Subway Poster




A poster for Drawn in Brooklyn with the cover image from Big Red Lollipop is on my local subway platform. For some reason I am enormously excited about this. I may not be in The New Yorker, but I'm on the subway!! I am also quite certain it is only a matter of time before the poster is defaced... I can't wait. I think fangs and a moustache would work nicely. Also, a few feet along was this companion piece. Note the recurring lollipop motif?

That's so cool! It's the perfect eye-catching image for a poster. I find your poster a bit more welcoming than the movie one ;)

Hi Sophie..
I've noticed an other important thing in that photo... The written "CARROLL" behind you drawing! Carroll like Lewis Carroll, the father of Alice in Wonderland....It's more than a coincidence!congratulation for your wonderful works!!!
