Love the commentary. So insightful, even more powerful than the doodles. You are awesome & amazing, artist & poet!

Have you ever considered animation? I would love to see these characters in motion.

Simon Fleming Posted Nov 21, 2008
Your work is fantastic. I love the confidence in your lines. You can almost feel the weight of these people through your images.

Brilliant - really original. I love studies of real people - I was thinking it would be so amazing to have a museum of sketches of people on the London tube from over the years. Ive done loads since about 1990, mostly of sleeping or reflected people as it makes people feel uncomfortable in an overpopulated city, if you draw them directly. I think most French & Italians on the London tube actually like being drawn though, take it as a compliment & might even come & look at it/talk to you about it after if theyre not in a hurry. Im more interested in drawing people worn out from work though!

I really should get round to posting my work as its a bit rude to judge without being judged, isnt it?!

I love your style. The words in your sketches really heighten it. I love it. I sware I'm going to through a dictionary at the next person that says words don't yield any physical power. KEEP IT UP!!

I love your aesthetic. Such great depth of character and such close attention to detail. Also love the choice of red/orange ink. The color often lightens the dark undertones and adds a playful dimension of sorts. Love it. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Nicely done. Reminds me a bit of Alan E. Cober. Very fine work. Good to see you taking on the human condition. Lacking in much reportage these days. I have a similar disposition. Check it out if you like.

ELBOW-TOE is the mad scientist of street art. His work is eclectic and ever evolving with content grounded in myth, symbolism and poetry.

I have always been fascinated by the direction of his art in the public spaces of Brooklyn and was therefore happy to learn that he carries a sketchbook with him on the subways of New York city.

For this awesome feature, we have 17 spreads from ELBOW-TOE's own book, all done flawlessly with a red felt pen.
