As you may know, the MetroCard is the payment method for the New York Subway. It's not only for tube, but also for MTA buses, PATH trains, AirTrain JFK, and so on. You can use it for almost any kinds of transportation system in New York, the empire state. So it's a mandatory card for anyone in New York City and also it's a iconic card that reflects the city. I created this artwork for the MetroCard artwork project Creative Technologist Dofl launched to give a life to the static card design.
All blobs stand for all transportations and buildings in New York city. I tried to express that New York City is very active and dynamic city with all kinds of elements such as buildings, buses, subway trains, people, signs, even steam pipes. They are connected each other very organic way. I drew them in black and white comic book style.
