Cool interpretation of the restaurant “choking victim” poster.

Restaurants in NY are required to hang a poster on how to assist people that are choking. Up to yesterday, the only version I’ve seen of this is the garish yellow and red poster.

Usual Poster

At Txikito last night, I was struck by a stylish and entertaining version of this poster done in blue ink below. I asked the bartender about it, and, surprisingly, he knew the name of the artist who did it, Alex Holden. I love the panel that’s the second from the right on the bottom with a guy getting the Heimlich and having a fish pop out of his mouth and his hat popping off his head.

NY Mag also covered the poster.
