Your balls are more beautiful than you think.

In an unlikely advertisement for Dove, a forensic artist draws men's testicles as they see themselves and then again as others see them. [sfw]

bill stickers will be prosecuted.

On April 25th, 2009, over 50 artists and 26 whitewashers spread out over lower Manhattan as part Jordan Seiler's "New York Street Advertising Takeover". Over 120 illegal billboards were whitewashed, then turned into "personal pieces of art." One person was arrested. More pictures. via

Tom Judd's Everyday

Tom Judd's Everyday - "365 PAGES AGO I HAD A VERY SILLY IDEA. Draw a page everyday for one year. Each day I spent around 1 hour on the page, sometimes more, sometimes less. There was never any planning or preparation, I would just go at it whenever I had a spare moment in my day and had something I needed to write or draw. Some of the drawings are observational and some are just plain weird. Monsters and things seem to crop up a lot (robots too)."

Also of note...in 2006, Tom Judd is undertaking a "Once A Week: Art vs Advertising" project...
