Birmingham, England artist Joe Butcher (AKA October Jones) had the great idea of hiding inspirational, encouraging motivational post-its inside public transport tray tables throughout the summer and autumn of 2012.

I know what you’re thinking: “2012? THAT WAS AGES AGO!” Well true, it has taken a while for Joe’s work to catch on but his doodles are gaining a lot of attention on Reddit at the moment.

Each drawing features “Peppy” the cartoon cat and some amazing inspiration that would make even the grumpiest morning commuter smile. Check out more of the drawings that were tweeted back in 2012 and be sure to make someone else’s day better!
