Titled “These Pixels are Making Me Thirsty” (clever) the print features a border made of muffin tops, tasty but salty pretzels, and is filled with wonderfully illustrated icons inspired by the show. I love that the poster itself has no title… it’s like a litmus test for a true fan! [Read more...]

The sculpture is also unique in that it features multiple “tours” of the city taken by ping pong balls that roll around and through the landmarks.
