subway art & free printable

4/13/13 update. I replaced the star wars jpeg with a higher resolution but I'm not sure it'll blow-up to a larger size.

Apparently, subway art is pretty big right now. I keep seeing it on all the blogs, Etsy, everywhere. I decided I'd try it out and see what I thought. I started with this boys' Star Wars themed one. My boys are Star Wars crazy. My two year old often picks out Attack of the Clones or A New Hope to watch. My 7 year old got Revenge of the Sith for Christmas and hasn't stopped watching it since.

You are free to print this out for your home use, it should be a large enough file. If it's not, I'm sorry, I tried Right click on it and 'save picture as,' save it and upload to Costco or wherever.

If I find you selling it on Etsy though I'll sue your pants off. :-)



I also made a family one. I have all our first and middle names. (My first son and I share middle names, which is why it's on there twice.) My kids both have the year they were born next to their names. January 2001 was when my husband and I were married. I also added the three places we've lived since we've been married.


I'm not sure that I would ever have this printed to hang in my home. I don't know that I'm completely into it. But I may have the Star Wars one printed for the play room or the boys' bedroom.


Is this considered subway art? Is there a technical definition of subway art? I might hang something like this in my kitchen to remind me that, while it's hard not to yell and scream at obnoxious, fighting boys, I can do hard things.

What would your subway art say? Are you into it?

  1. I dunno the definition of "subway art" but I think THIS is adorable. What a great idea. I'm going to ponder what mine (ours) should say!
