Missed Connection

My first assignment for this summer's class at SVA was an illustration for a message in the "Missed Connections" section of Craigslist. The cryptic post I picked said simply, "Your contribution to the universe has been acknowledged." It reminded me of all of the amazing subway musicians I've seen surrounded by herds of oblivious commuters, and also those few times I've heard something wonderful drifting mysteriously from a distant part of the station.

I was a little nervous to undertake this when it popped into my head; the colors were so moody, and the composition required to pull off the concept was pretty deadpan. But I wound up being pleasantly surprised—it's probably one of my favorite pieces so far. I am very much in love with all the characters here, especially the cranky New Yorkers in the middle.
