Would be nice if there were more available funding for functional creative projects like this bus stop in Baltimore, MD. The letter shapes of BUS allow passengers to assume different comfortable positions and the letter ‘B’ provides handicap-accessible shelter making all the waiting passengers part of the art. The project is a collaboration between Spanish collective designers, mmmm and Creative Alliance of Baltimore. You can read more about the project here at Creative Alliance.

Was attracted by the manner of presentation of these repeat patterns created by Barcelona-based illustrator, Judy Kaufmann. On an Etsy interview the artist describes her work as ‘repetitive, tumultuous, colorful and spontaneous’. You can see more of her work on her website and you can purchase some of her prints here on Etsy. For now I leave you with this instructive quote from Judy:
“I think the time you spend drawing is proportional to the quality of your artwork, and the time you spend traveling is proportional to the quantity of inspiration…”
