Artist Draws NYC Subway Monsters While Riding the Train


Sometimes it’s hard not to think of your fellow subway passengers as monsters when the dude next to you manspreads his way into your seat and the noisy goings-on are totally overwhelming. Artist Ben Rubin, who we discovered on Weburbanist, understands your feels and wants to cast a little humor on the eternal subway ride through New York City with his monsters series. Rubin works on a portable iPad device using the Procreate app, joining photos of subway passengers with wild-eyed creatures that look as nasty as the smells that emanate from sweltering tunnels below ground.
