Scan for Street Art

No Surrender!

If you are like me, you love to make street art but hate the hassle of being arrested.

Seriously, I've got better things to do on a Saturday night than sit in a jail cell and besides, I really don't look good in an orange jump suit. Just not my color.

But what's a boy to do?

The above QR scan links to the photo of the street art below

The answer: Scan for Street Art.

Utilizing the new QR scan technology, it's possible to let people see your street art without it really being there!

Here is how it works.

Step 1: Create some temporary street art, photograph it and then take it down right away before the po po show up.

Step 2: Upload photos of your street art to a website or blog.

Step 3: Generate a QR scan of the URL of your street art photo.

Step 4: Post flyers of your scan on telephone poles or poster friendly places. Rule of thumb, if little Johnny can post his "Lost Dog" flyer or grandma can post her "Garage Sale" sign, you're in good shape.

Step 5: Wait for the rest of the world to catch up with QR scanning.

Happy Street Arting!

What a wonderful idea! Now where were you when I was tagging trains in NYC in 70s?! Back then I was SPICE 179th; Community Service was my middle name when my Dad and the "Po Po" were done with me! lol!
