Cartoon Tuesday

Cartoon Tuesday: Park-N-Abandon

2:54 PM PDT on May 5, 2009

Today's toon combo comes to us via the Times' By Design blog, where Allison Arieff has posted a paean to Steven M. Johnson, an inventor, author, cartoonist and former urban planner described by Arieff as "a sort of R. Crumb meets R. Buckminster Fuller." Many of Johnson's "whimsical musings" are transportation related, and at least one of them (which Johnson called the "Treadaround") has become reality.

As for auto abandonment zones and the bike vest (seen after the jump), we'll keep our eyes peeled.
