No Smoking

August 13, 2007

The ordinance has survived several challenges, and will soon be statewide.  I have no political point to make here, except this is one of the more visually interesting “No Smoking” signs I’ve ever seen and it looks surreal when placed on both the inside and outside of the door.

The expression on the guy’s face seems to say; “There are few pleasures to be had, but my pipe and the long, solitary walk back to the outpost where I stand vigil.”

    Somehow I think this is a van Gogh.  It’s a very creative use of the artwork.

    Is it the bandage around the ear that makes you think it’s van Gogh?

    I’m pretty sure it’s a stylization of this self-portrait.

    That sign makes me wish someone would go around turning all common signs into art—it would spruce up the country.
