Chicago Street Art Part 3

As I take my train ride down to the loop every day, the one thing that makes the train ride truly enjoyable is watching the beautiful art show out the window. Art museums are cool and all but personally, I find street art to be much more interesting. In an attempt to preserve some of the art before our tax dollars are used on removing it or covering it with some extremely plain beige color, here are some photos.

Sick spot, sick colors, sick piece. Nuff' said.

This dude is insane, one of my favorite writers hands down. It's almost impossible to take a ride on the CTA and not see EDEM sprayed on something, written on something, or carved into something. He is everywhere.

EDEM piece got buffed but you get the idea.

This sweet piece just popped up a few days ago, by MUSH/MUSHY/MUSHROOM/whatever else he writes. The colors pop in these pieces, love it.

It's almost hard to walk around Chicago without seeing at least one of these. I totally dig the message, and the fact that you rarely see FORGIVE on a wall and pretty much always on a sidewalk definitely makes for a unique style.

Yet Another Take on the Chicago Skyline

I just moved into a new apartment in Lincoln Park and to my pleasant surprise I discovered that we have an amazing view of the skyline from our roof. I was sitting up there the other night drinking some tea and figured i would take a photo...

If Alex were a supermodel..

Well this is Alex. I love him. That's pretty much all I have to say about this. I guess this post is mostly just directed towards him but if anyone else feels inclined to stalk Alex's life and would like to see the rest of the photos hit up the flickr. And if you are so mesmerized by his beauty that you feel you need to meet the man himself and possibly date him, you can hit him up on facebook here.

Project Waldo: Part II

A friend asked me to take some pictures for him at a party he was having. His nickname is waldo so it came to be known as Project Waldo. This was the second bash he had, and they were both an awesome time. Here's a few random shots, to see the rest go to my flickr.
