Twitter “Fail Whale” Artist Now Selling Stickers and Wall Art

first_imgTags:#twitter#web Do you know about the Twitter “fail whale?” Of course you do – it’s the iconic image that displays whenever the microblogging social network takes a nose dive. What many do not know, however, is that the so-called “Fail Whale” wasn’t a creation from Twitter itself to decorate their startup’s “uh-oh” page, but actually the work of an unknown artist, Yiying Lu, whose image was posted for use at a stock photo site. Of course, Lu isn’t all that unknown anymore, as her fail whale was soon embraced by the community and turned into a social object. And now that object can decorate your computer or even your walls, thanks to new Twitter art from Lu herself. The “fail whale” is just one of many new wall graphics now available at LTLprints.com. There are also images of an owl, an elephant, trees and even a very Twitter-like bird, among others, all of which are offered in sizes that range from laptop-sized to wall-to-ceiling prints up to 7-feet tall.
