The Decapitator

In the great tradition of Posterboy and Posterchild, an artist named The Decapitator—whose work was previously spotted in London, Paris and Sao Paulo—has been leaving his funny, bloody mark on New York billboards lately. Earlier this week he even organized a scavenger hunt (illegally, of course) at the Union Square Barnes & Noble, where he’s planted several copies of this month’s Rolling Stone with Shakira’s head chopped off (like so). There may still be a few hidden copies in the store, but even if they’re all gone you should check out his work. (WhoKilledBambi?)
