I took this picture in Oxford, England. I made this sketch very quickly...

I have a doubt, it may be really stupid, but there's no one best to answer than yourself. How do you do this? I mean, I always wandered how is it that you, for example in this picture, drew some people on that little "boat" (no idea how that's called) and actually made a drawing of it. Those people don't like look they are posing for you, so how is it that you draw something which is supposed to be moving, and still get them to be in the same position as before for the picture? I don't know if I'm being clear enough, but if you understand what I mean, and don't mind, please do answer :)
I love your work, I must say.

i was wondering the exact same thing littleshireling. dont get me wrong your work is extremely innovative and amazing ben but im just trying to figure out how you get everything to line up. Do you take a photo, sketch, then take a photo of you holding the sketch over the original photo and maybe retouch the final? Or are you just that good? either way i admire your skill and creativity.

How did you get the boat to line up with the photo? That's amazing!
