simon gets around a bit….

10 Apr

I think a lot of people are pissed at the weather lately. They miss the hot weather, the sun, the beach trips. I for one am loving this cold change. The sky is overcast, the breeze is nippy and I can finally sleep at night and get around without dying in a puddle of my own sweat. Oh winter, you approach fast! And I love you for it!

Took a little trip around the city yesterday and managed to spot a few more degroot traffic boxes. I love him too.

This was on the corner of George and Margaret St as you walk towards QUT:

And this was on the corner of George and Alice Street:

They really need to clean the bottom of these bad boys…

It’s starting to get to a point where I’d kill for a print of some of his work. I might have to take some close up shots of these and get the photos developed on a crazy big scale for framing.

so many ways to play!

Ahh Duplo, Lego’s bigger cousin that gets along really well with small children, you can be used for such amusement.

Or, as I saw while walking home last night (with a few vodkas, wines and beers under my belt, “All the food groups” as I’ve been told), I spotted this colourful Duplo… code? above some glassless windows on a building facade (just the facade remains, there’s no building to it) on Brunswick Street just up from the Judith Wright Centre.

Curious….

I wonder what it stands for, anyone know?:

God I hope Brisbane just became home to a really creative street artist.

Naaaw, plus, check out the Ricky Martinesque DILF at the beginning!:

You may remember Guido, the artist who did the traffic box with the monkeys on it from this post here.

Well, I found another, on the corner of Wickham and Gipps Streets in the Valley. I have to say, he has to be one of my favourites, I love the detail, there’s something so lifelike, yet cartoony about his work.

Once again my love of animals that think they’re people keeps being piqued.

This was on the return trip from a morning of Homemaker City frivolity, we passed this traffic signal box on Wickham Street. Then I backtracked and got a photo of it while Kevin, full of shame, kept walking ahead.

Neither Tarzan, Sigourney Weaver or George of the Jungle were anywhere to be seen unfortunately.

hunting rabbits

I love these little guys, sitting in the window of an art gallery on Brunswick St. Part sculptural hunting dog, part taxidermied rabbit.

So if you’ll excuse me, I’m off hunting with my very own hunting rabbit and its cute little origami paper saddles.

What’s this? Another traffic signal box? You guessed it ladies (and gentlemen, I guess).

This colourful little number outside the ANZ on the corner of Creek and Queen Street is painted by Alena Petkov, and I don’t think it’s a big coincidence she shares her last name with the artist of this work. They totally have to be related.

Very psychadelic. Woah. I think I’m…. freaking out….
