Photo: The Granville Street Deadline

Street art - here I mean literal street art, art's that on the actual street or at the very least the sidewalk - isn't uncommon in Vancouver, but since a lot of it seems to be done with chalk, it's also pretty ephemeral in rainy Vancouver winters. Some creators are smarter about this, choosing a medium that holds up more to water; case in point, an easily-missable work that I came across on Granville, just north of Georgia, a few weeks ago.

Will it stop people from jaywalking? No. But one of these days someone's not going to look when they're strolling across against the light, and they're going to get annihilated by a trolleybus. They're quiet; they can sneak up on you.
