Bodies in motion and at rest

OK, so I stole this post’s title from Galileo via Thomas Lynch’s lovely (though off-topic) book. Let’s resume the thread with the artist’s own statement: “Subway drawings have become a big part of my sketching life, I used to read on my commute to the city but if you’ve read one Grisham you’ve read ’em all. I live out in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and take the 5 train into the city, as any commuter will tell you, you see the same people time and time again.”


from “Life on the 5,” drawings by Stephen Gardener, Urban Sketchers, 13 November 2008
