Fun, But Not Super Helpful, Street Signs Arrive in Manhattan

New, 2 comments

The purpose of most streets is to give pedestrians and/or drivers some important information, such as "STOP" or "NO PARKING." The purpose of a very small number of street signs, however, is to inform people that there is a vomiting cartoon man with a basketball for a head who is "STILL ILL." The creator of those signs (of which there are a number of equally nonsensical varieties) is artist Steve Powers, and he's bringing them to the actual streets of New York City for the city's Summer Street program. Not only are these signs weird and delightful, but people will no longer have to remember on their own that "[palm tree illustration] WANTED A PLACE TO CRASH."
