Happy October!

DSCF5031After 2 weekends lurking in Birmingham and a broadband connection that keeps feeling nostalgic and replicating the golden age of dial up internet, I find I’ve got a bit of a backlog. So this is a larger than normal Sheffield post while I try to get back on track.

Stickers,some people hate them, I love them, especially when there’s little collections of them, this set includes D7606, C3, Rubix, Zabou and Greenz.DSCF5025Brayk, a man of many words. DSCF5010 StitchDouble Meth, twice the fun!DSCF5003Byne, been a bit quiet lately, working on a new project perhaps.DSCF5002Like this, don’t know who it is though.DSCF4974Part of the wonderful Rocket01 and Mila K collaboration piece.

Apologies for the loads I’ve missed, I promise it won’t happen again!

Sheffield Calling

DSCF1408 Stitch (8000x1031)Much as I enjoy a road trip, I’m always mindful that I’ll be missing something going on in Sheffield. And I really hate missing out on things. Like this awesome collaboration between Such, Time, Pawski and the mighty Astek who made a trip up north and stopped for a paint while he was here.DSCF1415If you’re from this city you will be very aware of the terrible hit and run accident that resulted in serious injuries to one young girl and the tragic death of Jazzy Chan. This beautiful tribute appeared within days of the incident. I honestly do not know how the driver who did this can live with themselves.DSCF1396Trik9 just keeps getting better, love these characters. The man himself has an exhibition on in September, can’t wait to see it. DSCF0806Not seen one of these before, can anyone tell me what a Doriscy is? DSCF0802Cheeky little Greenz piece I spotted.DSCF0671The finished Rocket and Fauna piece Eye Catching, very!DSCF0658Trik9, again, because everyone loves TMNT right?DSCF0599 StitchBurn, Lone and Rack One, part of a larger collaboration that was pretty amazing, but sadly rather badly damaged by the time I got to it. DSCF1500Had to wait years, literally, to see this piece in the flesh, no idea who did it, but it was worth the wait.DSCF1418Cantastic Art, constantly trying new things, I really like this. DSCF1422Methosaurus, I can’t get enough of the awesome characters Meth is coming out with lately.DSCF1428Osiris, bluetiful! 😉 Osim not  osiris sorry.DSCF0648Not sure who did this, Suek maybe, but I have been wrong before…but not this time 🙂DSCF0636 StitchAsim and Erase? I probably shouldn’t be guessing, but whoever it is I like it. Osim not asim… I’ll get my coat….

I know I’ve got loads more to catch up on, better get my hiking boots on!

Dayrider, £4 Citywide Tour

DSCF8973On my travels found this beauty by C3, looks like she’s becoming a regular visitor to Sheffield, all good  🙂DSCF8902Something fishy about this Coloquix piece, not a cat in sight.DSCF8894Funny what you can find when you fall through a doorway, not sure how old this Sour x Narke collab is, but I wouldn’t have found it otherwise!DSCF8890I do like these cheeky chimps by Xhastexo, he’s got quite a collection I think.DSCF8882Sico trying something a little different, I’m a fan!DSCF8868I’m really loving these new characters from Eug, can’t believe some numpty dogged it within a week…DSCF8919Big Mouth by Rateone, I’ve seen a photo of a piece he did out of Sheffield where he made use of a doorway in a similar fashion, so glad he’s done one here.DSCF8933Greenz and Brisk, gloriously green!DSCF8947 StitchNOFX x Dyson, The Deadly Type, quality. DSCF8964After a short sabbatical, Gzos has risen again. Praise be!DSCF8970Recreating one of the prints from his recent exhibition, Kid Acnes’ Ping Pong Girls.

Mustn’t grumble about a day out for £4, always lots to see, but it would be nice if they had toilets and perhaps a mini bar on the tram…

Autumnal Activities

DSCF7144Even though the weather has certainly turned autumnal, there’s still a lot going on in the city, I revisited one of my favourite urbex spots to get this Mila K x Skint piece. DSCF7165Stood at the tramstop and spotted this eyecatching little number!DSCF7228I’m sure Skint said he’d never paint the ballcourts again, must be an imposter! 😉DSCF7310 StitchThis is a bit of a cobbled together photo, the pieces by Prone and CoLor were completed a few days before Espre finished his bit. unfortunately somebody felt the need to ruin CoLors piece before I could get a complete finished shot, so this is a composite set of three images taken several days apart. This seems to be happening a lot lately, with several artists being targeted, not big and not clever. As you can see it was a great wall, if only for a short time. DSCF7219I don’t know who did this, Aspirin, may or may not be a clue, whoever did it, I like it, a lot.DSCF7197I’m not sure who did this either, but it’s ace. I now have it on good authority that this piece is by Meth, which I thought it might be, but wasn’t sure.DSCF6914Xhastexo x Bine x Greenz, a lovely combination. DSCF6944H2i member Pawski, flying solo on this one, awesome as per usual, and he just about finished it before it went dark!DSCF7241 StitchH2i, were out in force for this one, Pawski, Mace, Mars, Evo and Seed spent the Remembrance weekend on this truly wonderful production, a very fitting tribute to the fallen.DSCF7171And now for something completely different! Bunny !

It’s All Going on!

DSCF5120Mars has been revisiting his childhood again, Orville, he’s his very best friend!  😉

DSCF5118 Time? I’m really bad at reading letter pieces, but I do like it.DSCF5113This is something different, I’m guessing not anyone local, love the style.

DSCF5106I worry when Booms goes quiet, but when he then reappears with an epic masterpiece like this, I’m reassured that balance is restored.

DSCF5092How many hamsters can you fit in a phone box, answers on a postcard please to D7606.

DSCF5091Had to revisit this place because my first shots of this awesome Rateone piece were rubbish, think I’ve done it justice now.

DSCF5086Sour, making good use of any space.DSCF5083Tekonta Secta and CoLor, just wonderful.DSCF5072C3 x D7606, becoming regular visitors lately, the more the merrier!DSCF5075Mr Booms and CoLor, a lesson in painting on stairs and the decay of a dead pigeon.

DSCF5047A Coloquix lady being lusted over by a Rateone monster while a jealous Greenz rabbit looks on furiously, it’s like an episode of Eastenders…DSCF5061Not just a Mars favourite, one of mine too, Pinky and the Brain.DSCF5032Jaer,  love the piece but have to say I don’t know who the little fellow is.

DSCF5039One of Kid Acnes’ stabby women, not sure if it’s been doctored but she looks like she’s holding a vibrator to me, or perhaps she’s a ladyboy?DSCF5042Not sure who did this but I have my suspicions.DSCF5043Bob, he’s a devil!DSCF5046Dyson and Rambo, throw up masters at the moment.

On a bit of a catch up spree at the moment, hopefully will get another post up in the next day or two.
