What a great night and a great show! My worries about how all of these would look in one place were unfounded, it rocked! Amazing show not to be missed. All the artists really worked hard on this one, every Boy Soldier looked totally different and you could tell the substrate stretched the imagination. All the artists i talked to said that they struggled with these incredible panels, changing their minds many times on what to paint on them. Make sure you pop in, these are well worth the visit

Zadok & I

Found some stuff Zadok and i did earlier this year that never saw the light of day. It was fun to work with one of the finest drawing machines i have ever met perhaps there will be more to come later this year….who knows? You can check out his stuff at Plastic Bones . Those of you who were paying attention to last Saturdays episode of Sherlock Holmes you may of noticed that he was responsible for allot of the graffiti in that episode. Anyhow here’s a couple of stencils I cut from the Z’s sketch’s.

The one below is sprayed on some mulberry paper that a friend brought me back from Bhutan.

Budget cuts needed

In these hard times of public spending cuts that will indeed affect front line services in the UK (Francis Maude). Surely the huge amount of money expended on graffiti removal in London and across the UK would be better used to educate our children and heal our sick?  Tower hamlets estimates that it costs £400,000 to remove graffiti from its streets, it states that graffiti across London cost £100 million to remove in 2002. Tower hamlets explains that “Graffiti can reduce property values and depress economic development.” surely they mean bankers.

The inspiration for this observation was the removal of the tag in the previous entry Tagger scum. It appeared over a weekend was stickered and was cleaned by Monday afternoon. The effort of all involved (except probably the tagger) beggars belief.
