Posterchild––street artist extraordinaire and our new curator for Vandalist––has taken it on himself to fill the empty hooks of the TTC’s subways, streetcars, and buses with new and improved information flyers. For the past week, he’s posted details of one flyer a day to his blog: Monday was a subway and streetcar colouring book; Tuesday was tips on how to flirt on the subway (pictured above); Wednesday was a guided graffiti tour along the 510 Spadina streetcar route; Thursday was a cryptogram, maze, connect-the-dots game, and riddles; and today’s, Friday, was a claim that the whole system is now free.
In the participatory spirit often present in Posterchild’s work, each day’s project includes .jpgs of each flyer (some of which include Robot Johnny’s anagram TTC map) so that that you can print them out and distribute them yourself––which you totally should, because if there’s anything the TTC system needs more of right now, it’s a healthy dose of parody. And, uh, lots and lots of money.
