Doodling on Toronto Transit

The Toronto Transit Commission selected one of my drawings for their 2017 Art in Transit program, Sketching the Line. It started appearing on random Toronto subway cars this summer. Such an honor! (I’m just shy about it being a selfie… #shouldafixedthatface)

Update:

It was wild to accidentally discover that my TTC drawing was featured in this Now magazine article. No doubt Cliff Goldstein’s story inspired TTC & Pattison, as before the story ran they did reach out to offer payment for using the artwork. (A tiny bit of research suggests they do pay creatives in other cities with similar programs.) The cash is really just a bonus, though: I felt entirely privileged to be featured in such high-visibility ad spots, and grateful to TTC & Pattison for offering local artists this opportunity.
