Illustrator Jim Darling saw all the junk building up between two abandoned buildings and thought he’d do something about it. Out of that came ‘Junk Man.’

‘Junk Man’ was created using old mattresses, tires and even a fire hydrant, which was spray-painted gold to be used as Junk Man’s blinged-out necklace. A really clever use of waste from Jim Darling.
