These little figures seem to pop up all over the city.
If you've lived here long enough and keep your eyes peeled you'll see them around. I've noticed them mostly either painted on the street in crosswalks or affixed with some odd tape/paint sort of stuff directly to the pavement. This is the first one I've seen at eye level. It is glued to one of those strange electrical boxes that are on a lot of street corners. It's made out of some paper/plastic like material and is glued down really, really good.
This is quickly becoming my favorite blog. It's great and totally gets right to the point.
