Print and post street flyers in your neighborhood #Do It Yourself#street art November 29 | Cat Rocketship We are obsessed with street art. Big-name street artists have been in hugely successful art films (okay, so as successful as art films can get) and have brands. But it's so exciting because anyone can do it. There is almost no barrier to entry. You don't have to buy paints, you don't have to get in trouble, you don't have to have an amazing idea, and nobody even needs to know who you are. And it's really, really, really fun to make something — even if all you did was trace a skull on a sticker and slap it on a fire hydrant. Making things is totally an addictive cycle. So if you are among the uninitiated, consider me your street art candy man. The well of street art is deep, and goes into much more involved, expensive, and/or dangerous places, but today I've got three easy starter projects you can just Save As, Print, and post — or grab a magic marker and a sheet of A5 and replicate. This sign is also available as a simple Photoshop template So you can make it say whatever you'd like. Got one saved in your documents? Make one today? Swap your flyers in the comments. If you liked this, you should also read this post about some other guerrilla art ideas. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

I get so excited about new ways to interact with random strangers. For a brief moment you pop into their lives in an unusual way. 2 agree Reply Around where I used to live in Santa Cruz, there was a stop sign to which someone had added a "HAMMER TIME!" sticker on the bottom half. It made me laugh all the time. Reply I remember that sticker! God, I miss Santa Cruz sometimes. Right after I moved (back down to Orange County) I saw a sign that said "End Landscaping" and for a second I was excited, thinking "hell, yeah, end landscaping! Grow food or restore native vegetation instead! Awesome!" Then I realized it was just a highway sign advising me of the end of the landscaped area. Oh. 2 agree Reply Every time I see the Lionel Richie one I crack up but OH SHIT the Black Knight!!!! Thanks for making me crack my ass up. Reply I tracked down the Lionel Richie one yesterday and hung it in the break room at work. It was a great destroyer of crabbiness. 1 agrees Reply Well I know what I'm doing to the work bulletin board tomorrow before the rest of the office shows up. Reply Loooove this! I just moved back to my itty bitty hometown after 5 years in San Francisco, so now I'm totally inspired to shake this place up!!! Reply I saw one that said FREE CHICKEN STRIPS, and each strip had a picture of a chicken on it. 🙂 2 agree Reply My favourite still is and always will be the Zelda one – It's Dangerous to go Alone, Take One of These! http://www.obviouswinner.com/obvwin/2011/7/20/its-dangerous-to-go-alone-take-one-of-these-mini-paper-sword.html 1 agrees Reply My sister posted Wanted flyers of Waldo all over our town haha.
