FreeDarko - from blog to billboard...

As you know, I'm a huge fan of billboards, but there's something different about this one. Not only is this a cool and colourful billboard in L.A. at the moment, but it's got a pretty cool story behind it too.

FreeDarko is a sports blog specialising in basketball, with Jacob Weinstein doing the illustrations for the site.

The bright and bold billboard, featuring NBA star Blake Griffin flying through the air after being shot from a cannon, is one of his works and can be found along La Brea Avenue above the L.A. brand Undefeated store.

These bloggers obviously have a passion for what they write about because, not only have they seen their work published in books, but now their artwork has been turned into a huge billboard.

And there's me thinking it was just a cool piece of street art.

Who knows, maybe one day we'll see Cooper looming large in the skies of L.A...
