Vancouver comics artists’ work is being seen by more people than ever before.
It’s all thanks to an initiative on the part of local publisher/collective Cloudscape Comics, working with the City of Vancouver’s Cultural Department.
Comics in Transit is a public art project that brings comics by local artists to transit shelters. Bus-riders and passersby can view work by some of the city’s most talented illustrators, including Colin Upton, Steve Rolston, and The Simpsons/Futurama comics artists James Lloyd and Nina Matsumoto.
In total, 20 giant-sized one-page comics will be going up before the end of October. Some are already installed, including Matsumoto’s, which is at the busy Dunbar & 41st stop.
