pm last night. A couple of nice older ladies saw me doing these sketches and handed me one of their notebooks to draw them. They didn't speak english, but they seemed happy with what I gave them. I only had two stops to scribble something down... that's never happened to me before, it was really cool!
