THE BIG INTRO Subwaysurfer Interview One

Elgin Subwaysurfer Bolling is a certified "sketchaholic" (a termed coined by fellow caricature artist,illustrator, Kenly Dillard) hopeless afflicted with the disease of acute caricaturitus. He MUST draw EVERYDAY or feel mentally, emotional, and of course financially out of balance.
Subwaycommuting is another one of his afflictions, and lucky for him, as a NYC resident, Subwaycomuting is the basic mode of transportation for thousands of New Yawkers daily.
While most commuters endure the daily commute as a neccessary evil that takes them to their jobs, schools, or other activities, Elgin enthusiastically looks forward to every ride knowing that he will have yet another opportunity to visual document human behavior.
We caught up with Subwaysurfer in his Queens Studio for this exlusive interview.
