On Location: The Q Train

Well, folks, this is it–my final SVA sponsored post! This was my final project for my drawing on location class. I intrigued by the subway stations in this city. They are all so different. Some are beautiful and bright and some are downright creepy! I wanted to draw some of the stations on my daily commute from Queens to Manhattan and I chose to juxtapose each station with what lies above (or, if you're up in Queens, below) the station. Same location, two different worlds. I'm planning on making this an ongoing project and would definitely like to do the whole Q-train route over the summer!
