    if you dont know about this guy , yer missing out .

    On August 5th 2001, artist richard ankrom installed an interstate 5 shield and North directional sign on the 110 Northbound indicating the I-5 North transition.

    For two years, the artist planned, documented and prepared for this project, a piece that has been seen by more than 150,000 motorists per day on the 110 Northbound freeway, near 3rd Street in Downtown Los Angeles. The artist disguised himself as a state employee taking a direct approach to correcting the lack of an adequate guide sign on the California freeway system.

    [url=http://www.ankrom.org]ankrom[/url] calls this a " guerilla public works project "

    i [url=http://www.mishaco.com/archive.htm]interviewed ankrom[/url] a few months ago , and even though he doesnt see himself as a " graffiti artist " , he is the definition of good graffiti .

    There was a thread about this in Channel Zero a while ago.

    Either way, it's interesting and a good show of dedication.
