Londonist Underground: Weird Creatures

Continuing our artistic celebration of the London Underground's 150th anniversary.

We asked you to imagine what lurks beneath this great city, and send in a picture. Tanya Meditzky responded with this surreal cutaway, in which a typical London street is underpinned by a precarious troupe of creatures. It's like an Hieronymus Bosch vision of hell, only with the assorted imps and beasties performing a more useful task than devouring souls. Wonderful stuff.

Want to have a go? Just draw, paint, collage or photograph your own scene from underground London. It might be something fantastical like a white-knuckle Tube line, or something factual such as a favourite Tube station. Send entries to before the end of the month. We're hoping to display the best entries in an exhibition.
