Blog Hypebeast notes that erstwhile Louis Vuitton designer Kanye West has appeared above 45th Street and Seventh Avenue, staring impassively out at midtown from a billboard advertising his album 808s and Heartbreak. The photo is from the special edition of the album, which came out in December with new artwork by art-toy designer KAWS. Underneath it, in an excellent case of contrasting billboards, a clueless Mr. Peanut mugs his monocled heart out.
