Somebunny's Got Art Skillz

My friend & fellow DC blogger Plight of the Pumpernickel wrote today about "Trends in DC Street Art," using a photo I took circa Easter as a launching pad for a discussion of the next big thing in urban art: Peeps!

So far, I've seen one (Dupont Circle):


And she's seen one (Cleveland Park):


But it appears that as of Sunday, at the latest, our Peeps artist has branched out & become more gender inclusive, as seen on U Street:


Loves it.

So when do the chicks arrive? The yellow Peeps, or the green ones? Oh, yeah, & where are the
red ones? The ones sold exclusively at Target? Those red ones freak me out the most. Bloody Easter marshmallows? No, thanks:


Anyway. Best urban art. Ever? Discuss.

I think that is so cool!!! I love different types of street art, there are so many different forms of expression here in NYC! And also, the blood red peeps scare the crap out of me too! I'm really only a fan of the yellow. :)

Peep art...hehehe, pretty funny... I think somebody should design something of 4 peeps dressed in KISS make-up and costumes!

This is great! I don't know why I'm surprised -- I'd be less so if it'd appeared in Japan (due to their obsession with all things cute & furry). Neat!
