You know that summer’s here when it’s Tamworth time, one event the weather can’t spoil, well not too much, and this year it was a scorcher, and so was the weather!  DSCF4097Sheffield was once again well represented, Surge was sporting trackies from the new C&B range.DSCF4308Gzos too has an interesting line in clothing ‘Smiley Bum’ .DSCF4103Mace was a Marvel ( 😉 ) DSCF4315Jaer was too busy painting to be making a fashion statement! DSCF4116Dinnertime…….DSCF4131KiwiDSCF4133Bandito PaintDSCF4138SR47DSCF4168Title getting the evil eye from Darth Maul. DSCF4170Aona DSCF4172ESPDSCF4181Annatomix having a boogie!DSCF4196N4T4 x Zooki x Wingy x Grade x Glimmertwin x Auz DSCF4212 Stitch (12000x2525)Chewy x Etchy x Wok x Skema DSCF4235Face The Strange flew in specially. DSCF4239 DecayDSCF4240Dice67, it was fascinating watching this piece come together, love it. DSCF4245Helen Martin DSCF4252 Gnasher, feeling the force. DSCF4280 Stitch DSCF4282 DSCF4290GoosenseiDSCF4297Steve EdwardsDSCF4299Sneaky peak at Mila Ks’ black book. DSCF4082Jay Sharples DSCF4320Mig29, mind blowing!DSCF4321 StitchYo Crew DSCF4324AffixDSCF4334Si2 DSCF4337Irek x Oxer x SuerDSCF4345Mila K almost finished.

Apologies for the artist whose names I don’t know, yet. Fantastic day out as always, had to leave before everyone had finished, as always. Stella had a great day though 🙂 DSCF4144

Still Going!

Seem to have got myself a little behind of late, I blame my crappy internet, (3.5 hours to upload 60 photos!), my garden, it’s a jungle out there, really it is, and also the fact that so much work is so widely documented that there really doesn’t seem to be any need to rush…. so I won’t. 😉 DSCF0844Suek always nice to see work by this talented guy. DSCF0882Meth, the cheeky leg was covered over quickly, glad I got to see it. DSCF1068Coloquix, lady in the lake, well brook actually, had a longer than expected walk to find her, worth the effort though. DSCF1085Foundry, Caught this handsome chap busy on this beautiful tribute piece for sweet Ruby who was only here for eleven days but her memory will live on with her family always. DSCF2152Took me several attempts to get a shot of this due to cars parked in front of it. The piece was completed shortly before Rubys funeral. DSCF1262 StitchAnother lovely tribute for Ruby by Mace, Surge and Mars. DSCF1278 StitchAero x Dose, they don’t get as much coverage as some artists, but are constantly keeping on it. DSCF1288 StitchI’m guessing not local, but my what a wall!DSCF1310 Stitch? x Ask x Dyel, great set of blokes who don’t get out as often as I’d like 😉 DSCF1321 StitchRiseone x I don’t know, but I really like it. DSCF1375Kisk, another fellow who needs to get out more, although I do know he’s often busy with community projects. DSCF1550Slew x Orin, not seen these guys in Sheffield before, they can normally be found lurking further south.DSCF0906Vintage Teas, goodness knows how old it is!DSCF0930Booms, I like to think this is based on me apart from the tattoos, the bald head and the beard 🙂  DSCF1001 StitchBroker, long time no see, perhaps I’m just going to the wrong places…

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….

Tis The Season….

Due to crappy internet, Christmas and bad weather, not got around to posting this even though I started it at the beginning of December. Luckily it has been a bit quiet recently so hopefully I won’t have missed too much out.DSCF6012Love this quirky little chap by Mikk Murray.

Have since been informed that it is Form and Scar, thanks for the info 🙂DSCF6167Sico, in one of my least favourite spots, great piece though.

Assuming the snow melts before the end of the year I hope to be out and about, still got a few bits to catch up on.

Hope everyone has had a very Merry Christmas, thanks for your support over the past year!

Happy October!
