If you’re like us, nothing affronts your sense of artistic integrity more than having members of the public deface advertising posted in public places. So imagine our outrage when we came across Jilly Ballistic's work on flikr
Ballistic’s oeuvre consists mainly of layering unsightly computer dialog boxes over exquisitely crafted outdoor ads. An act of hooliganism that will no doubt be cheered on by Philistines who fail to recognize real art when they see it.

If you're content spending many quiet hours working on your art, consider pursuing a career as a graphic designer.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, as a graphic designer you might create visual concepts to get your client's message across to their target audience. Part of the role might also include developing logos, illustrations, or websites with designs created by hand or with computer programs.
How is it ideal for quiet people? Are you a visual thinker who is more conversant in the world of shapes, patterns, and colors than in words? That can be an asset if you're aiming to be a graphic designer. If you experience the world first and foremost through your eyes, you can make everything you touch a lot more aesthetically pleasing as a graphic designer.
