It’s easy to overlook the overground bits of the Underground, but Luis Gómez Feliu has turned them into art

When you get down to it, most of the tube looks pretty similar. But above ground, it’s a different story. The network’s 270 stations are like a potted history of London’s architecture, from Victorian grandeur and art deco through to glassy modernism.

Inspired by that legacy, illustrator Luis Gómez Feliu drew a whopping 82 Underground stations as part of a commission for finance site Pound Place. His sketches are sure to make you see your morning commute with (slightly) fresher eyes.
