BART “The First Ride” series

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system featured my artwork for their 2010 Featured Artist poster series. The “The First Ride” series consists of  three different images that explore children’s imagination in the BART system. In each drawing a young rider sees something unusual that the adults are oblivious to. 

The direction from BART was very open ended. They were interested in something that explored a narrative in the BART system. I chose a child’s point-of-view because it best describes a sense of wonder, and it’s inclusive to all ages. Each scenario is a window into a passing moment of imagination while highlighting the unusual architecture of the BART system interiors.
