While in Austin this summer, I’ve created 11 drawings of the Central Texas landscape on NYC Metrocards (size: 2.5″ x 3.5″) for Single Fare 4. This is the third Single Fare show I’ll be participating in, and every time it gets better and better! Opens September 16th at Highline Stages. More info on their event page.
