Sleep well George. x

Happy New Year!

I had thought I’d be out and about over the christmas period, but due to the seaonal weather and over indulgence I haven’t got very far at all, bring on the spring, or at least some dry weather!DSCF6648 StitchI do have a strange fondness for this place, it was one of my very first explores, it had more walls and roofs and even windows then! But I do think it’s on borrowed time now as it is slowly but surely falling down, I’ll be surprised if it lasts another year.DSCF6575 StitchSurge and Britney, did it again, reclaiming a favourite spot.DSCF6651Simple but effective, and slightly disturbing.DSCF6616Mr Hastes’ monkey seems to have escaped 🙂DSCF6591Corpse, surely one of the most photographed pieces in Sheffield over the last few days, love it!DSCF6584Stickers! Featuring C3, D7606, Greenz, SSSOVA, VoxRomana and others.DSCF6522Mila K,Acid Junkies, took this after it had snowed and the sun was shining, it was literally blinding.DSCF6493 StitchNot sure who did the piece on the left, but Dyson in the middle and Teml(?)DSCF6469I like this, a commissioned piece #colourbritain sponsored by Dulux.DSCF6463Coloquix has an exhibition on at the Forum, go see it if you can. I went to the opening night, cue another hangover! 😉DSCF6668 StitchThe skatepark is going through a popular phase at the moment, practically changing every week.DSCF6485 Riseone and Rast, I may have seen Riseone painting this, but it probably wasn’t him… DSCF6673This is an art space, a space for art, the shutter apparently however, is not….

Sheffields Answer To Felm

DSCF5793Got to practice my mountaineering skills to view this wonderful creation by Foundry.DSCF5787Found this little lady by Coloquix hiding out in pigeon land too.DSCF5766And this death defying, but only just, piece by Brisk was near the summit.DSCF5753Reverse graffiti at it’s very best, I do love it when a cover up only reinforces what it’s meant to cover up!DSCF5752YMYD, very busy body at the moment, still not sure whether it’s Gun House or Bun House… but I’d choose death by bun any day 🙂DSCF5747 Rise One quality.DSCF5735Dyson, feeling the rainbow, well most of it.DSCF5703 StitchThe Funky Mind Benders, in your face! 🙂DSCF5860JD  really love this style.DSCF5697‘Your brain is a terrible thing to waste’ – Cantastic Art.DSCF5686Lollipops, interesting collab between C3 and D7606.DSCF5656Haven’t seen this little fellow about for a while, Xhastexo.DSCF5617Peachzz and Teddy BN7, cracking piece in a great location.DSCF5605Tulip by Dala, sometimes something so simple can look so effective.DSCF5826Kent has been the target of a dogging campaign recently, at least this one is untouched.DSCF5823Not a new one I think, but only just spotted this little Eug.DSCF5820Spotted this too, don’t know who it’s by though.DSCF5673As some of you will know, work has begun on the former Gatecrasher site, hopefully we won’t lose the boards just yet.

Well my internet’s still buggered, should be back to normal soon. Good job the weather’s been so lousy I haven’t been out much.

Oh and just in case you were wondering, I have it on good authority that Felm is the correct pronunciation of Phlegm… so now you know!  😉

G’day! (Well 2 of them actually)

DSCF0275It’s always great to meet people as passionate about my hobby/ obsession as I am, so imagine how happy I was that one like-minded individual, was not only making the trip over from Australia to the UK (and Europe), but made it as far as Sheffield too! And it was my privilege to show her the sights over the two days she was here. Lady P as some of you may know is a graffaholic and I think it’s fair to say we have a lot in common. We tried to fit in as much as we could, but didn’t make it to all the spots I’d hoped. It was strange to realise how much I no longer notice, just because it’s there. It was good to see each place through another persons’ eyes.

Despite having never been finished the Phlegm piece above is still amazing.

DSCF0298 StitchThis Mega Production by Kode, Lone, Gzos and Mars was one I’d not seen up close, looks pretty special.DSCF0352Bumped into some of the new crop of artists in the city,was good to put names to pieces, the one above is by Desmond.DSCF0361Lady P caught in action photographing Peachz at work.DSCF0376The latest piece of loveliness from Eugene Booms.DSCF0444Lady P was able to see CoLor Art and Narke creating this fabulous piece, I think she took a few snaps too.DSCF0423I don’t know anything about Anubis, but I really like what he does, this is my favourite so far.DSCF0291Spied a beautiful Coloquix lady.DSCF0461Lady P was quite taken with this wall by H2i.DSCF0466Solo, I hope I got it right this time! Really like it anyway.DSCF0496I’ve not heard of Purpz before, not sure whether he’s local or not, cool piece though.DSCF0499Sico, seems to be all over the place at the moment. 🙂 DSCF0517Rather fond of these little critters by ABC.DSCF0523A horned lady by Casino, love the style of these.DSCF0526Really like this combination of paste up and paint by Dala.DSCF0540Making use of the architectural features, Meth.DSCF0543 Another making use of the architecture, can somebody tell me who it is please? I now know it’s Brisk 🙂DSCF0559Robo x Brisk, enjoying watching their styles and skills develop.DSCF0582Dyson consistently good.DSCF0572Paid a visit to the studio where Foundry works with his brother,and found this sexy lady on the wall.DSCF0570Lady P was keen to see as much as she could in her time with us, this piece by Rocket was the next to the last she saw on her trip.

It says a lot for Sheffield that someone like Lady P from so faraway, would be aware of what is going on here and want to come and see it for herself. I think we gave her a pretty grand tour, giving her a proper Yorkshire welcome and introducing her to a traditional English chippy and the questionable delights of dandelion and burdock!

It was a real pleasure to have her here I do hope she enjoyed it as much as I did…….Oh and by the way, she never said g’day once!
