Edison’sFat Cats, La Bodega, Lava Lounge, Lincoln Park Pub, Prosperity Social Club and The South Side invite you to explore something that makes their westside neighborhood special with The Sign Guy Instagram scavenger hunt challenge!

Originally a graffiti artist, today The Sign Guy’s distinctive outsider street art with its fire-breathing cats, deranged rabbits, oddly aggressive birds and other bright, cartoony characters can be found around almost every corner of Tremont.

“Once you’re hip to the mischievous creatures you notice them peering at you from table legs, utility poles, door handles and fence posts,” says longtime resident Kimmie McGee. “Their random appearances always brighten my day.”

Explore the neighborhood, snap a selfie with an example of The Sign Guy’s creativity before October 31, 2017, and post it with the tag #TSGTremont for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate monthly and to be entered to win a grand prize gift basket that includes $60 in gift certificates AND an original painting.

Not social media savvy? No problem. Email your image(s) to and Prosperity Social Club can enter and share it for you.

Not that you’ll need help finding these colorful characters, but here are 6 murals to look for and a map to get you started.
