On a recent walk through Duboce Park, we noticed that the “dog on leash” signs had been delightfully updated. This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen the signs whimsically transformed and I’ve shared pictures of formerly transformed on-leash signs before, but I had to share these recent redos because they are pretty freakin’ fun to look at.
The pieces aren’t signed, but Hoodline did a piece about them and someone in the comments mentioned that they look like the work of street artist fnnch (pronounced like the bird) and fnnch replied affirmatively via Twitter.

Why would fnnch do something like this even though it’s not technically legal-ish? Well, according to the artist’s about page:
fnnch wants more art in more places. Public spaces are canvas upon which it is illegal to paint. By putting beautiful art on sidewalks, mailboxes and parks, fnnch forces people to grapple with the idea that they want something illegal to exist. Perhaps the art should stay, and there should be a system permitting artistic expression in these spaces.
Sometimes breakin’ the law looks lovely, doesn’t it?
I showed you mine, now show me yours.
