So I’m back with more metro people.
But this time it isn’t I who’s capturing the many splendored specimens from our fabulous Parisian metropolitan, it’s master sketch artists.
Paris-based site De Lignes en Ligne, is an online forum expressly created for etchers of the underground. It’s a magnificent collection because each artist has his or her own style, and, yet all these artists’ drawings combine to form such an accurate, varied, colorful, and comprehensive portrayal of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the metro.
In perusing these drawings, I find myself musing… “I swear I’ve seen that guy before…” and… “her face looks so familiar.” After all, we Parisians spend so much time on the metro. “Maybe it was on line 10…” The artists generally specify on which line they found their artistic fodder, so you have to wonder…
(Yes, I’m totally going to keep checking back to see if one day I turn up in one of their etchings. )
