Project Subway NYC finally launched an Etsy shop! From now til Cyber Monday (11/26), all prints will be on sale (20% cheaper than our original SquareSpace shop). Check them out, they make good Christmas Gifts!
This station has sooooo many entrances, 19 to be exact!
( And I just realized there is "FML" in the station name...haha.)
It's interesting how some color schemes have such strong identities. When I look at each station and the combination of colored lines that pass through them, I will draw connection to random things..
For example, are you a Knicks or Mets fan? Two of my new prints happen to be blue and orange:
Poll results for next batch of five
Back to the drawing board, I was overwhelmed with the complex stations that I planned to draw... so I decided to pick one of the lower hanging fruits first. West 4th is a transfer station, but the station is straight, so i thought it's a good one for me to get back to drawing mode.
One interesting thing I noticed about West 4th, is that there is no exits on 4th street!! I don't know on top of my head, but I am almost sure West 4th is not the only station like this. After "Split", I would like to coin another term here:
- A subway station in NYC which doesn't have an entrance or exit on the street it is named after.
After I had the 3D model done, I am now collecting images on Pinterest for inspiration on different styles of architectural illustrations. Should I keep it black and white? Should I print it out and trace it with hand? How can it be both pretty and legible and informative?
