A preliminary study for “The Commuter" from The Complete Short Stories by Philip K. Dick, published by The Folio Society. This unused study is based on the following line from the story: “Across the aisle a tall man in a light coat got to his feet, put his hat on, and moved rapidly toward the door.” In this concept, I wanted to focus on the train’s doorway as a threshold between possible realities, or between the known and unknown.
