Cutest Raccoon Ever

OMG! I stumbled upon an entertainment plaza made entirely out of shipping containers.

There’s shops for everything, small kiosks, restaurants and a beer hall+, park areas and more. The place has electricity and all the amenities.

There is art on everything! This project is still not finished.

Love this raccoon. Apparently, Toronto is the world’s Raccoon Capital!

Heading out to look for street art! See y’all later!

Hummmm

The colours are just gorgeous on this garage door Humming Bird.

The flowers, insects… beautiful.

The alley’s garage doors are an outdoor gallery.

This row is across form a park. Past the park, both sides of the alley are lined with art. Timothy says he’ll do a 360. Next alley, or this one when I get back to it, I will take the needed shots!

Princess Blue Holly – 2

Princess Blue Holly is the first Superhero who changes outfits, crime dependant!

Above: Princess Blue Holly avenges Crimes Against Animals in her Cat-O-Nine Tails ensemble. The 9 tails braid themselves into 1 tail in the back, when not in use. Best not to get lashed with a tail! The ends are equipped w/ spiny holly leaves & poison berries. Scratches, with berry juice seeping in, will make you see the light.

It all began with Crazy Free Art to music. I wanted to draw PBH, but she already has an outfit. I went renegade, & just did what I felt like. It’s scribbly, but we thought this could be an outfit to avenge Eco Crimes, Monsanto specifically!

Holly & I are working on PBH, together. Click on the poem, and visit her blog!

Below: Princess Blue Holly decks out for a night of fighting Crimes in a City’s Dark Corners. Rapists, muggers & murderers watch out! She’ll clean your clocks w/ titanium boots featuring retracting needles loaded with concentrated poison berry venom.

 Some may remember PBH’s original outfit. It’s her default essence, and some would say her “Robin Hood” look. She can fight any crime in this look, and win. Note the eyepatch!

PBH’s eyes are digitally engineered. This is part of her back story. That will be revealed in a future episode. Her eyepatches can see in the dark, can see lies, can see for miles & miles & more … but only 1 eye ability at a time. Hence different patches, on each eye.

Princess Blue Holly will need an anthem. Holly will write the words, eventually. The music will come from..??? Well, Rene Rosso (© Resa & Holly) will do the vocals!

In the meantime let’s use this poem By Leonard Cohen… “ANTHEM”

“There is a crack in everything, That’s how the light gets in”

Great Performances

I heard of an interesting mural. When I got there, the building was torn down, & new construction underway.

I wandered lonely as a cloud, through high-rises and their lanes.

I turned into a parking lot, and found art performance fame.

High-rises, and the areas they are located in, are not prime street art venues.

Look how high up (about 18 stories) & huge this beauty is!

Did the best I could with my Iphone camera.

Two days later, and I’m still feeling the find.

This mural looks freshly done, so a plaque might be going up soon.

The Snail Lady

It’s a whole new appreciation for snails!

I would NEVER eat one.

Although they seem to make cute pets.

They are possibly good for your skin, but I haven’t googled that.

Eye had an epic failure trying to make a Snail Lady of my own.

Still, Eye got to try 3 new colours in a new brand of water colour pencils. What was Eye thinking? A Snail Lady with blue eyes?

Rhinos’ Playdate

This post is a loving tribute  to all Rhinos.

RHINOS

Gigi made Rhinos for Holly, Beth and Resa. Aren’t they beautiful? They each got to name their own Rhino.

They decided their Rhinos should meet for a playdate in a Flower Fairy Garden.

Of course, where there are flowers, there are butterflies. Hello, Butterfly Boa Lady here! Like me, the Rhinos will be adored by all butterflies.

 Runway belongs to Holly.

Rosy belongs to Resa.

Resa horned in with a little fun with Beth’s fun.

Roland belongs to Beth.

Resa scouted the garden, to make sure there were more than enough flowers for the Rhino’s, and that there would be plenty left for fairies and butterflies.
