  Artist Sketches Billboard Told by Cops to Draw Something Nice

Ken Avidor: Landscape of Fear

Ken Avidor, a comic book artist, was sketching and photographing a public billboard in Minneapolis when a private security guard told him he was not allowed. Ken said that he was. Guard called the cops. Cops said, sure he was allowed, but he would looked less "suspicious" if he didn't draw something "ugly" like the billboard but instead drew "something nice likethe IDS building."
