Posted a picture from

our trip up to see Bassnectar in NY this fall. Finally posting the rest.

Had a few party leftovers scattered around the hotel room. Gathered them up into a stack and left our housekeeper her very own “turn up” kit.

The bill from brunch at The Crooked Knife came on a small clipboard, with the raddest woman around on the back of it.

Chicago Street Art: Chapter 2

Finally making good…

on the claim I made in Chapter 1 of this installment and posting the latter half of the photos from my trip to Chicago. All of these were on a singular wall with construction equipment rolling all around it. Clearly it would be a shame if any of these were damaged (or totally torn down) but I guess that’s just the way she goes.

Chicago Street Art: Chapter 1

I stayed with my best friend at his new place in Chicago this May. Some of you reading this may recall a photo I posted from the trip, which was meant to be a teaser in anticipation of a more in-depth report. By comparison to most of my other posts it was a bit of a daunting task, so I’ve procrastinated on the undertaking until now.

The outside of a wicked donut shop. Please correct me if you think I’m mistaken, but I can’t imagine a more clever brand name.

CHOMP.

Real talented kid that put this up.

Love the facade of this gallery. Clearly they were closed when we rolled by. Definitely a bit of a let down, but we carried on with our chins up and the wind at our backs.

Due to the detail that went into these pieces and their prominence from the street, this has to be a city-condoned project, otherwise the artists probably would’ve caught a world-class knuckle sannich from Johnny Law. Mid-spray.

Bonus Bob’s Burgers restaurant.

Chapter two coming soon.

More RVA Street Art

In case it’s not already abundantly obvious: this is not my work.

I can’t help but document this and hope that the majority of my followers see this little (actually, it’s pretty damn big) gem stationed across the street from Village Cafe in Richmond, VA. Seeing this kind of art, an original idea executed by a masterful painter, is what motivates me to become better. My knowledge that I may never achieve this degree of skill, is what drives me to continue to progress.
