Old model

Wandering around brick lane on my way to atlantis, spotted these. Don’t know who did em but loved the technique if not the subject matter. Aren’t these folk famous enough? Is it weird cutting stuff from other peoples pictures or is it just me? Who knows perhaps Nick Knight is getting up. Nice style though. Ian from Wallkandy reckoned they were some sort of viral ad campaign, figures.

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.

Tagger scum

Some helpful person is labeling the street. Don’t know who is weirder, the Tagger or someone so incensed that they produce a sticker to tell you something you already knew. Made me laugh though!
