He would have to, unless this was SOMEHOW orginazed, there is no possible way he knew those people would be perfectly aligned with the paper at that exact moment. And not a snowballs chance in HELL he drew it in a fraction of a second to match all that.

If I may ask, how do you do this? 

Because I thought you where making the drawing in advance then take the picture, but here it isn't possible for the two to match with people moving. Or is your hand holding the drawing pasted on the photo? 

PS: love your work a lot, it's so inspiring!

I do a rough sketch first and I often do some edits/corrections afterwards for the connections
