  1. Banksy’s Changes to a Robbo Original, 2009
  2. The Original
  3. Robbo’s Retaliation 

“The elusive aerosol painter, [Banksy] has caused outrage by covering up a piece of graffiti that had remained untouched since it was painted in 1985.
Its creator, Robbo, a hugely respected graffiti artist, immediately retaliated by spraying his name over Banksy’s painting of a workman on a wall in North London.

Covering over someone else’s graffiti is seen as the ultimate mark of disrespect within the street art community.

Robbo, whose real name is unknown, promptly reclaimed his space and covered over the exposed part of the wall with a new painting declaring ‘King Robbo’ in 3ft high silver letters.” -Daily Mail

Today in time travel trauma, Hera is still taking this better than Kanan.  Though not by much.

“I can’t be here,” she added, in a hurry to move the conversation off the Jedi. “This place doesn’t exist anymore.  This –”
 
The door behind her opened. Hera spun on the balls of her feet, raising her fists, only to see her mother come inside the room.
 
Alecto Syndulla obviously hadn’t been expecting to see Hera on her feet.  She froze, her hand clenching on the side of the door as her gaze flicked quickly between Cham and Hera.  She was a tall Twi’lek woman a few years younger than her husband, her skin a darker green than Hera’s and with a little more blue in it.  At the moment she was wearing a tight sleeveless shirt and cut-off pants, barefoot on the tiled floor.
 
The last time Hera had seen her she had been dead on the street in Lessu’s central market, killed by an Imperial sniper.  Hera could still remember how her skin had felt beneath her hands, still warm, before Cham had pulled her away and shoved her into Gobi’s arms, covering Alecto’s body with his own as he searched fruitlessly for a pulse.
 
Some of that must have showed on her face.  Alecto’s grip loosened on the door and she started to step forward; Hera moved back automatically, staring.
 
“Mama?”

Persephone: Harvest Goddess and Queen of the Underworld

This was for my Character Ideation Final and I’m glad to say that I’ve learned and grown as an artist because of this class.

The idea for the final was to create 5 mythological characters and remix them into a style that they aren’t usually seen in. I chose to do a modern/street fashion remix, and Persephone is what I decided to do for my final.

*I’ll post the other gods and goddesses that I did later on.

I love Sherlock Holmes. I also love musicals. And tonight I learned a weird, vaguely disturbing related fact that I was generally unaware of.

That’s not a confession, but it’s definitely the truth. I grew up reading the original stories and listening to radio serials. I’ve watched every legitimate Sherlock Holmes adaptation (excluding Elementary and that unfortunate indie Sherlock movie somehow involving dinosaurs) through well more than once. 

Of all the actors who have portrayed him, however, my favorite is the late Jeremy Brett. Whenever I think about Sherlock Holmes, he’s who I picture. 

Tonight, I decided to go look at his IMDB page, and I saw something that I never knew: the fact that he played Freddy Eynsford-Hill in My Fair Lady. He sang On the Street Where You Live.

I’ve seen the whole of the Sherlock Holmes Granada series more than once. I’ve also seen My Fair Lady many times, as it’s a favorite off mine. And somehow, I never realized that.

Curious? I tracked down a clip here on YouTube.

NeSpoon is a street artist from Warsaw, Poland. Her artistic focus is on the intricate patterns of lace, and breaking its granny stereotype by using it to beautify gritty urban spaces. NeSpoon calls her artistic approach the “jewellery of the public space”:

Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better.

NeSpoon often uses the usual spray paint and stencils of enlarged lace patterns to produce her works on the street via
