On the Best Jack Nicholson Drawing Ever

03Jan08

As we have discussed before, some of the best art in Washington Heights is in the subway stations. Here we pause to admire the genius of a delicate, floating (if raw and mildly distorted) line drawing of Jack Nicholson, which miraculously transforms a garish Hollywood poster into something subversive and entertaining, which is to say the complete opposite of our expectations for the movie itself (not that we plan to see it). This, unlike so much graffiti — the bulbous and illegible kind — is so fucking great, we are left craving more.
