WNM instructor Hamilton Cline’s unique BART commuter portraits will be showcased in new book
Home to one of the most heavily trafficked public transportation systems in the country, San Francisco makes for an interesting commute, and Hamilton Cline captures it almost every day. On his way to work as an instructor for the School of Web Design & New Media (WNM) at Academy of Art University, Cline continues an artistic journey he’s been on for almost two years.
Every morning, Monday through Friday, he takes a seat on Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), chooses a fellow commuter across the way and whips out his Samsung Note 3 to create a portrait illustration, adding to his archive that is now in the thousands. But for Cline, it’s about one thing and one thing only: Practice.
