Illustrator Chris Sickels Discusses the Creation of The Blowing Bowler Stop Motion Animation in Fulton Center

The Blowing Bowler is a cute animated video created by Chris Sickels and RedNoseStudio for the MTA Arts & Design department that features a man chasing after his hat as it blows past different decades of subway car designs.

Illustrator Chris Sickels talks about “The Blowing Bowler”, a stop-motion animation video, now screening at the Fulton Center. The animation depicts a brief history of New York City’s subway car designs as a man pursues his wind-tossed bowler hat in a subway station.

The video is being shown on the 52 large LED screens at Fulton Center for 2 minutes at the top of every hour.
