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.Love this quirky little chap by Mikk Murray.

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!
So, after a tip off, I found myself on a rooftop early one morning before going to work. It’s a pretty good vantage point for the cheeky Narke piece, but imagine my surprise when a security guard arrived to escort me off the roof, I think he thought I was going to jump! To be fair, I was quite happy to see him, I hate heights and was starting to hyperventilate. Still a first though!
Phlegm, Tragedy and Comedy, which describes my access to this place, narrowly avoiding tragedy providing huge comedy for my son! This is a place I’d been looking at for a couple of years and was really surprised that this masterpiece was the only piece in here.
Nearly up to date now, although this keeping up lark is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge, neverending, but I wouldn’t have it any other way
In my quest to see that bloke Phlegms work, I have ended up in some strange places. Staggering up a very steep bank trying to walk on partially buried milk bottles overgrown with brambles to get to an abandoned pigeon coop was fun, although practically tumbling into the path of rush hour traffic on my way back down was funnier, wide eyed and covered in brambles, twigs and I dread to think what else, I gave a few motorists a fright.
The early part of the year, can be a bit slow on the graffiti front, not a lot happening unless you know where to look and at this point I did not. Good time for having a wander and finding all the stuff you’ve missed.
This is by Rowdy and Gold Peg.
Hungry Horace is still a conundrum to me. I don’t know who or why, but he’s certainly brightened up the Sheaf Valley trail and Porter Brook areas with his wacky productions, using car seats, tiles, chests and carpet in his productions. Sadly a lot of the Horaces have been buffed now, but I guess it just means he will have to make more.
Bubba 2000, I love this but it was very short lived as the University has a zero tolerance policy to graffiti, even when it’s really good.
As I am currently incapacitated, it’s really quite frustrating to see the ground I was covering on a regular basis… at least it’s only 15 days and counting till the pot comes off!
