DadWagon Gets Classy: Ami Underground

March 15th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  1 Comment

As readers of this blog certainly know by now, the fellows over here at DadWagon are great lovers of art (please see this, this, and this, as examples of our finer sensibilities).

I jest. We’re barbarians. (Ed. note: Some of us more than others. And by that we mean Christopher.)

Maybe that’s why it gives me such pleasure to display the artwork of a good friend of mine. Amitai Plasse publishes these great sketches people on New York’s subways at his blog, Ami Underground. The style is decidedly minimalist—you try doing something fancy in between stations—but still manages to capture a bit of actual urban humanity. An accomplishment. Below are a few examples, all kid-centric.

If you want to see more, check out his website, or go see the movie about him. He’s famous.
