Since that post, I noticed two additional "moustache" works on the Manhattan bound Vernon-Jackson platform; but am not sure how long they've been there since I don't often make it down this far on the platform before the subway arrives -
However, it's been weeks since my "Bitch Cakes" poster and he has not made any contact since then.
To pacify myself, I theorized that the above posters must have been modified around the time he established contact with me via his posters and I just hadn't noticed.
But if that were true, then how would I explain this???
Remember this poster? The one where he wrote "Moustache Man <3 Bitchcakes"?
Well not only has he not responded to my "*Bitchcakes <3s you too!" but when a new poster appeared adjacent to it, he drew a *new* moustache on it - while completely ignoring my poster!
So that means he was there - in that location. He must have seen what I wrote, but completely ignored me.
I'll be honest, it hurt. :(
But the more I think about it, I think it's for the best that he ignore me and not make any contact. I have a feeling if I met the Moustache Artist it would - at best - take the mystery away and at worst, what if I were disappointed? I think some things are better off remaining a mystery.
Besides, at this point, I have a feeling he might abandon his moustache premise because a friend of mine told me she saw a bad copycat "goatee" in another station and then I saw this (see below) in Vernon-Jackson. While mildly amusing, it's obviously not his work, but someone trying to make it look like it is:
Anyway, whatever you decide to do, Moustache Man, I wish you the best. It was fun while it lasted and I was thrilled to be a part of your art. In the immortal words of Tim Gunn, our savior, "Carry on!"
