Subway Riders #1 (No. 2/25)
One day last summer, we rode up to the Bronx Zoo. We live in Brooklyn, near the 2/3 trains, so it's an hour and 15 minutes or so to get there...and the same home. That's a lot of drawing time. These sleepers, musicians, readers, commuters, and phone-starers just kept coming. Every profile was so different and completely intriguing.
• Unframed piece measures 6" x 9"
• Letterpress printed in an edition of 25, and then hand watercolored, so each of the 25 finished images is actually different.
• This listing is for the specific image you see in the accompanying photographs.
These drawings are part of a series entitled "Everything is Somewhere". They are blind line contour drawings I made all over New York City in the summer of 2014. Each drawing was made into a plate, which I then letterpress printed, and each finished piece is hand watercolored, making each image in the edition of 25 unique.
