Shepard Fairey’s limited edition poster for A Total Disruption.
A mash note to the subway, designer Jody Williams is creating high quality silkscreened art prints that depict New York City’s public transit system.
Each print is screen-printed in 13 colors by hand, a process that produces beautiful results and takes even longer than a New York commute. It’s an underground tribute and our Project of the Day.
Tracks of my tears
This past summer, for reasons that need not be named, two best friends found themselves crying in public places.
This tearful duo may have made a public spectacle, but the experience served as inspiration for a tongue-in-cheek essay dubbed Acceptable Reasons to Cry in Public. Satirical in tone, but utterly sincere in intent, the co-authors felt it was a natural next step to make their words as public as the misty meltdown.
Together, they’re printing the piece as a series of broadsheet, letter-pressed posters. Backers are encouraged to post three copies in public spaces of their choosing, keeping one for themselves. Meanwhile, we’re posting the as our Project of the Day. Sniff.
