"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/

|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.|
