Inspiration Sunday — Hand-Carved Billboard in San Francisco

It's Sunday, and we could all use some inspiration before we go back to work or school or whatever it is we do on the days when having a Bloody Mary with brunch is frowned upon.

Back from more summer travels — this time a week San Francisco for work. I didn't see this billboard while I was there, but I wish I had. Spending ten days hand carving a billboard is a cool way to both get some attention and make a point.

Once carved, I don't think you can really tell it's done by hand, which is too bad. But I think the point is that folks walking and driving through this busy intersection saw it being worked on for ten days, and I'm sure there was some local news coverage and general buzz around it. It's not as cool as the Green Works Reverse Graffiti Project (also done in San Francisco), but it's still nice.
