Drawings: "Vintage Times Square Downtown Bus" #1 & #2. (2005)
Approx. size: 8 x 10 inches each. Water soluble crayon and ink on board.
I rarely ever take NYC buses, so when I happen upon them in vintage photos,
I'm much more bemused by them than I am, say, photos of the subway.
I'm not sure why I didn't do more drawings involving buses in the '90s,
but I may have to do some soon. The varied shapes and colors of the buses
(especially those of the 1940s and 1950s) always interested me for what seems like a
lack of overall fleet uniformity and make for really solid subject matter.
