Throne literature by dinyctis Throne literature by dinyctis
This one was born out of necessity:

Every time i take a leak, I'm forced to stare at a white wall. Forget the cliche stream and river images that are supposed to get me to want to urinate. If im in the bathroom, then its because I already want to! No need for extra motivation, thanks.

But one of the great things about public restrooms is without a doubt.......the writings on the walls. Oh yes. So i figured that I'd have some clever reading material for my bathroom, and some homage to the unknown poets and artists who use public property as canvas.

From a design point of view, what other work will allow you to obliterate the "no more than 2 fonts" rule?
the one thing that kept bothering me was the toilet. But then it hit me: That's how i see it when i go into a stall: the rough walls and floor compared to the smoothness of the toilet. I tried doing away with it.....but no, didnt work much. The rest is pretty much obvious, some filth, fingerprints, scratches; all digitally created to simulate, but not imitate, a public stall wall.

Some of the writings are my own, some are taken from many articles and archives and......well....reading it in public stalls. Some research was actually made for this one =P

Now im finally gonna have something interesting to read :toocool:

EDIT: WALLPAPER version

this is pretty much pure awesome. i like when public restrooms have the sign which says please don't write in the stalls, but has the most graffiti. yeah, those signs seem to really be working.

I always have a centropen with me just to comment if I saw something like that. Love it.
Last time I thought about the triangles while shitting and I drew the mathematic proof of Pythagoras' c^2=a^2+b^2

If you changed that one in the black circle to:

Pity the poor dork
Who's poetic aptitude
Is enhanced by shit

It would be a haiku... Lol, I study things too much. But anyway, I also get a great deal of amusement from reading bathroom graffiti. Maybe I should write a long poem or Shakespearean sonnet about feces and write it on the wall of a burger king bathroom stall. I'd love to see what happens.

It would also be grammatically incorrect! It should be "whose"

Sorry, couldn't resist :)

I have to remember "If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down" :D
Exactly the same saying exists in Germany: "Wenn es Gelb ist bleibt es stehn, wenn es braun ist darf es gehn" XDD Ooooh yeah.
