Local artists in the city have created a number of humorous road signs as part of an outdoor art project. I love these two!
This first sign, “Duck” is by a friend, Hitoko Okada, a fashion artist. In this piece, she uses Kaomoji, the Japanese smileys and emoticons. Hitoko describes that by pairing “duck” on a caution sign, it is a “humorous traffic warning for overhead hazards like falling glass from poorly constructed condos” and other poorly constructed projects. “In general a warning for oncoming hazards on life’s unpredictable path when the city and corporation keep passing up the response-ability.” For more on Hitoko’s art, visit her website, Hitokoo.com.
