Locked Down, Again

I’ve never started a post with a reflection, before. Yet, it works for me here.

I can only go where I can walk. So, I have been going down some seedier, more neglected alleys. This beat up piece grabbed me.

The red eyeball looks like a tag.

She’ still a beauty.

It’s not just the art, it’s the entire performance of junk penning it in.

I’ve got lots of street art saved/hoarded, so should be posting new stuff for awhile.

Also, there’s a lot of early posts, that only 3 or 4 people got to see. Could always do a few of the best.

I got a commission to draw a pencil portrait of Frankenstein. Why not? I’m perfect for the job, as I draw a female super hero (Princess Blue Holly), a Torch Singer in Gowns, (Rene Rosso), Art Gowns Models in gowns, and a 1960’s Go-Go Dancer in cool mini dresses (Boogapony Holly).

It’s not quite finished, and I took this today. Today is almost as dark as night. Perfect for Frankenstein!

Cat’s Third Eye is a Gem

Found this on a garage door a few blocks from home.

I’d like to hit some other alleys in the city, but I won’t take public transportation to get there and back.

I can do a 3 – 4 hour walk.

A few times I got a ride from N to a place where it’s a 4 hour walk back home.

Fortunately, I have lots of pics stashed!

The Artists?

A Verrie Sherrie Hallowe’en

I hope this doesn’t terrorize you all, too much!

But if you have the nerves for it, sit back, relax and enjoy the hell ride!

Oh, so hideous!!!

Blinded you with the last one, eh? Well we’ll just have to work in B&W until our retinas recover!

Giant insects

Lizards … I like lizards, unless it’s

GODZILLA

Who thinks of these things? Vincent Price? Boris Karloff?

Tim Burton?

Horror comes in many more forms. Yet, what could be more horrifying to man or woman than wearing

this hideous bondage costume on Hallowe’en?

Dedicated to my dear niece (daughter I never had) Sherrie. Hallowe’en is her fave!

AND THE WINNER OF RESA’S MOST HORRIFYING STREET ART FIND OF 2020

HELP! It’s me, Neil Young, and I’m melting!

Girl with Guitar

This was a challenge to shoot.

It had been raining off and on, this day. From how dry the cement was under the white car, I figured the person must work at Long and McQuade.

I hung around anyway. Eventually, the red car moved.

Did my best without a direct on shot.

 

Here’s my fave girl with a guitar. I always thought this song was titled Mermaid Cafe. I also just realized, Joni plays a dulcimer in this song. Oh well!

The piece is unsigned, but the guitar is a Les Paul

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!

Rest in Flowers

This garage door art made gasp out loud from its beauty.

Part way through making this post, I heard about the passing of Eddie Van Halen.

So, I dedicate this post to Eddie.

Guitar is my fave instrument. I dated drummers, bass players, keyboardists, horn players and singers. For me, there’s nothing like a hot guitar player.

Rest in Flowers! RIFF, Eddie!

The Artist:

You can feel his fingers on those strings and on the fret board! He was a true rock guitar artist.

Makes me feel even more honoured to have some of my one-eye art, on Art Guitars custom made & played by Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even

Abstract Art Guitar art – Tumultuous is by Tiffany Arp-Daleo.
