Super Dudes To The Rescue of the Beleaguered City. Member reactions:
Thanks. I started this off as an slam on the leadership in Baltimore, decided to leave that and go with absurdity - these guys as heroes in this context was funny to me. And isn't everyone worried about the smelt population of Southern California.
Photoshop this image of city stork (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: dressing up this city stork, merging the stork with some other animals or objects, putting the city stork into some new environment, using this city stork image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
Many thanks to Lieselot De Wulf and
Stock Exchange for providing the source photo.
Traffic-signal boxes in Stamford, Conn are getting a facelift from the local urban artists, who are tired of seeing them as plain boxes. And it's not graffitti as you may think, it's a realistic art which blends traffic-signal boxes with surroundings. About 50 of the city’s 190 boxes, once covered with graffiti, are now suitable for framing, and many echo the surroundings.
In this contest you are asked to give artistic paint jobs to city structures (we will allow buildings, statues, monuments, bridges & arches) which will blend the structures with their surroundings.
Please refer to this paintjob of this traffic-signal box for a good example. Make sure your paintjobs are artistic paintjobs, rather than just pasted photos.
[ "A surge in violence made St. Louis the most dangerous city in the country, leading a trend of violent crimes rising much faster in the Midwest than in the rest of nation, according to an annual list. St. Louis has been on the list of 10 most dangerous U.S. cities for years". ]
If you've never been to St. Louis, now is not a good time to visit. It received the title of most dangerous US city this year, thanks to all hard working criminals who work 24/7 to make the city famous. The center of St. Louis features 630-foot-tall stainless-steel arch - a monument to the early pioneers who came west with nothing but their wagons, their guns, and their crimes. Visitors may ride to the top of the arch, where, high above the Mississippi River, they may see the panorama of crimes in the city.
In this contest you are asked to "criminalize" any St. Louis related theme (city part, event, people, products, etc.), and feature it as a tourism advertisement for St. Louis.
