Otto Steininger's Pre-COVID MTA Poster

[ Posted: Jun 01, 2020 ]


One of Otto’s favorite pre-COVID projects was being invited to create a poster for the MTA. While he was working on it, his 7 year-old daughter looked over his shoulder and spotted Coney Island, where she had never been before. His description of it sounded so larger than life to her that it inspired her to do a drawing of it (see below), she even made tickets to take all her classmates there - all the way from Congo, where they lived at the time! That in turn inspired Otto to plant a dedication to her on the Coney Island roller coaster.

To add to the fun of the project he was also asked to animate it, for which he hired Ashley Amoeba.

For those interested, prints are available directly from the MTA.
