Jacksonville Transit Poster Art


Transit Art from LightRailJax on the Jacksonville, Florida Transit Blog. The "official seal" is from the Jacksonville Traction Company so these won't be posted around town anytime soon.

Dated November 23, 2008, LightRailJax blogs this about his Prisoners of the White Lines poster art:

Well it's not much but it is a first effort at "Cyber-Art", with nothing more then "Paint" and a free Photobucket Account. What do you think? Look like anyone you know? Maybe a whole city full of prisoners? Yes, for those old enough to remember, the line came from the song "Coyote", by Joni Mitchell. While the song itself was about a whole different set of urban problems, either in lyrics or reality, yet the end result is the same. Somehow we are all "Prisoners of the white lines on the freeway..."

To paraphrase a fellow 60's radical to all of you in Computer Land, "STEAL THIS IMAGE!"

We like to share!
