Really nice coffee mugs here. I like the dog one best. At the Wedge Coop in Uptown #Minneapolis.

These awesomely altered neighborhood watch signs are the handiwork of Toronto, Ontario-based artist Andrew Lamb. The nondescript street signs have been posted around Toronto for years, which meant that everyone was so used to them they just blended into the scenery.

Andrew Lamb tells CBC:

I walked by and thought those signs would be much better with a superhero up there. The first one was a splash page — a common thing in comic books, a bunch of superheros popping out at you. Then came Batman and Robin, RoboCop, Beverly Hills Cop, and then it snowballed.

Lamb’s superheroic enhancements are sure to get the signs noticed by upstanding citizens and potential criminals alike. Heck, we’d probably think twice about simply jaywalking if we thought Mister Rogers was watching.

Follow Andrew Lamb’s on Instagram to check out many more of his fantastically altered signs.

Mugshot Monday -  “Deneen Pottery” Norg Tankard mug with Empty Rowboat IPA by Lake Monster Brewing — with special guest, Chris Henderson!
I’m not drinking coffee in this photo.
Deneen Pottery was kind enough to send me two mugs recently — one for really good coffee and one for really good beer. So today Chris and I indulged in a tasty IPA brewed by the newest Minnesota microbrewery and tap room, Lake Monster Brewery! They’re getting busy building out a new space in the Vandalia Tower complex located at 550 Vandalia Street in Saint Paul (Read all about it on MN Beer Activists). Congrats!
Chris and I go way back — we worked at City Pages together. Recently he founded CYCL — the creative arm of FRWD — and as luck would have it, needed a guy like me on his team. And now we’re redesigning and launching (soon!) the new Lake Monster website. The new site is going to be fabulous.
Cheers!

Mugshot Monday -  “Disappearing Dinosaurs” coffee mug with Guatemalan Dark Roast by Peace Coffee
You can totally tell I’m drinking HOT HOT coffee in this coffee mug. It’s one of those heat sensitive mugs — the dino-skin magically melted away when I poured my cup of coffee this morning revealing the dinosaur skeletons!
Thanks to my new coworker Linz Kieffer for lending me this coffee mug! Because it’s awesome. (Btw, that’s Sue behind me if you were wondering.)
Here’s an animated GIF of the Disappearing Dinosaurs. I may need to buy my own!
