since you were featured on woostercollective, prepare to be seen!!! also, you list radiohead and other cool bands as bands you're interested in, but no sigur ros?!?!

This is a clever design. I've seen plenty of other types. There's one on my campus with a bowtie. Also, they use hands on the signs here to denote "DO NOT WALK", so people have made various signs by taping over fingers... "rock on", "live long and prosper" from Star Trek or the classic middle finger.

I didn't know I'd been featured there until I read the comments. I'm really flattered and also happy that people are interested in Icelandic street art.

I must have forgotten to put Sigur Rós on the list of my favorite bands but I'm going to do it right now. I recommend the album Ágætis Byrjun, one of my favorites.

Thanks for the support!

I was happy to see another altered walk sign, challenging the male norm. I also saw in Coppenhagen a couple of years ago someone had actually scratched into the black paint on the walking man and given him curves. It made me happy to see us ladies now being represented in the public realm. We need more of it. Lets do a campaign. 50% of these signs to be femaled by 2008!

seems a bit stupid, you have turned a gender neutral stick man into something gender specific
