-“Does he even notice me or am I just invisible?”

Montreal based graphic designer Amanda Mocci produced these fascinating people studies while traveling by subway as a student.

I would carry my sketchbook with me every day and draw people.  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.

– “Toronto? no, maybe Vancouver? Montreal no, maybe Barcelona!”

-“No one ever wants to listen to me.”

The drawing style is simple because she wanted to “evoke movement through still figures by using smudges and blotches of color.”  Her Les personnes du métro page has more of these to browse, including close-up detail.
