ICHABOD - X
Every rail fan and graffiti artist in North America will recognize the X from the logo of a CSX hopper flanking the imagery made famous by ICHABOD. Notoriously prolific with over 5500 freight cars to his name – or at least his moniker – this piece of steel spoke loudly and clearly to the master.
A well-known scourge on the railcar livery as far as CSX is concerned, the irony of this composition runs deep. The poster sized steel panel almost comes across as a wanted poster. But we feel it’s akin to ICHABOD saying “You can try to X me out, but oh no, my friend, I am not going anywhere – in fact, I am riding everywhere you go.”
“You can try to X me out, but oh no, my friend, I am not going anywhere – in fact I am riding everywhere you go.”
The hollow-eyed skeleton with a raised finger is part of the iconic ICH! masterpieces seen on countless CSX, UP, BNSF Norfolk Southern and other railcars. For those who know ICHABOD’s work, you will instantly recognize this one.
We framed the panel with steel. It comes with specially fashioned mounting brackets to make it easy to mount and display in your home or office – if you dare!
