Back on the passenger wagons

This was a service on which I actually had use of my hands – most trips while I wait for my motorbike helmet to come back have been to crammed to draw.

Surgères

From La Roma – purveyors of tasty yet odd pizzas.

Have to work on my cars. They always start well, but it’s the wheels that stuff ’em every time.

Back on the train sketching

Difficult to sketch on a motorbike – my new highly effective escape from the clutches of Southern Rail. Nice to have a break though.

Had to respond to this wonderfully shiny pate.

Commuters on the wrong train

Wrong for me, that is.  My home town suddenly became inaccessible by train so I had to get as close as I could on these chaps’ train..

Very kind of them.
