i have no idea who is making them and why, if it is only one person or many and if it has a meaning or not.

i now opened a flickr group to gather all the photos of these mysterious eggplants.

does anyone know anything about them?

Yes!! I'm so glad someone else noticed them! I'm super intrigued by them! I have no idea who is making them though!

They are drawn by a homeless alcoholic who refers to himself as Eggplant Kid. He is from Canada and covered in stupid tattoos that make him look like a clown.
