How to turn a Billboard into a giant doodle pad for the public

Innovative, brash, satirical and often bold, these are the words to describe the work of world renowned street artist Mobstr.

From Newcastle, Mobstr sometimes tells stories through his work while at other times they are merely entertaining. Mobstr is passionate about his work which ranges from the very simple to deeper meanings. His work can be said to be a critique of consumerism, advertising and society as a whole.

On his website,  Mobstr shows us a comprehensive guide through images of the whole process of his new piece.

1. Find a billboard low to the ground and keep track of its rotations
This billboard in particular was chosen because it is under a bridge so rain wouldn’ t cause any problems.
Also, it is next to a pub. Pissed people are more likely to be one to the concept.

2. Make the billboard.

3. Find a type of marker that won’ t dry out if its lid is not replaced. The general public will not bother to replace the lids of your markers once they have used them. A waxy marker is ideal. The types for marking livestock fit these specifications and are not too expensive. you may want to add a second colour into the mix.

4. Obtain equipment for attaching the pens to the board and assemble.

5. Put up the billboard and attach the pens
