New York-based artist Ben Rubin has turned his morning commute on NYC subway trains into an awesome art project. For his ongoing Subway Doodle series Rubin uses his iPad to photograph fellow travelers on the subway platforms and inside the cars. Then, still using his iPad, he enhances the photos by drawing all sorts of blue monsters and other fantastic creatures interacting with the people and locations in the photos.

“I started sketching on my iPad during my commute just to pass the time. One day I took a picture with my iPad on the train and drew over the picture,” he explained to Odyssey. “It was fun so I did another. And another. Then it just kind of continued from there.”

All of the ads in London’s Clapham Common Tube station were once replaced with cat pictures. Funded by CATS (the Citizens Advertising Takeover Service), the stunt was intended to “inspire people to think differently about the world and realize they have the power to change it.” Source
