There’s this special love I have for public transit. The observation of behavioural dispositions or wondering up a story for each individual. Then there’s that odd time when another might strike up a pleasant conversation that shifts the weight of your day. Dare I not forget about the daydreaming single-but-flirtatiously-inhibited folk whom turn to none other but the internet to find their lost love. Sophie Blackall displays the charm in these situations with uniquely funny copy and delicate illustrations . Widely known as a children's book illustrator, her wit and light-heartedness translates well to a grown-up audience too.
This collection has been published in a book for purchase here. She has also worked with MTA to produce an illustration for the glum looking subway trains in greater NYC.
