Spam. Not the quasi-meat product, but the unsolicited sales pitches that bombard our inboxes. It promises to make us larger. To make us thinner. To be the cheapest. To be the best. It’s annoying to most of us, but when sent in very large numbers, it finds a small percentage of people who can’t help but click through. One artist, Linzie Hunter (Flickr), has taken the spam she has received and made it into a collection of attractive… spam signs. Perhaps the click-through rates would be higher if spam looked like this.

Photos from Linzie’s 30 illustrations can be purchased as postcards at Amazon.com. Stats for Hand-Drawn Spam Trending: Older & Chilly
