Homecoming ... Queens!
This past weekend found us back in the real Area 718, in all its potholed glory. I snapped these shots in the car from Brooklyn to Queens.
The Obey sticker campaign:
Loved this mural. I couldn't get it all in the photo, but the inscription on the red paint coming from the paintbrush reads, "We are not government issued." The inscription on the lower left reads, "Think for yourself."
I took the following photos while riding the LIRR through Queens into Manhattan. Graffiti against a combination of textures -- concrete, exposed brick, and (rusting) metal -- made for an urban distressed look that inspired me. I really liked how the paint colors interacted with the existing landscape.
