Illustration Friday – Jay-Z on Marcy Ave

This week’s topic for Illustration Friday is transportation, which kind of threw me for a loop. I’ve been thinking about trains a lot for some reasons lately, as transportation and as a motif, so I decided to make a piece that’s a bit of a throwback, weaving together a profile of Jay-z, a young portrait, and his eponymous J and Z train lines in Brooklyn with where he grew up, a superimposed map of the Marcy Projects. Let me know what you think, contact me if you want a print.
