Richard Ankrom’s act of guerrilla public service – adding a much-needed sign to the 110 freeway that was so real-looking that it fooled CalTrans – is one of the coolest things you’re likely to read/watch all week.  He’s like Shepard Fairey with a purpose, a Banksy of Public Works; providing valuable civic functionality through reclamation of public spaces.

And it’s a good thing people like this are out there in California, since the state probably can’t afford to buy or install its own signs much longer.
