Artist Adds Adorable Monsters To Normal Moments From New York City Subways

It must be interesting to have so many interesting little monster friends living in your head and being able to bring them to life through your art. And I’m not talking about the bad monsters in our head, the ones I mean are actually really cute.

Ben Rubin is a New York City-based artist who takes inspiration from the subways of NYC to create fantastical situations. Taking normal, everyday scenes you would see on your daily subway commute, Rubin adds his own twist to them in the most amazing way: he just adds mischevious and adorable little monsters. You’d be surprised to see how interesting an everyday scene will turn out to be if there’s an imaginary creature lurking about.

He posts his art to social media, where he goes by the name of Subway Doodle, and he’s amassed quite the following, with over 163k followers on Instagram who enjoy watching his work. And for good reason! If you’re not familiar with it, scroll down to see some of his drawings.
