Cute, but it's very unlikely that mammoths evolved from dinosaurs, or that we evolved from mammals. We're all cousins, really.

The Boston T (or the Red Line anyway) has an animated Target commercial that is mesmerizing (to a n00b such as myself anyway). ISTR a MeFi post about the company that created the concept. Doesn't seem like it would work too well outdoors.

PS: anyway anyway anyway

The first link is a dup from two days ago, but I guess we knew that?

I can't wait for the grafitto in which mankind invents bungie jumping. (Oh, make it up). Huh? Sorry, someone just said plethysmograph on TV in the next room.

Thanks heaps for this. I'm inspired, and not necessarily to recycle links from reddit.

Damn. I was hoping for a link about the evolution of grafitti form. But this was pretty cool anyway.

gwint, thanks for that excellent link. Really cool web design, using a sketchbook as its pages. I really like it. Looking among the nicely drawn pages for sequential graffiti I couldn't find any though. There are wonderful images and even some videos.

DU, those Target commercials where the graffiti come alive are really likeable creations.

What I liked about the two graffiti works linked above were that they were sequences, relying on going down the road to enjoy them. The action of travelling make the graffiti come alive as an artwork. I've never seen that kind of graffiti before...

*I meant couldn't find any other sequential graffiti than the one I linked.

I loved this nickyskye. Plus the entire body of work as gwint points out - awesome. I wish that person would come add some graffiti in my town.

The sequential art is great - I too like the idea of walking down the road beside that art - it certainly added interest and imagination to ugly, boring retaining wall.

Very different, but I just came upon this sequential art in Flickr: Human timeline
And the animated sequence made me recall this cute little caveman animation: First porno film.
