Melted Crayon Art with NYC Subway Map
So, this is art. The colors certainly are vibrant. But, call me a cartography purist or whatever, I hate seeing this happen to a subway map. I like subway maps. I know they're wildly disproportionate in scale, but they're still fun to look at. The melted wax obscures all the goodness of the map. In the words of L Magazine Culture Editor Henry Stewart: "I don't get it."
