I love the "hello - my name is" sticker subgenre, not just because I get the eminem earworm of the my-name-is stuck in my head for the rest of the day, but because it's what stickers are all about for me: reclaiming public space by reusing common materials. That and "bringing the pretty" -as they say.

I'm not so good with stickers

The thing is, I'm not that good at photographing stickers, I'm sure it'll come with practice (which I hope to get plenty of when I get to Melbourne week after next) but for now here's a butterfly I caught in my net last weekend!

I'm not sure who it's by but I think it's pretty damn cool - it made such an impact that I actually dreamt about it last night (although in the dream it was a spider and I was trying to kill it with a shoe!)

BTW: The best bit of graffiti I've ever seen was just round the corner but it wasn't in such a cool spot. I'll post a photo of it taken straight on before my trip though promise and I'll try to get more stickers at the weekend!

Culture for dollars

I hope you've been able to sleep, what with all that trepidation an' all! I've been sleeping just fine but woke up super early this morning so as to fully exploit the sunshine - mission accomplished! My first sticker picture (or poster anyway but that’s close enough for me!)

I also took many more pics including two of my favourite graffiti pics to date! We’ll defo have to find somewhere to post them (besides finding room to hang them in my flat that is.)

I’m ready for my appreciation and glory now!
