Earlier That Morning on the 5 Train (Thursday, 7-15-10)
latest updates: r train
Just doing it on the R train to Union Street.
My solid subject for the rest of that ride fading between levels of consciousness, wood paneling makes for evening sleepiness. R train to Union Street, 6-10-10.
He was reminiscent of a heavy set Conan O’Brien although a bit paler in the hair. His big brown and white jacket with the red stripe seemed to go on forever. I liked it though, it was fun- like color by numbers on the R back to BK.
R train, Monday 5-24-10. Guy on the left actually a composite of 2 – the first who’s head this is mostly based on took off quick on the ride from Union street.
Couple (suspected tourists) on the R. The guy in his ultra mint pullover doing much of the yammering as his girl played with her camera.
Waiting for the R back to BK at Canal street. The train is sitting as I enter the station. I get on and sit for a while sketching this woman as the bad smell from the station wafts into the car. Just as the doors are about to close I realize that this actually a W and serves me no purpose and hop off just in time.
Woman in White on the R from Canal To Union St. (Monday, 2-1-10)
Her stark white coat and pale skin popping ot against the sea of black puffy jackets and dark wood paneling on the slow moving R train.
Not just dozed off, but emitting an audible snore, the kind of sleep that makes you wake up in Forest Hills last stop on the R an hour later wondering where the hell you are. R Train, 3-12-09.
Man with giant blue jacket and Cyclones hat on the R, 2-3-09.
