The people of the metro and their thoughts is an alphabet book that I completed in my last semester of University (UQAM). On a school day it would take me about 3 hours to go and come back. I usually draw or brainstorm during that time and that is how I fell upon my idea. I would carry my sketchbook with me everyday and draw people I find interesting. I would then associate the people with adjectives. After that I would come up with an imaginative phrase that goes with their appearance and what they might be thinking at that moment. The drawing style is quick and simple. I wanted to evoke movement through still figures by using smudges and blotches of color. Also the metro is not a very clean place so I would sometimes put my drawings on the floor and walk over them to give them that extra distress.
