Let the sun shine

The sun is back in London town! How long we have waited it’s hard to say but at least the good weather is here for the moment. And as it’s good to ‘make hay when the sun shines’ we thought we’d hit the streets for a little pasting action as you can never be sure if the weather will last or even if it will be back…

 

Girls Romances (wheatpaste)

The Girls Romances magazine cover is actually to be used in another piece but I thought it best to make a couple of copies for pasting up while I was using the screen. The magazine is surely a must read for any young lady – complete with an interview with Gary Barlow on his great new tantric sex-ercise technique!

We have featured the Graffiti Contract before but thought it too good a chance not to have a few more out on the streets.

Prosecute this! (wheatpaste)

When I was growing up I occasionally saw the graffiti ‘Bill Posters is innocent’ about the place and didn’t understand it until my dad explained the joke to me at some point. I reckon I must have thought he was some kind of Robin Hood figure who the police were after but had public opinion on his side. This obviously appealed to me and lodged in my mind and now, after a good deal of processing, has now manifested itself in this piece.

I selected the date of 1880 as after a little internet research it would appear that was the date the ‘Bill Posters is innocent’ joke first made it to print (apparently in The London Graphic) so it’s certainly not anything new. I like the fact it still works today though…

Wha Gwan? (wheatpaste)

Wha Gwan? (wheatpaste)

For the uninitiated, the phrase ‘Wha gwan’ (whaa gwaan) means ‘what’s going on’ in Jamaican Patois. The spelling varies but the meaning does not change. As we live in Brixton this is not an unusual phrase to hear around the place.

It’s 1 million % no-el from us!

It's 1 million % no-el from us!

I know this is late as it was obviously due to be completed in time to for Christmas. A little light partying just got in the way. Like they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Ah well, better late than never. We have had the X Factor judges heads cut from earlier in the year from a PR job that never quite got off the ground. Rather than let them go to waste we decided to have a little yuletide fun with the lilliputian likenesses of their heads. Oh what a lark!

We hope you had a good Christmas as we certainly did. Bring on New Year’s Eve!

Cheers
