Archive: Times Square Bus Drawings (2005)

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.
