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”

South of Bloor and Ossington, I thought “I”ll just peek into this alley”.

Flowins #1

I got that neat feeling….  I’ve discovered something.

Flowins #2

I think it’s an Urban version of things rooted in the beauty of nature.

Here is the rest of one of the historical murals by artist, John Kuna that make Toronto beautiful. I had been so excited when I found it, that I came home and hastily posted just one pic in the oxymornically titled post Vintage Youth

Thanksgiving

A Special “Happy Thanksgiving” to all my American friends!

This Historical Mural in Islington Village imparts to me the feeling of waiting for the delicious meal mother has begun cooking. I find this mural full of pioneer spirit, and family value which I send to you in lieu of a mural depicting an actual Thanksgiving feast.

This 2-storey high mural is on a house on a hill. That was a challenge for my IPhone!
