Obsessions - Graffiti

I know the graffiti train came and went a few years ago with Banksy and Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton line, but I'm still on board. I will always be on board. I have been known to spend some quality time on the Art Crimes website - where you can view graffiti from all over the world. Here are some recent favorites:

I hope everyone is having a good week. I am settling into my new job. There are a lot of challenges with learning a new job in a new culture - and yes, England is a totally different culture than America - don't let the similarities fool you. Mostly, I just feel very self-conscious about using different expressions and phrases. I said something yesterday and the response I got was, "that's very American, but sounds about right"... awkward silence.  Everyone I work with is very nice and they are doing all they can to help me feel at home. Even though we have been here a year, I have not had much interaction with people, so it's all new and different. And exciting. And terrifying. And exhausting. On that note ... off to bed.

The Art Crimes website will blow your mind. I keep looking for Banksy stuff in London, but have not seen any yet. You can do tours in London, but I would rather just happen upon it. I have had other people say the same about the cultural stuff, so I'll be writing more about it. Good to know what people want to know about!
