Friday Fun: People on Public Transit Illustrated
Public transit can provide great opportunities for artists to capture people going places. Drawing by Aurora Andrews.

Public transit provides great opportunities for artists to capture people going places. Watercolor by Aurora Andrews.

In case you haven’t seen it, Flickr has a fantastic public group called People on Public Transit; it features — you guessed it — people riding public transit all around the world.

But illustrations of people on public transit can often capture even more than the photos.

New York-based artist Aurora Andrews was featured in Flavor Wire today for her talented  watercolors that exhibit how “tender moments in life can be captured with a combination of patience, skill, keen observation, and the application of color.”

Aurora’s artwork is a testament that in big cities like NYC, many of these tender moments take place on or around public transit. Take a look:
