Street Art

I love pretty much everything Improv Everywhere does, but their latest project especially resonates with me because they eerily read my mind and made a video of my thoughts.  Posing as NYC’s Department of Transportation, they set up a “Tourist Lane” (slow lane) and a “New Yorker Lane” (fast lane) on a sidewalk in Manhattan and directed pedestrians accordingly.  As a fast-walking New Yorker, I am thrilled that they did this.


I normally post about other people’s projects, but I thought I might sneak in a post about a new one of mine.  I have just started a blog called Summer in SoMa, where I post my photographs and hand-drawn cartoons documenting my summer in San Francisco.

I’m surprised it took me this long to discover the video for Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing,” which was released several months ago.  The video features Chris Martin (whose colorful superhero outfit is like something out of Wee Sing in Sillyville) in the midst of  an imaginative adventure through a vibrant chalk world.  And it’s stop motion!

The full video is posted on the Coldplay website.  Here is the trailer:
