This kind of artistic reworking of the message on a stop sign isn't exactly new -- the trend dates back to 2007 or even earlier. But it seems to be having a second or third wind. The image above was recently created at the corner of Rosewood and Genesee in the Fairfax area, and as you can see it reads STOP: Hammertime. Other stop sign art reads STOP: Collaborate and listen, and the more sincere STOP: War.

Have you seen these in your neighborhood?
