By now you've probably seen at least one of these graffiti'd stencils around town, depicting former Governor Rod Blagojevich out for a little jog. Want to see more? Surprise, surprise -- you're gonna have to pay.

The artist behind the design, Ray Noland (who co-curated last month's Obama exhibit, "Officially Unofficial"), plans to put up a temporary gallery featuring many interpretations of the jogging Blago. So far, he's raised $871 online (donate here), about a quarter of his goal of $3,500.

What, you think he's just going to show his art for nothing? This is a !@#?ing valuable thing!
