UK sketchbook: people

showery day in London UK

What tweaks my interest? Idle doodles in my book reveal simple lines quickly capture people interacting with each other. No digital gadgets so constantly enthralling these days. Today I sat on a bus watching two girls using their phones to check their make-up, comb their hair and look at pictures (of themselves?) – so self absorbed that a simple comment from one elicited no more than a quick cursory glance and a grunt from the other.

  1. Hi Jo, I couldn’t figure out another way to reach you so thought I’d try this and see if it works. It’s Donna Jean MacKinnon – just saw your poster at Opus be coincidence. What a nice surprise! I can’t come this Saturday but might be able to come next Wednesday. Might you be there? You can contact me at Thanks 🙂
