Vicarious Doodlers on the Train
I'm not a big fan of public transport (it kind of scares me), but today I found a reason to love it. Vicarious doodlers. The people that ever so stealthy peak over your shoulder to see what you're scribbling in that notebook. Today I could feel so many passengers sneaking in for a quick snoop, maybe hoping to be my peek-hour muse. It made me giggle to catch their eye as they snapped their sight back to someplace less intimate, like out the window.
I'd like to start ripping mine out to leave on the seat as I run off the train. And you know how some restaurants have their tables covered in butchers paper? What about train interiors lined entirely with butchers paper, crayons hanging from every seat....
Anyone else got some ideas for making public transport more doodler-friendly? We could start a petition and all sign in the margins.
