Here’s some illustrations for this month’s Wired Magazine about plans for High Speed Rail in America. The project made me think of articles in vintage Fortune Magazines that promoted future technology. I tried to bring that kind of optimistic vision of the future to these pieces. The spreads also included two maps that were going to get a lot of information graphics laid on them.

as per usual, great stuff paul. these are wonderful. i noticed an orange Amtrak banner ad last week that you may've drawn too....? kinda looked like a big steal penis bolting from the city with "movement lines". i can't see you behind or in front of movement lines as they appeared to be "jism-inspired". it had art director/ client interference strewn all over it!

I must have absentmindedly read the heading to your post without having it fully register in my conscious brain. I've had that song in my head all day and couldn't figure out why. Just noticed why. Ah, The Impressions.

These are amazing! I've loved trains, ever since my birthday parties at travel town. You've made them look exciting and thrilling again.
