The Rat Racer

As you know I am currently temping while waiting for my next acting job to come along. This is a notoriously quiet time of the year and in fact I don't expect to be working as an actor again til the New Year.
Who knows though eh!?

Anyway during my temping adventure so far I have met some really lovely and incredible people. A lot of people out there temping or on Reception have such exciting artistic outlets and are also pursuing a creative way to pay their bills.
Today I'm back at a certain agency to work with one of their Receptionists. Well she is a Receptionist 9-5 but in more underground circles is better known as The Rat Racer! She is a terrific artist and has been building up a portfolio to eventually land an illustrating job. One of her outlets is The Rat Racers . On her daily commute she secretly sketches the other passengers and then posts them up on her blog as a daily collection, each one with a unique title.
Here are just a few to tantalise you but for the full range (which I think would make a superb coffee table book), check out her blog. Become a follower if you're a London commuter - you may spot yourself or your fellow travellers!
