They say that the devil makes work for idle hands. Luckily we’ve got alcohol to keep those idle hands busy in between bouts of creating.
Being the ironic street artists that we are we’ve decided to put paean to alcohol on a derelict pub. Take that society! No more idle hands kept busy in there. The devil will have to find something else for them to do…
I think i’m finally getting a bit of a better idea of how to work the video editing software which is definitely a good thing. We have already done a post on Jealousy (see here) but i have now managed to work the video into something watchable. Our green eyed monster was a quick hit (well – quick for us at about 45 minutes) on an abandoned wall. He’s about 8ft tall and definitely has something of a worrying look in his eyes…
Whilst nosing around we found a nice little couple of walls to work on so decided to set to work. ‘Jealousy’ is about 8 foot tall and we managed to get it done surprisingly quickly (well, for us anyway!)
Jealousy – stage 1
Jealousy – final
Whilst having a look around the site we found a broken and rusted window frame which i though would look good if hung on a nail with a stencil behind it. Hey presto! A couple of minutes later and this is what we had.
3 legs – framed
Bird behind bars – framed
Whilst I was stood there with a stencil in my hand when i realised what a nice silhouette it made on the wall. After a couple of attempts we got these shots which i like.
For this second one i got out the second part to the stencil (which is the body of the bird) and then sprayed that on the wall and then held the other stencil over it to get the silhouette. The thing i like most about this one is that the red stencil will look odd on the wall on it’s own and nobody will be able to work out it’s signifcance…
