"Platform" by Jillian Tamaki, 2015

 

Jillian Tamaki’s comic strip Platform reveals a sequence of scenes showing the passing of time from multiple viewpoints. Tamaki presents us with quick snapshots – the life cycle of the subway platform – the process of entering the station, passing a bit of time, then finally entering the subway car – a cycle that repeats with every incoming train on every platform in the system.

Jillian Tamaki is a cartoonist and illustrator. She is the co-creator (with Mariko Tamaki) of This One Summer, which was awarded the Caldecott Honor in 2015. http://jilliantamaki.com/illustration/

 

Measures 9 x 44 inches

Please note: This original art card was on display in a NYC subway car, therefore some surface and edge wear will be present. This is your chance to own a piece of subway history!

What's The Story

Modeled after the Poster Program, the Art Card Program was initiated in 1999 by MTA Arts & Design. The Program provides opportunities for illustrators, print, and other visual artists to create evocative artwork for display within newer subway cars. Subway riders have the opportunity to enjoy colorful imagery as a source of thought and inspiration while traveling through the system.
