Pac-Man-like graphics pop up on CTA emergency signs
Here's good one from my friend Eric:
"The CTA "In Case of Emergency" MacPaint-like graphics have always seemed a bit too large or busy to take in easily at a glance. Maybe like some others, I tend to tune them out.
So coming home last week, it took me awhile before clueing in to the guerrilla pop art going on here:
Pretty well done!
I'm especially fond of the Pac Man chase:
Not long after Eric sent me the above cell phone photos by email, Mike sent me this missive:
"Today on the train somebody wanted to take a picture of the cartoonish emergency exit instructions. There are four pictures, but someone has cleverly (in the same style as the originals ) replaced three of the pictures.
"One picture shows the train flooded with water, the other (2nd from top) shows the figure crawling on the floor and one figure emerging from the box next to the door and the lower picture shows a giant hand shaking the train as it approaches the platform. This was done on one car only, however, cleverly done."
OK, you bad bad train defacers out there. Let's fess up and tell me what you're up to. Got a Flickr site with more photos?
