A New Cast of Characters for Toronto’s Neighborhood Watch Signs

To see more of Andrew’s creative Neighborhood Watch modifications, follow @dcmism on Instagram.

Where some may have seen only an old sign faded after years of sun exposure, Toronto artist Andrew Lamb (@dcmism) saw an opportunity. Since 2012, Andrew has treated his hometown’s weathered Neighborhood Watch signs as a blank canvas, adorning them with whimsical figures from pop culture.

"My work tends to deal with altering urban infrastructure in a playful manner," explains Andrew. In this case, it’s about repurposing municipal infrastructure to "invoke nostalgic happy memories" with the help of characters as diverse as Zelda, Bruce Lee and the Planeteers.

What are the keys to success when modifying a sign? “Use a laser printer, not an inkjet,” says Andrew, “and don’t fall off your ladder.”

I feel like people think I’m needy this week but I’m never like this. Like I actually need friends right now and all of my family is on the other side of the country and my mom and dad are in Colorado and I feel pathetic asking for help and asking people to stay so when I have to ask, it makes me have knots in my stomach.

Usually I can just vent but I’m not entirely sure things will work out for the best and I kind of need that reassurance that it will. I feel really disconnected from everyone.
