Les amis du plancher
Lights up in case of noise.
By Jerome & Amandine
These pictures were taken during a few of my daily hour-long journeys from Aldgate East to Tooting Bec, and put together as a big informal cloud, as confused as my perception of time and space while traveling underground.
(I just remember a few of my favourite things…)
I had to make up a postcard advertising a fictive exhibition at Barbican Art Gallery featuring Saul Bass, a designer famous for the trailers he did for Hitchcock’s movies (Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder…).
I tried to retrieve his visual vocabulary and the typography so typical of his, and to associate the jagged figures of the Barbican Towers, as well as the London skyline further away.
All the hands I have been drawing for a week when taking the Northen Line from Bank to Tooting Bec.
October the 4th
On the way back
2nd of October.
I start a new series of drawings made in the tube, on my way to work, featuring more exactly my journey from Bank to Tooting Bec.
The rule number 1 is that whenever I can get to sit down I start drawing someone in my carrige.
The rule number 2 us that i must start a new drawing at each station the train stops to.
The rule number 3 is that I must keep 2 free newspapers of each day I’m taking the tube and drawing: a morning paper and an evening one.
