I did this bus driver sketch in 2017 on a trip from Portland to Boston.
Drawing people in public is one of my favorite things to do, but there are two main problems that hinder that kind of sketching. People are not good at sitting still and they generally don’t like to be stared at.
This is one of the reasons I love the Concord Trailways bus line that goes from Portland to Boston. I can usually get a seat almost across from the driver. They can’t really move that much, and can’t see me drawing them.
I did give this driver the sketch when we got to Boston. He laughed with surprise, thanked me, and put it in his bag, so I think he liked it.
