The Medium Must Match the Message

An awesome street art hot spot in Silverlake.  At the bottom of Bamp's giant mug shot is a tiny 8.5x11 piece of paper that says 'Don't you dare for one more second surround yourself with people who are not aware of the greatness that you are'.

Love the quote.  And another good one (paraphrased) says that 'We judge other people by their actions, but we estimate ourselves by our potential'.  No doubt.  Its true.  We judge others based on what we see, but we judge ourselves based on what we know we are capable of.

Think the tiny paster is from Leopoldo.  No doubt there is greatness, and we look forward to seeing more of it on the streets.  But the medium should match the message, and if it were presented differently, people will respond to it differently.  Anyway, dig the concept and stay up!

Joined by street art from Bamp, Sonay, Bandit, Fame, Phylo TSF, and more, like the half covered BleepBloop still says.
