Cutlure Watch around Yellow Springs

Keith's Alley, Yellow Springs, Ohio

Sometimes I just like to wander around town and especially Keith's alley to see what new mural or graffiti has gone up. I love this artists work (RAC mentioned in the Dayton Daily News). He also did the side of Bentino's on the bike trail. I'm really happy to see some more of his work around town. Under the layers on the next wall is my first and last attempt at spray can graffiti, which may I add got painted over pretty quickly by some primo graffiti :) Think I will stick with the knit/textile graffiti/tagging and the occasional jafabrit sticker art.

Hi, I really like your blog and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

If you could add me as a link or give the project a mention I would be really grateful.

The odd things abiyt graffiti is that the style of painting is pretty much te sme around the world. This photo could ahve easily been taken in Alicante.

I wonder what that is Philip? Could it be the same phenomenon as everyone has the same image of what an alien looks like (remarkably similar to a fetal skeleton). They have seen it so much it becomes part of their minds eye.
