Large, sometimes-hairy, usually-blue creatures live on and under the streets of New York according to one local artist.
Ben Rubin takes pictures with his iPad and then applies his imagination in his ongoing art series called Subway Doodle.
“I started sketching on my iPad during my commute just to pass the time,” Rubin told Odyssey. “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.”
The project, which features odd characters interacting with people and/or their surroundings in intriguing ways, has been alive for years now and Rubin updates the Instagram often.
