Cool. An artist called Simon Patterson has also done this with engineers, philosophers, footballers, comedians, saints, artists, etc. The work is called The Great Bear.

I have The Great Bear on my wall, it's cool, but it doesn't incorporate the Footballers (Jubilee) line extension. :)

Simple arithmatic is how it works. If you put the same sign on 9, 18, 27, etc. there is no guess work to it.
