Downtown's crosswalks have been getting decorative imprints lately, adding a touch of graphics to the streets.

Little Tokyo has adopted the open fan on their wayfinder signage at 2nd and Central, and 2nd and San Pedro. Chinatown has installed monochrome dragons to welcome fortune and ensure safe passage through some of its major intersections on Broadway.

Then there is the manhole cover at Ord and Alameda, with markings that almost resemble a flower. Happy accident, or bored maintenance worker with a spray can?
