Mad Men Falling Man Street Posters Humorously Altered
You may remember we recently posted about the stark minimalistic “falling man” poster that was created to promote the upcoming fifth season of Mad Men.

Walls Notebook is a notebook / sketchbook that features 80 pictures of “clean” NYC walls instead of blank pages. Write, draw, paste, or doodle on these inspirational backdrops. You’ll be one step closer to being the street artist you’ve always wanted to be … minus the jail time.
Fun idea. Filed under: drawing on the walls. (Thanks, Paige!)

"No Standing, Only Dancing" by Rennie Ellis, 1974
Australian photographer Rennie Ellis (1940-2003), manifested his lust for life in the incredibly raw and titillating images of ’70s & ’8os that perfectly capture the heyday of Rock ‘n’ Roll rebellion, sexual experimentation, high fashion & tomfoolery.
Don’t miss the pic of Bon Scott & Angus Young.
