When you see a Beautiful Angle poster in the wild take it because it won't be there for long.
The Beautiful Angle angels have been producing and posting stunning letterpressed pieces of art around Tacoma since 2006. Their work is sought after and gobbled up nearly immediately after they're stapled or wheatpasted on walls and bulletin boards throughout town. I can only imagine the piles of their work some locals must have squirreled away in private collections.
Speaking from personal experience, however, the above tip couldn't be more true as I passed up what would've been a quick lunchtime stop on Market Street to pull down one of their latest posters thinking I'd instead snag it on my way home from work. Of course, lo, it was already gone which marks a true testament to the popularity of their work and talents.

|But, if everybody grabs them to collect, how will anybody experience them as public art? I leave them when I see them for others to enjoy. I'll continue to save collecting for the collectors.|

|They're temporary installations much like the chalk at Frost Park. See and/or grab them while you can because their appearance in the wild is always fleeting.
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
