Animals in the Underground

December 3, 2009

In 1988, Paul Middlewick started noticing strange things in the London Underground… ANIMALS. Using tubelines, stations, and junctions, Middlewick created a “connect the dot” sort of illustration. Middlewick’s first discovery was the elephant, but as of this moment, he has identified 34 different creatures so far. These outlines aren’t forced or juvenile either, they are actually very uniform, almost like letters in a certain typeface. It’s refreshing to see something so free and childlike in a strict and unyielding train route. Just another reminder that you can find fun in anything.
