Offbeat Homies Weekend Challenge: anthropomorphize ALL THE THINGS!

Inspired by Sandrine Estrade Boulet's awesome street-art inspired work, this weekend's Offbeat Homies Weekend Challenge is to go out into your neighborhood and anthropomorphize some shit, and then take hilarious photos of it!

This could be as easy as eye-bombing or as complex as using chalk, yarn, or other mixed materials to create a temporary humanoid form out of a found object or natural element.

Here's how to play…

Print and post street flyers in your neighborhood

All the cool kids are talking about 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 in 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. I will give you three easy starter projects you can just Save As, Print, and post — or grab a magic marker and a sheet of A5 and replicate.
