Creative artist, who lives in Brooklyn, New York, Ben Rubin found good way to enjoy daily trips in subway. He uses his iPad to add funny monsters and more to the subway scene and beyond.
“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. It was fun, so I did another. And another. Then it just kind of continued from there.”
“One of the doodles had a silly creature emerging from the window of an NYPD police car. I received a message from a woman who said,’That’s my husband’s patrol car!. She asked for a hi-res copy of the image so that she could have it printed and framed for him as a gift.”
“I went through a phase where I challenged myself to create one doodle a day. The pressure to keep up started to take the fun out of it so I slowed down.”
“People always ask why the creatures I draw are blue. The simple truth is that I don’t want my doodles to be interpreted as criticism or representation of any particular race or nationality. My doodles simply reflect the peculiar universal truths about humans.”
