Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, the boy is the focal point of the ad.
English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. 
This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. 
A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. 
Here, I’ll make you a better ad.

Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees this and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be.

When Collen Kelton moved to Japan, where he was stationed with the US Military, he bought a silver 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R with the intention of turning it into a souped-up speed machine. While he got to work on the insides of the car, Allison, Kelton’s then-girlfriend (now wife), started doodling intricate patterns on a scratched bumper with a black Sharpie marker. Kelton originally planned to eventually have the car repainted, so at first these doodles were simply an amusing way to pass the time.

But then, as hours and hours worth of drawing time accumulated, it became clear that Allison was turning the car into an awesome work of art. The couple decided to forgo the professional paint job in favor of Allison’s creative skills. After roughly 100 hours of painstaking work she’d covered every inch of the car’s exterior in a dazzlingly complex field of swirling patterns and lines. All that was left to do after that was cover the car with a few layers of protective clearcoat.

Collen Kelton documented the car’s transformation (inside and out) at the Skyline Owners Club forum. Head over there for additional images.
