From the man who brought you awesome projects like Subway Etiquette and Rap Quotes, comes this really nifty print. Jay Shells’ latest is an eleven-color screen print that includes all of the letters that are not currently used in subway lines.
Subway artist Jay Shells, well known for his etiquette campaign, is back with a brand new signage project. This time around he is tackling a much more sensitive topic: the NYPD. Jay shells out a steaming hot tray of irony, replacing images on Transit Police recruitment ads with terribly embarrassing photos of officers caught by cell phones, etc. The image above, for example, came from a video that made rounds recently of an officer body slamming a teen who had allegedly not paid his fare.
