A tote that she made for a Strand design competition, it placed second, but in my stigmatized gaze it is clearly number one!

Domitille Collardey

March 4, 2012

As I was fooling around on the internet, as I tend to do, I stumbled upon a comic artist named Domitille Collardey. I really like her work and wanted to post this image that I found of hers (on her site) that I find beautiful!

I loved taking public transit in New York when I lived there. Everyone in New York takes the subway or the bus regardless of their socio-economic class. It’s a living breathing organism that the citizens of New York rely on. I observed beautiful, tender moments, violent outbursts, attempts to spread the word of Jesus, Allah and Biggie Smalls. I had conversations with strangers about my life and theirs. I fell in love and out of love countless times on my rides in and out of the city. Sophie Blackall captures the spirit of the MTA riders in her illustrative work entitled ‘Missed Connections’ that is currently on display in the New York subway cars.
