Sub Series 74-75

The last pages of this particular book. Boy, was I glad to be back in New York. Back in the Subway, back in the shaky tins pressed between people and their dreams and ideas. (And frustrations.)
The original idea for the little book was actually to make it all about the subway, to draw only in the subway, to go to places, to see New York from the subway. Because of the size of the little book, it could then be given to visitors, who would then try to retrack the adventures and sights and moments. (and yes, they could color in the drawings, why not?)
If you followed the book even for the last few pages, you know that I went off on too many tangents and had to many sidetracked thoughts to really make it work as originally intended. So maybe not this time, maybe in some of the upcoming books, maybe the real subway series will be a compilation of the best of the little books. Just the way it should be. Thank you so much for your attention and your kind words. Some of you wrote me that they even bought little Moleskine books and are now creating their own private Subway series. This is just wonderful. So many good moments. All around the world.

How did you get to this site?, Should I scan in the next book? (I have not yet.)


You are a major bookmark of mine! That's how I got here, as for scanning the next book, that's up to you! ;-) I love to see the pages but I know it takes a lot of time and energy. Maybe you should take a small break in any case. BTW, when will your pictures re-emerge on the blog home page?

Yes! Yes! Yes! Scan the new book... but only if you do not think it takes too much energy or time... I really enjoy seeing your drawings.

Just today I came through a link to your coffee post (april 02), but I already knew your site from nycbloggers and have visited it about twice a month.

We probably have crossed each other on the street without knowing.

I don't remember how I got here but I keep coming back. I've been very inspired.

Please scan in the next book and keep the commentary...uh...rambling.
And THANK YOU for your kind words and that in etcetera.
Lastly, I found you through none other than the Lovely Anna at http://www.absolutely-vile.com/

I don't how I originally got here, Witold, but it was many months before I actually had the courage to comment on anything.

And look, now you can't shut me up! :)

Posted by: Anna on February 27, 2003 12:13 PM

And yes, of COURSE you should scan the next book. This has become part of my daily routine!

Oh, yes, please continue to scan in your delightfully creative drawings from the pages of your Moleskine books. Thank you, also, for the insightful commentary which accompanies each entry.

I also would love to see you scan more books. I have had several Moleskine books of my own sitting around for months, and your drawings have finally inspired me to start using them (for some reason I have always had a problem getting started on a new sketchbook).

And I also found you through Anna's site.
