make me smile if I saw one on some packaging.
And I’m genuinely surprised it took so long

I wish I remembered to look at it more often.
Like everyday.
Just think of the vast amounts of

James Joyce is british designer/artist. Check out more of his work here.

I just saw these brilliant subway images from the 70s-80s. Sean Kernick from 24 flinching collected and posted them. Waxing poetic about New York...
...though these are nothing like the post Gulliani New York I knew.
