Have you hugged your subway today?

Love Bound Train is a lovely, whimsical and funny website dealing with the love/hate relationship people have with public transportation. The site started when graphic designer Ava Savitsky and illustration/comic artist Griffin Waldau posted flyers asking riders what they thought of their local NYC subway line. The couple then created a line of toys, a comicbook, stickers, postcards and even cookies around the topic of the L train.

My favorite Love Bound Train project is where Savitsky and Waldau sketched new year's eve resolutions that are phone in to them by L train riders. Also their handmade DS game cartridge holder is pretty sweet too.
