I.M. Pi subway compass stencils

Remember that street artist whose helpful stencil compasses we commended back in June for providing much-needed directions for disoriented citizens exiting subway stations? NYC The Blog had a brief, not all that revelatory email interview with the mysterious artist, who goes by “I.M. Pi” (after the seminal modernist architect). Among the exchange’s few revelations is her/his announcement that she/he will be touching up existing stencils around Manhattan and adding more in Brooklyn soon; that certain subway exists are impossible due to perpetual police presences; and regarding her/his future plans: “You will see and don’t worry you won’t miss it.” Can we request stencils for Jay Street-Metrotech?
