If there could have been a soundtrack to this sketch, it would be a lot of excited Bruins fans yelling, “WOO!” and “YEAH BRUINS!” because that is what I listened to as I drew it!
…and of course, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you are enjoying great food and company today!
My friend and co-worker Sean requested to be part of the Community College sketch. He is a Charlestown native and has so much love and pride for where he’s from, I thought he would be perfect to represent this T stop! After drawing his portrait in the freezing cold evening, we got hot chocolate at Dunkin’ Donuts, where he knew almost every single person who walked in the door. He is so involved in his community in so many ways and it was fantastic to see a slice of life in Charlestown! Thanks Sean!!
I’m feeling silly right now, so I’m posting this picture to illustrate exactly how excited I am about Project T-Scapes Postcards!!!
Sometimes when I sketch a T stop, I don’t like the direction it is going and I start over. This was a sketch of the rainbow tunnel that I abandoned before I added color, but I kind of like it the way it is, so I hope you do too.
I always find the rainbow tunnel at state street very exciting!

This lady and her adorable small child sleeping in a stroller seemed to be waiting for someone.
Tufts Medical Center has art made from painted aluminum by Richard Gubernick installed above the escalators. I never took a close look at exactly what the shapes were before doing this drawing. Whenever I saw them out of the corner of my eye, I thought they had something to do with sports. I think this was because of the bright colors and graphic shapes. I’m pretty sure they are just abstract though. What do they look like to everyone else?
