A New Cast of Characters for Toronto’s Neighborhood Watch Signs

Where some may have seen only an old sign faded after years of sun exposure, Toronto artist Andrew Lamb (@dcmism on Instagram) saw an opportunity. Since 2012, Andrew has treated his hometown’s weathered Neighborhood Watch signs as a blank canvas, adorning them with whimsical figures from pop culture.

“My work tends to deal with altering urban infrastructure in a playful manner,” explains Andrew. In this case, it’s about repurposing municipal infrastructure to “invoke nostalgic happy memories” with the help of characters as diverse as Zelda, Bruce Lee and the Planeteers.

What are the keys to success when modifying a sign? “Use a laser printer, not an inkjet,” says Andrew, “and don’t fall off your ladder.”
