A sketch of 2 people


Some people like to read books and newspapers or listen to their iPods to entertain themselves whist travelling on the London Underground - Jan takes the opportunity to practice his drawing. He takes small sketch books with him and captures the faces and expressions of the other passengers within a couple of minutes. Many of the sketches were drawn on the way from Hammersmith to Whitechapel as Jan travels from his studio to his publisher.

Jan's Life Drawings

Jan has been drawing from life since he was fourteen. The difference now is that he does it with a computer. Jan draws these images of live models in Photoshop on his Mac, using a Wacom graphics tablet.

Each pose lasts from two to twenty minutes and the drawing has to be completed in this time, without subsequent digital manipulation.
