    I love Mr. Blob and his “eye”. I usually associate you two together now as a couple when you write your posts. Who knew there was such an expansive street art mural to go with him!

      I was surprised how detailed the mural is! It’s so colorful, it makes me smile when I pass it 🙂

    Finally the answer to the great avatar question!! Great stuff. I really like street art. In many big cities it’s all grey and nasty looking walls.

    Street art really adds a certain “soul” element to a city. I wish more city officials would see this, rather than wash them away!

      So true! Have you seen any interesting street art in your travels or your current home in Malaysia?

    I thought this was from an upcoming remake of the movie Mars needs women. I was looking forward to the movie, but now I see it is only street art.

    Great article on Mr. Blob. He looks like a cross between an illustration in a children’s book and a creature in a horror movie. Hope you discover the artist!

    this is what I love the most about NY, people are artistic and free, I also like the inspiration behind it. I find a lot of inspiration from my two sisters all the time to when I write, they just crack me up sometimes though.

    He really seemed to have put a lot of effort into this mural, a little crazy, but hey…that’s what art is about right?

    Oh and I don’t know who the artist is, and we’ll probably wont know either I bet.

    Ah so that’s how your avatar look like up close! I’ve always only seen a small thumbnail version of it and wondered what or who it was you were taking picture with! 🙂 It’s heartwarming to know that the gorgeous artwork was for someone’s sister. I can feel the love already 😉

      Hi Paul- thanks for the tip! I checked out 2501’s page and the work seems similar. I didn’t spot any alien art though 😉

    The blob with the single eye sort of looks like the red alien character from Yo Gabba Gabba who is a blob with a single eye. Now you know what’s on my TV during the day!

    I love the color palette in the pink piece. LOVE! Austin is still very behind in regards to street art so I have to enjoy vicariously through you. 🙂

    Love the pink one as well. It looks like amoeba’s, and different cell types, etc… mingling. Sort of random/cool for street art.
