Artist Grows Up and Recreates His Own Drawings 2 Decades Later

Posted by on August 15th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

I Can Has Sidewalk Art

Posted by on April 27th, 2011, under SNAPSHOTS

The same day I ran across “I Heart Poop”, I stumbled on this little zen proverb of literalness. Someone has a deathgrip on the obvious and I love it. It’s a post-modern, retro, neo-classical, avant-garde comment on sidewalk art… …I wanted to write, ” I know”, next to it.
