I met Mo Jamma on the overground line. He was inking portraits in a sketchbook with reckless abandon, kindling curiosity and smiles from those sitting around – which as a much more furtive portrait-sneaker I thought was both gutsy and a great conversation-sparker.
We got to talking about comics and illustration, and he suggested a portrait exchange. Here is my contribution: I thought the open way in which he drew on the tube was great – so transferred him to public space transport, which turns out to be the most fun transport to draw.
Here’s Mo’s portrait of me – not only did he use sea-blue-green, but even added birds! Amazing. I feel like I could walk into a dreamy manga.
