Still Brightening The City Wall by Wall And Board By Board

DSCF0722 StitchIzal, king of his own Castle!  DSCF0712Eug – Neatness aint my weakness, but f**k me it gets boring! First world problems 😉 DSCF0705 StitchNo idea who did this but it’s really rather good. DSCF0675 StitchaMarcus Method x STOG wall for Fifty Shades of Spray, probably looked better without the varnish or whatever it is thown on it, but the quality shines through. DSCF0514 StitchaDmak x CynikDSCF0465 Stitch Trik x STOG x Hyro x Kisk x Marcus Method, glorious! DSCF0460Dyson, he’s a Full Metal Brother. DSCF0443Rocket01, brilliant part of a wall that will be amazing when it’s all finished. DSCF0442Tofu, probably DSCF0380New banging piece from Form.DSCF0373Skam, new to me, much like 🙂  DSCF0331 StitchBob x Skint x Suek, painting them awkward to photograph places, again!DSCF0315Beautiful Peacock by Moenipulation, part of what is going to be, hopefully, a massive art project in the Sheffield Antiques Quarter. DSCF0274 StitchGrips, this is just awesome!DSCF0267Fishy Gums..DSCF0247?DSCF0767 StitchStunner from Mars and Kode.DSCF0745aDeap x Dese x Ensa x Narke loving the colours!

Visited a few places I haven’t been in a while recently, some had changed more than others,but all change is good(hopefully), noticing a few new spots appearing too, fingers crossed they keep appearing as fast as the old ones are being demolished!

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman.

DSCF9825 StitchmBit of a delay between posts,mostly because of this wonderful piece by Bob x Skint x Suek, which was an absolute pig to photograph, very good though, and really rather clever.  🙂  DSCF8261Dmak, reclaiming what is seeming to be one of his regular spots.DSCF8286Managed to catch the man himself, Rocket01, just putting the finishing touches to this beauty, stunning.DSCF9598Brayk, we can fix you…we can make you fit in. I read this wrong initially as ‘we can fix Ada’, but we can probably fix her as well..DSCF9604Cheeky little chap by Rateone, love this…..and I didn’t fall off the makeshift ladder I had to climb to get it… result!DSCF9620Fox2b, a visitor to Sheffield perhaps, I don’t know, loving this style though. DSCF9636Something a little different from Trik9, the Oak Elephant.  DSCF9652Marcus Method x Eugene Booms. Ventured into a spot where I wouldn’t normally go on my own to capture this awesomeness, needn’t have worried, place was full of photographers!DSCF9654Ghost Patrol paid a little visit to Sheffield, nice to see. DSCF9660D7606 x Martian Code, an international collaboration which I really like. DSCF9670Little rays of sunshine. DSCF9677Becoming a real fan of Ogosh, not such a bad apple at all 🙂DSCF9860 StitchKode x Bern, Suicide Bear fantastic, if slightly disturbing..DSCF9625Looks like Coloquix lady is turning to the bottle,not surprising really…

I had wondered if there would be any implications following the demolition of the so-called ‘crack den’ as the regulars there would need a new place to go. On entering this site to visit the tipsy lady above, I bumped into a group of four men, who were just leaving, all looking rather spaced, one clutching a carrier bag and another one of them dressed ….. as Batman…..

April Splashes!

Sleep well George. x

DSCF1819DSCF2068 DSCF0229On a side note, sad to see that the new owners of the pub that was the Bell Jar have painted over all the artwork that was there, their loss (and ours) I suppose, but a pity none the less.

Happy October!
