Known to cleverly takeover over a billboard in his time, Ron and his Popaganda team are releasing mini-billboard prints, the first being "Breathe," on his site on Wednesday, August 29.

As you probably know, or forgot about 15 minutes ago, but today is the infamous 4-20, a full-court press of weed jokes and eating fast food you don't really want. To celebrate the occasion, we turn to witticisms of Ron English, who not only is featured in our May 2012 Public Art Issue, but is also an artist who can create a clever weed advertisement. Enjoy.

The May 2012 issue of Juxtapoz is our special examination on the state of Public Art in 2012. We have spent over a year discussing the topic of community sevice and Public Art programs with festival organizers, politicians in the US and abroad, and artists about their experiences developing Public Art initiatives and bodies of work, and how their experiences can be blueprints for other artists and cities to follow to better communities around the world. This issue is what we learned. Preview after the jump . . .
