80’s Hair Band Cock

Me, jealous of a roosters hair?

Okay, I suppose they are feathers, but look at that hair (erm, feathers)

I’d date him!

Okay, Def Leppard didn’t have the best hair of the 80’s Hair Bands, but it was pretty good. NO OTHER BAND had a ONE ARMED DRUMMER! Omg, he’s fabulous. I do have a penchant for drummers, as some might remember. This rock/sex anthem still gets me going.

What 80’s Hair Band do you think had the best hair?

Kool Kats

Hello! I’m your vocalist for the evening, and I am in the Koolest band, ever!

As you can see, the Kool Kats has an upright bass, singer, keyboardist, trumpeter, drummer and accordionist.  

Let’s have a hand for the band!

That’s our manager. Wish he’d quit smoking, but he thinks it’s kool, and he’s a kool kat, too!

❤️ Queen of Hearts ❤️

Holly – House of Heart, this is for you!

A year and a half ago, I went out searching for this mural.

It’s in the area between Queen & King Streets, but I couldn’t find it. There was construction everywhere: demolishment, cranes, scaffolding and I figured, it’s gone!

A couple of weeks ago, I was in in the same area. Construction had evolved. I look down an alley and see this splash of colour.

As I got closer, I thought it’s like Holly.  It’s not just that it’s as pretty as Holly, but it’s the 2 personas, and the blonde and red hair. I draw Holly in 4 characters: Rene Rosso & Princess Blue Holly (both red heads), Art Gowns Model Holly & Boogapony Holly (both shades of blondes).

Then, when I stepped back and looked the entire mural, I realized it was the one I had tried to find, a year & half ago.

There are a lot of elements to this mural, all depicting the rich cultural tapestry, that defines the area.

At the bottom left, as we look at it, there is this neat fairy fiction person. Unfortunately it was tagged. I cleaned it up as much as I could for this presentation.

To the left of the Queen of Hearts are 4 creative types. I have put them in a slideshow, below.

To celebrate these minor players in the mural, and finding the Queen of Hearts, I chose a song by Queen!

To the right of the Queen of Hearts, are 4 more alternative/creatives. Find them in the slideshow, below.

To celebrate those characters, I choose a song by Heart. Now we have a complete musical, Finding the Queen of Hearts.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the Queen of Hearts, as much as I have!

Best mural car reflection I ever took!

🌹 Stay Strong 🌹

I was out looking for a different mural, that I’d heard about.

The rose caught the corner of my eye.

It was on a side street, and “le gasp” when I saw the entire piece.

Needless to say I was sidetracked, and forgot about the other mural.

Interesting… one of the artists, I would say the face artist, is the same artist who painted Scheheraholly.

Strength to all!
