Write it in Dirt

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?


Paul Curtis works with dirt, stencils and water.

The English street artist who goes by "Moose," calls his work reverse graffiti because in essence, it comes from cleaning dirty surfaces in shapes and images.

He's been "cleaning" for more than 10 years -- with and without approval/payment -- and while he's been called a vandal on more than one occasion, no one has ever been able to press charges, because, as he says, "No one owns the dirt."
