Children’s Illustrators Commissioned by MTA Arts and Design Team
The artwork, featured on subways across the city, is designed to “enliven the customer’s commute” while paying tribute to New York.
While the Arts and Design department scours a number of sources to find illustrators, including social media, art exhibitions, and illustration annuals, Hausmann and her team have also been inspired by picture books on bookstore shelves. Among children’s book illustrators with posters and art cards out this year are Ashley Bryan, Jillian Tamaki, and James Ransome. (Publishers Weekly)
