Call Me Slow...

...but I couldn't figure out why I got ID'd when I bought spray paint in Oakland yesterday. It took me a while, but eventually I pieced it together. My spray paint is simply for a picture frame project, but if I were going to attempt some graffiti, I would forego the obscenities and aim for something more along these lines:


I couldn't think of an appropriate graffiti-related use for the pink spray paint I bought yesterday. This might do the trick.

I've never even tried painting a circle with spray paint, let alone a cool image like this.

Perhaps the coolest garage door in town.

And for those who are bored with more traditional form of graffiti, how about a graffiti sculpture?

I'm trying to finish up the nursery today, without getting into trouble with my spray paint. Have a great day!

ha ah!! too funny!
i don't know why you're surprised, i mean, a pregnant 20/30 something woman is the typical person who will get out in the middle of the night to do some graffities in the neighborhood...no?

I think you guys are right. Maybe after my picture frames are done, I'll sneak out for a little midnight fun with my leftover paint. I think the neighborhood would look great with a little high-gloss hot pink and baby yellow. It would definitely soften things up a bit around here. :)

Banksy is one of my all time favorite artists. There is always such a great statement and really quite eye opening! www.banksy.co.uk

I've always loved Banksy and did a double-take when I clicked on your site today :-) Good luck with the nursery!
