ridin' that train...

on the subway in NY. it's not that i missed my El stop - it's just that i'm in town for a conference on apps. nothing like public transportation to appreciate your surroundings. this poster is part of a series of illustrators creating subway cards. you see these in a lot of cities, obviously. what i liked about this is, the illustrator looks like he's making fun of trains. it depicts a train which is shaped like a fish, and is a blimp instead of a train. inside each window are various oddities - an alien, a midget (or "short person" which, in my opinion, doesn't sound much better), a couple making out. the person exiting the train is jumping out the window.

looking around the subway car, i realize maybe the depiction is truer to life than i thought.
