A few times a week, I walk by a wall on my way to work. It’s in a constant state of being repainted, sometimes white, sometimes with interesting messages.
Basically, with graffiti.
The thing is, the graffiti is always prettier and more entertaining than a blank white wall. I once passed a scrawled message on my way into the office that read “Just quit already.” In response, someone had written “I wish I could.”
You see the same thing in bathroom stalls, scratched into desktops and sometimes written inside library books. There’s something interesting, anthropological about these kinds of interactions.
I liked this image with Mr. Burns- homage to the Simpsons on the streets that many of its characters are named after.
