    val kilmer is a familiar friendly face in toronto these days, and thats because fans/detractors/accomplices/misanthropes have been glueing photocopied images of his face all over the city for the past year.

    & tagging his name in cute 60's bubble letters.

    this revolutionary graffiti proves to fly-guy taggers that you dont need to go to the trouble of learning how to write all that fancy lettering to get some attention. you dont even need to write at all infact. all you need is a photocopier and a head. ready-made graffiti has arrived!

    our logo is similarly irresistably taggable, and equally deserving of the spotlight. and we'd like to do the same thing. but we're afraid they might know who did it -bruce mau, obviously-, (al) & (d) that could start massive trouble.

      There is a gorgeous spray-paint stencil of Val on the SW corner of 17th and Kater in Philadelphia - or used to be gorgeous, it's been worn away a bit by snow and pedestrian traffic.

      And you can buy a T-shirt with Val's image and the caption "I'm your huckleberry" on Bob Boze Bell's website (too tired to find the link - late night).

      In LA there seems to be stencils of Abraham Lincoln's head in many unexpected places. I'm glad old Abe keeps suck good company. = /
