Dear PoPville – Anyone Know the Artist?

Dear PoPville,

My roommates and I have noticed this duck-billed glasses-wearing cup of coffee everywhere in DC, and no one seems to know what it is (led to an interesting Google image search). Does anyone have any idea who the artist is?

I’ve seen these all over as well. My favorite is from Florida Ave, NW pictured here. There was also one on Dan’s Cafe in Adams Morgan for months.

    Unless they’ve taken it down in the last few weeks, the one on Dan’s Cafe is still there.

    Yeah, his name is Jerome. I don’t know his last name. He hangs out at bistro labonne sometimes (I know him from there). He and another artist, dblack, are having an exhibition in a couple of months, but I can’t remember where.

    That’s Banksy. There was a good documentary about him a few months ago, Enter through the Gift Shop. Check it out. Pretty informative. Cheers.

    Also on the old Duchess & the Queen (not sure if that’s right) place right next to Meeps. New sighting from a couple days ago, unless they’ve taken it down already. The Dan’s Cafe one is still up.
