While visiting downtown Fort Worth, it struck me how many kitschy signs adorned the storefronts and bars along the way. With an overarching cowboy theme (it’s a cowtown), there still was room for a little variety, such that even regional chain restaurants pulled out the stops to throw up some neon.

I first saw the work of Jason Hackenworth when attending the Coachella Music Festival in 2007.
I was standing in a throng of people, waiting in a ridiculously long line for water in 105 degree heat, trying to stay lucid. I was familiar with the fair-like performance artists, the installation pieces and the crazy body-art-laden festival attendees, but I wasn’t quite prepared for walking balloon art, stalking through the crowd on the legs of dancers.
Bikes, built beautifully.
Fast Boy Cycles, out of NYC, is producing some custom built bikes that don’t just look like a designer’s dream mode of transportation, they show like they should be framed on a wall. The company, run by Ezra, is a small cycle development firm that revels in custom orders.
In addition to the main site location they also have an affiliated fender site, Fast Boy Fenders, for those cyclists interested in a touch of class for their non-custom models. All – in – all a sleek little package indeed.
Invader, an anonymous french street artist, has been planting these little pieces of culture in public places for years. The above video shows how one man, armed with only his love of pixels and pop culture, has created masterpiece works from an everyday kid’s toy.
