I found a golden one like this about a year ago.

I always think of pussycats when I hear this.
Christina Mazzulla is a wonderful artist, with a particular passion for her Vudu Cats.
I adore all cats. They are earth’s most capable hunters. The skull on this kitty’s head makes sense.
I wonder what cat people think?
This Vudu Cat is all cozy in hand knit sweater, and surrounded by flowers, bunnies and hearts.
This graf mural is a collaboration with C. Mazzulla & Wysper.
I can totally read his writing.
Not sure who the artist of the below is. It’s right beside Vudu Cat. Mandala like, it made me think of Stephan Graham at Mandala Vihara

I have only posted one other piece of what looks like street art, but it’s actually advertising something.
Obviously this mural is advertising Jimmy’s Coffee. Jimmy’s Coffee is a local Toronto business that began in 2009. It has several outlets now.
It’s a well done black and white mural, with the coffee cups in bright yellow. I am presenting the mural both as is, and through different filters.
I like the all black and white best.
The portraiture looks fab to me!
Jimi Hendrix & Jimmy Page …. 2 fantastic guitar players!

There are only 3 other indoor murals in my collection. Oddly enough they are portraits of famous people. They decorate a pool hall in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
They are: Bogey & Elvis, Marylin Monroe & James Dean and The Duke & Brando
They were posted in 2015. Click on the pics to visit the posts!
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!

This doorway mural was painted during the onset of the lockdown.
Hi! Here I am first time out socially, in 12 weeks. It was great to see 2 family members.
I’ve decided to grow out my grey hair. That thing in the centre of my chest is a bottle of hand sanitizer on a lanyard. I wear OS men’s shirts as a form of PPE. I hand painted my mask.
I’ve been reading more than usual. Check out my Art Gowns review of 5 of Shehanne Moore’s Historical Romance novels, by clicking on the book cover below!
I can’t get enough of gowns, especially in a romantic historic setting . I can’t get enough of street art.
There must be a correlation?
I also enjoyed reading Mike Steeden’s The Blue-Eyed Cat
Let me know what you’ve enjoyed reading during your time on hold!

The Artist: Unsigned
Here’s a promo for Mike Steeden’s new book; The Snow White Tigress. It was made by George, over at Zoolon Hub If you are a writer, and would like a promo made with original music, check him out! Very reasonable prices.
I’m staying home, mostly. I’ve got a myriad of creative projects on the go & 2 cats to boss me around.
