At Vernon and (Michael) Jackson boulevards

Someone taped this drawing to the front window in a 7 train car Wednesday.

As daily riders on the 7, N and Q trains, we have pretty much seen it all.

From roaming mariachi bands to dancers swinging from the overhead bars to an old Asian guy cutting his toenails, the MTA never fails to entertain on our daily commutes. 

But Wednesday night we discovered we were on a rolling art gallery.

An extremely well-executed ink drawing of a young man, who bears quiet a striking resemblance to a teenaged Michael Jackson, had been taped to the front-end window. 

It reminded us a bit of those Al Hirschfeld sketches of Broadway actors back in the day, including some of the white space which appear to create words. Check the spot just above Michael’s ear and you can clearly see an a and an x in cursive writing. 

We were also curious about the intertwined horseshoes that appear on the shirt collar. 

If you know the artist, or if you are the artist, tell us where to see more of these drawings, even if the admission price is more than a swipe of our Metro Card.
