I just spent the weekend cruising around southern California for a little bit of work and a little bit of fun. Of course whatever the reason I do anything I am always on the look for visual stimulation and creative outlet. While driving Melrose Ave to pick up part of my Halloween costume I noticed the huge amount of graffiti, some by amateurs, some by the pros. I snapped a couple pics of artists you should have seen somewhere by now.
Seeing BANKSY is the reason I decided to whip out the camera.
“I’m out of bed and dressed, what more do you want?”
EINE was all over. I don’t know how he does it.
He was usually painting the first letter of the shop’s name.
And of course Shepard Fairey was around, but I didn’t feel like stopping.
You can probably just but this on a shirt at Zumies.
I don’t know much about graffiti but these were the artists I immediately noticed. There is a lot of good stuff out there, but I was trying to stay on schedule and couldn’t stop for all of it.
The night before I was kickin’ it with my old roommate and we carved out a jack-o-lantern in honor of Where the Wild Things Are.
