    Wow, I really love the sheer quantity - and the quality is of course amazing as well. Isn't Starbucks great for sketching all sorts of people? More please!

    Fantastic stuff so far. You capture personality and gesture really well with the coffee shop stuff - and keep everything so clean while you do it!
    The scribbly stuff is super fun, I really like the girl pulling on the sock in the middle. Such a great pose

    We've already discussed this small project in depth so you know I really enjoy looking through all the pages of daily Starbucks life, something every person in that cafe experiences at least once and then immediately forget the experience. But you've gone out and recorded these moments, of motion, emotion, the clack of a keystroke and the silent contemplation of thought. I'm always ready for more.

    Looking at these really makes me want to go in some cafeteria and draw a little. Really inspirational. Love your lines, all these faces seem very alive. You clearly know what you're doing...

    Man I must say you a big THANK, because you just gave me that feeling I could work all night long ! Your sketches are amazing plus you truly see some improvement in one or two months, wich is awesome and motivating.

    Gotta follow your thread : D

    a seemingly quick and effective method of simple tools to capture the mood and energy of your subjects! and so much content I could stare at this for days!

    Seriously, I envy the beautiful lines you make to illustrate a person.

    Damn!, I can't go to the coffee shop just yet because I'll be drawing zombies rather than people. ahahahah

    In all your wicked sick bro!

    What did you use to do these effective sketches and doodles, John Zysltra? Ink or pencil? I myself often even use markers.

    One of my new favourites from now on.
    your life drawings are cool but what i literally fell in love from teh first sight are the imagination pages with big booty babes and superheros
    The beatiful rythms and fluid forms, amazing.
