Commuter Juxtaposes Newspaper to Unsuspecting Travelers

Traveling to work everyday can be a bore so one commuter took matters into his own hands and created a fun little activity for himself. Instead of simply reading a newspaper amidst a crowd of people on the same mundane route to work as him, the anonymous straphanger decided to juxtapose their bodies with faces of celebrities, animals, and cartoons found on newspapers.

By folding up his morning reading material, the elusive shutterbug has been able to create split full-body portraits by snapping shots of unsuspecting commuters with superimposed photos of anyone from Queen Elizabeth to Yoda over their heads. In some instances, the anonymous daily traveler even switches things up and replaces the lower half of unwary subjects with a pair of shapely legs from advertisements. As of this moment, the creative commuter remains unidentified.
