Banksy supports


So TOX gets a conviction while Banksy gets plexi-encasing.
It's a mad world.

Saber tee

Got this amazing tshirt in the post today - all the way from California!
The wicked print is by SABER and you can order one here.

I figured that if I'm gonna wear an American flag, at least it should be a defaced one! ;)

Another one coming.....

It's time again!
Time to come out and show your support; show that you care.

The next march is scheduled for the 30th June and they are already saying that some 700,000 people could join in on this one!

And remember - it's not about fighting with the police, it's about fighting for the country.
(Gosh that sounded very "leftie" but I'm just so tired of seeing the fighters being branded as vandals. They're not.)

Retna @ The Dairy

I biked over to The Dairy on my lunch break today to see Retna's exhibit.
High on expectations I guess I was a little disappointed..... even though I'd hate to say it.
His work is amazing, and the Dairy is a pretty cool venue too, but I'd hoped they'd do something extra with the space rather than just hanging the canvases on white walls.

On top of that, when I got there, the door to the warehouse was open but there was absolutely no one there and all the lights were off!
I ended up seeing all the work in the dark, appart from the little light coming in from outside.
In a sense I guess that was nice too as Retna is from the beginning a graff writer and it then made the works feel more "real and in its real place" - in a dark warehouse.
