The Love Bound Train

I first met Griffin Waldau and Ava Savitsky at a MoCCA event earlier this year. Their initial work got my attention right away as it’s inspired by Williamsburg, Brooklyn (a subject very close to my heart). Well they’ve now launched their full website The Love Bound Train, and what I love about it is that they’ve taken a true multi-medium approach to what they’re doing by creating graphic novels, designer toys, and cute related knick-knacks at the same time:

“This project started with an idea to create a set of collectible dolls to capture the personalities, sites, and sounds of a rapidly gentrifying brooklyn neighborhood complete with the less-than-reliable mass transportation that we must all deal with to get us to and from our homes, works, and playscapes. The Love Train itself is of course a reflection of the vehicle of choice in our neighborhood. The experiences and characters seen within have all been observed during the frequent ventures into the dark underbelly of this city.”
