Train O' Thoughts, a Animated Collection of Portraits Drawn During Daily Subway Commutes

Cartoonist and teacher Tom Hart rides the Subway to work everyday. Naturally, he started drawing the characters he encountered on a daily basis, and after several months of drawing, he compiled a massive collection of interesting art that represented the City perfectly.

Ever sit across from a stranger on the subway and find yourself imagining a theoretical backstory for their lives? Who is this person? What are they thinking? Where did they come from, and where are they going? This has happened to artist Tom Hart a lot over the years. The result of these musings is his Train O’ Thots series of annotated illustrations, drawn live and in real-time during his subway commutes around New York City.

Hart, with the help of the (Gr)album Collective, published these drawings and animations into an interactive app entitled Train O’ Thoughts, complete with a moving soundtrack by Exaltron.

Train O’ Thoughts is available as a downloadable App on iTunes.
