New York artist Jason Shelowitz launches 'Subway Etiquette' poster campaign

If you see something, don't just say something -- do something. And make it snarky.

 

Fed up with irritating subway behavior, New Yorkers have started taking matters into their own hands. Manhattan graphic designer Jason Shelowitz, also known as JayShells, began his "Subway Etiquette" poster campaign last week.

 

The 30-year-old asked 100 people for their biggest nonservice-related subway gripes, choosing the 10 most common issues. He then designed 366 humorous MTA-style posters reminding passengers about inappropriate subway behavior and has posted the silkscreened posters at various subway stations.

 

Those lucky enough to see one should take it, with Shelowitz's blessing -- the MTA has been taking down the posters.
