Flier by Jamie Bruno for Doodle Drag

New Jersey’s Doodle Drag is at it again! This Sunday, July 17, the drawing collective will be hosting “Joy Rider,” a drawing party on the subway.

Doodle Drag is known for hosting random acts of doodling on either side of the Hudson. Earlier this year, they compiled animations and drawings to illustrate fourteen songs by Doodle Drag-er Marissa Paternoster’s band, Screaming Females. This time, they’re invading New York:

have you ever felt like getting a bunch of your friends together and taking over a subway car to turn it into a drawing room for as long as the ride lasts? yea we felt the same way so let’s do it this SUNDAY, JULY 17th at 3PM in NYC.

The Doodlers will be meeting in Union Square, next to the Washington Statue, and riding the train all the way to Coney Island. Participants are asked to bring drawing utensils, paper, and tape — D. Drag encourages the riders to post their work up on the subway walls, as well as distribute their art to “jaded New Yorkers.” To that I say, we’ll show you jaded!

I have always been excited about Doodle Drag’s emphasis on collaborative drawing and simultaneous enthusiasm for new media. LNY, the other half masterminding Doodle Drag, created a great little video for the event.

So I’ll see you Sunday then?
