The Vine: November 13, 2009
I am hoping your savvy and knowledgeable Vine readers can help me find out about this little guy (picture at right). I took this pic, and another one on the mall in Washington DC, in front of the Capitol building. I took another one at the roundabout in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a friend sent me a pic from NYC at East Houston and Bleecker. I am trying to figure out what he is all about, but I don't even know what to put into Google Images to begin to get info.
Want info on my Mystery Man
I've never seen that guy. I don't think it's actually related to the Toynbee tiles, but it's probably a similar style of graffiti or culture jamming. You may want to Google a string of all the locations, and terms like "rocket" or "mystery man," and see if anyone on Flickr has posted a photo along with information.
