This piece certainly portrays the sentiments of many of us caught in the 'rat race!' The photograph itself is captured quite nicely, the slow shutter-speed blur gives the effect of a 'rush' and headache. I like the way you have combined three pop-culture characters to create one figure, doing what these characters normally do; ditching the norm and creating their own adventures.

Whilst I think this 'Beta' version of paper and drawing works well with the underground setting of the train, my personal preference was for your original Pencil v. Camera styles of intricate pencil sketching. I think it gave a bigger impact between the world of photography and the world of imagination.

Personal preference aside, I once again love the simple concepts that you represent so fantastically in these artworks, and will again applaud you on your fantastic imagination that I envy greatly.

Sorry, haven't been able to write this critique because it's been several weeks since my last critique on your artwork.
Now let's get down to business.

Vision: The subway provides a very good place for for taking pictures. The drawing of a monkey fits very well with the picture. Looks more like action to me. This picture is way beyond imagination, but it makes more sense.
Originality and Technique: You have a very great way of taking fantasy shots. This, by the way, is much experimental.
Impact: I am still very impressed about this picture. Still minimalism, and just fantastic.

Well done.

The first thing that comes to my mind was the song "Stadtaffe" from Peter Fox. Stadtaffe means Citymonkey.

Me: I really like this, I'd thought the monkey be the boss or is the monkey the employee merely controlled by a gorilla? Now you got my brain going! ;D I can imagine much more than this image now.

I love this picture and the fact that he is a monkey suits this picture so well! I think a lot of people behave like monkeys/animals when leaving/entering the subway, especially during rush hour. :)
