"I was born to people who didnít want me and so they gave me away. But I guess the people they gave me to didnít want me either. No one wanted me. Thatís why I ended up on the streets alone and uneducated. I couldnít read or write. I didnít know anything and the
whole world knew it."
With heavy hearts we say goodbye to beloved artist and storyteller Anthony Horton, who spent the greater part of his life living and surviving in the secret underground tributaries of the NYC subway system. In 2005, he met Youme Landowne, another artist, there at one of the subway stops and they began to talk. They rode downtown and uptown and downtown again, discussing art and life, and they decided to begin working together. They decided to write a book which would tell Tonyís story. In 2008, we were lucky enough to publish his graphic, Pitch Black - Don't Be Skerd, the story of Anthony's life underground.
