However, when I saw Sadiq Khan had posted on Twitter the new and controversial Piccadilly Line artwork designed by renowned artist David Hockney, I just had to create my own. Hockney's creation saw the regular roundel of red circle and blue banner replaced with an imperfect yellow circle, slightly slanted purple banner and 'Piccadilly Circus' with the S drooping below. Many said it looked like the work of a child. I thought to myself, 'I can at the very least match that.' So without much thought I went ahead and designed my own Tube roundels using Microsoft Paint and had loads of fun doing it. Here are four of the best I picked out from my collection and relatively simple thought process behind each one.

It is the central hub of London with six Underground lines and many more trains departing from there to other UK cities. It's the busiest of all stations even when it was lockdown so I thought it deserved some classic elements included in its redesign. It's a beautiful sight ain't it (Image: Reemul Balla) I kept to the traditional colours out of respect and only slanted the banner a tad for that artistic vibe. Admittedly my pen work resembled someone writing with their weak hand but managed to fit the long station name within the boundaries. If you haven't figured out the pun yet with the angry stick man...there is no hope for humanity. Baker Street On the Bakerloo and Jubilee lines, Baker Street is one of those ancient sounding stations that could've existed in the 1500s.

. Home to the one and only Sherlock Holmes, the roundel design maybe should've been shrouded in a bit more mystery than what I went for. But in true Hockney style, I stuck to what I felt was appropriate.
I mean it was jumping out from the name right?

It's pretty self-evident what the theme is for this one. A few loaves of bread line the top, and some toast the bottom with a public to use image of Greggs adorning the banner and Baker Street had left some crumbs behind. There are a few bakers near the station including Wenzel's and Paul, but the nearest Greggs is unfortunately closer to Great Portland Street.

Waterloo Here we have another iconic station that everyone from kids to tourists have heard of. London Waterloo opened in the mid 19th century replacing Nine Elms station and has become a landmark ever since. It features in a few films like Terminus and in The Kinks' song Waterloo Sunset. Justice has to be done to its design then!
The Londoners drank the 'T'

There is some thought behind this one. The Waterloo and City line resembles the lime and aqua colours so I plumped for them. There is a huge debate as to whether the 'T' is pronounced in water so I chose the more unpopular option and decided it wouldn't be for this station. Again the banner abounds with puns as a shoddily drawn toilet overflows with water. Go figure.
