Back of the heads.

This is a series of sketches that were drawn in some lectures. It is a interesting observation to focus on the audiences who were surrounding me, more than the speakers.
Most of the time I was sitting in the back of the lecture theater, while listening the lecture, I observed the the people in front of me in the same time, some of them were intently listening to speaker, some were sleepy, some were sitting cross-legged on the chair (sometimes off shoes), even some were stealthy eating. This series of sketches have been done on a concertina sketchbook, when you open this sketchbook, every single scene will naturally became a pair of coherent image, which is an interesting documenting of the audiences.

Totally, 13 sketches in this concertina sketchbook.

All sketches in this project:
