Bonjour from the future

This one looks very much like it’s another P.S. painting.

Not as bright, but still surviving in the lane, are a couple of older faces

“Keep yo head out the clouds” to which someone has responded.  At first I thought the response was “Nah, Rock that cloud.” but on closer inspection I see that I am wrong.  I like my answer better!

Hey!  There’s something new in Graffiti Alley! 
It comes in many disguises.  Or maybe there are many different ones, an invasion of sorts.

I’m not sure if they have names.
But there is little chicken guy, in fact there are two of them!  Birds of a feather they are.

red zombie with exposed brains

below:  I just call this one Iron.  I think I caught him in the act of tagging the wall.  If he looks something like a video game character, well, I’m sure that’s just coincidence.

Mario brothers parody I think, yellow shirt, blue pants and a moustache
below: This little  storm trooper, policeman sort of guy is being watched.  All police need oversight?  Is this a political statement?

below:  Michaelangelo was always my favorite.  He’s the one in orange.

 below:  This little wizard has lost his wand but he can’t see where he’s going so he’s hopelessly lost and can’t find the wand, or anything else for that matter.

below: Zombie guy!  Watch out Alley, your brains are in danger!


below: The force is probably strong with these guys

two rotund figures that are supposed to look like white storm troopers seen in the Star Wars movies
