2:38 PM PST on December 2, 2015

    We usually highlight billboard takeovers, but here's a legal billboard by an artist that you might want to check out.

    Nathan Bell, an artist and designer from Los Angeles, and was previously art director for Foundation Skateboards and etnies footwear, is joining The Billboard Creative on the launch its second public art show. TBC will be displaying 33 billboards throughout the streets of Los Angeles this year and next, featuring artists including Ed Ruscha, Jack Pierson, Andrew Bush, Shane Guffogg, Kim McCarty, Panos Tsagaris and others.

    His piece is topical on two fronts-- lack of water in this parched city is on people's minds, but at the end of the day, income inequality, an aging economy, crumbling infrastructure, and the fact that "the paper's out there" but never seems to land in the right place is probably more pressing.

    “Make It Rain” will be viewable from: Dec 1st to Dec 27, 2015 on Highland South of Willoughby, East Side, Facing North - Los Angeles, CA. Check it out in person, or here on ye olde blog...
