Wendy Macnaughton

“Since settling in San Francisco, Wendy has commuted by subway twice a day, five days a week, 30 minutes each way, where she’s observed and captured hundreds of fellow passengers. Her ink and watercolor drawings reflect the inner worlds of commuters: the quirks, anxieties, and above all the isolation—despite their proximity to others. She also creates maps that convey geography as a transient psychological experience, and personal diagrams that plot her feelings and thoughts as mathematical territory.”

love this last one despite tape.

Apart from this commuter series, she has produced a film in the Democratic Republic Congo and created and illustrated the national campaign for the first democratic elections in Rwanda.

Check out both her blog and her website – they are both full of great stuff.
