Faces on the Ferry
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Rachelle Meyer | Share link: http://illo.cc/69574

Since the beginning of 2017, I’ve taken a small sketchbook with me on the NDSM ferry, which travels from my home in Amsterdam Noord to the center, where I have my studio. I made portraits of fellow commuters quickly in pencil during the 12 minute ride, then completed it with fineliners and occasionally with marker as a warm up in the mornings with a cup of coffee. It became a series that I shared on Instagram called #facesontheferry. This has been such a precious and interesting record for me, we also made a short film of it for our creative collaborative, Therewise Enterprises.
