Unsuspecting Commuters, Transformed Into Cartoon Characters

UK-based illustrator Joe Butcher has found an ingenious way to stay entertained during his 35-minute commute. Through sticky notes and lots of imagination, Butcher transforms fellow passengers into funny cartoon and movie characters.

Although Butcher has been sharing his work via Twitter for the past two years, Imgur user GhostRobot recently compiled them all into a photo series titled, "how to pass time on the train." As you can see below, the collection features appearances by Mickey Mouse, Batman, and the Hulk. 

Although not all of us can be as talented as Butcher -- he also created the popular Tumblr-turned-book Text From Dog -- these doodles may be simple enough to try out on your next ride.
