And now for something completely different...
"First off, THE WAVE is a QUEENS NEWSPAPER Located in the Rockaways, it is the third oldest paper in NYC, and recently was honored by both NEW YORK MAGAZINE, and THE VILLAGE VOICE as being the Best of the Best in NYC.
I am one of the reasons for that. My name is Elgin Bolling, AKA Subwaysurfer. I am the Editorial Artist, for the Paper, and my cartoons have helped to add to the papers already fine reporting.
I'm a pretty interesting character myself though. First off, I'm a Queens Resident. I live in Far Rockaway, I am a professional illustrator and caricature entertainer who is a regular at the World Famous Sardi's Restaurant and I have a rather interesting ongoing open ended project I call, "subwaysurfing" This is my term for extreme life drawing on the MTA. My blogsite, subwaysurfer.blogspot.com, records most of my observations, exploits and pictures that I have been doing online since 2006. The site has well over 40 thousand visitors and is well worth a look-see.
Won't you come and look-see?
Here is a sample of work that appeared in The Wave Newspaper as well as a few subwaycommuters.
I hope you stop by.
