I wouldn’t have a staring contest with this guy if I were you.

When I walked down Graffiti Alley yesterday, I discovered quite a few new things that I hadn’t seen before.  There were too many for one blog post so I decided to concentrate on the little things this morning.

below: Little stickers stuck all over a piece of metal.  My favorite is the “All my friends are awesome” sticker.

below: The window on this wonderful orange door was covered with stickers and spray paint.  These three stickers were in the bottom corner.

below: Pasteup collages with pictures of Campbells soup labels, and old camera, and a coca cola bottle.  A woman is yelling something in Russian while Lenin peaks out from behind her.  Meaning?  Maybe only Merz knows?

And now this blog post is all over too.

What did we see on Sunday was we walked along Roncesvalles?  There’s lots to look at here, it’s worth a stroll.  We decided to keep our eyes open for little details, the ones easily missed.  This blog post is a collection of some of the smaller graffiti we found.

below: Drooling is a sign of affection not of infection…. warning, I’ll probably not take this advice to heart if you start drooling in my face.

below: The Uber 5000 little yellow birdie has big dreams, perhaps even supreme dreams.

two stickers on the side of Bell telephone booth one just has the word supreme and the other is an uber 5000 yellow birdie holding two words in red letters,

below: Dreaming’s done, time to eat.   Even birds get hungry.

below: I can’t decipher the writing over the head – cracklyaid? cracklyard? crackbyard? So we have a mystery artist who drew a cute green alligator with something in his hand and something green on his head.

a sticker on the side of a grey metal box, a green alligator like character, walking on two legs, with a green head on top (two heads), drawn on white background that had words printed on it.

below: Look! Urban Ninja Squadron has put on a shirt and tie.  He’s looking almost respectable in those glasses but he can’t fool us, that pooh hat gives him away!

a large tbonez pasteup of an urban ninja squadron character, head and shoulders, but wearing a shirt and tie and blue rimmed glasses, also a brown pooh hat on his head.

below: Ah! Now this is more like the Urban Ninja Squadron that I know.   Here he is taking flight with the help of a drone (droning on?).  Beside him (and running away?) is a little guy from slole.

two pasteups on a plywood board on hoardings, one is an urban ninja squadron character holding onto a drone in flight and the other is a simplistic man with a frowny face, an its all over character, both are in black and whtie

below: Many stickers and paste-ups from slole (slole-slaps) have appeared around Roncesvalles.   Here is one on a bench.  The pumpkin head seems appropriate for the season.  “It’s all over” appears on most of his/her work.

A few more from “it’s all over”.  (Does the title of this blog post) make a bit more sense now?

And now this blog post is all over too.
