Graffiti + Design = Awesome

February25

A while back there was a sudden surge in the popularity of graffiti, you started seeing it everywhere. This wasnt exactly a good thing and the result was more often than not bad. However there were a few designers that got it right and the result was great. Jimbotron was one of these artists. The combination of photography, illustraation and simulated graffiti effects are great. You can check out his site at jimbotron.com.

Now I have never really gotten the passion behind the Star Wars phenomenom, some of the later ones where okay but on the whole, meh, it didnt really do it for me. However this thing is pretty freaking awesome and if the could bring out a mini mp3 version, I would definately have one on my desk.
