A different kind of graffiti.

Thanks to a tip from a fellow Flickr user, I managed to get some pics of a few posters that have been pasted up in the creekways of Prescott. I'm sure it won't be long until they are covered under a few layers of paint like the rest of the graffiti in the city.


This one was found by the old railroad bridge near the intersection of Sheldon and Montezuma st:


Underneath the Gurley street bridge over Granite Creek:


And the final one under the Goodwin street bridge over Granite Creek:


As an added bonus, I finally snapped a pic of this Obey poster by the Old Firehouse Plaza. It has been there for a few months, which somewhat surprises me..:


These are a fun divulgence from the standard paint type of graffiti. I especially enjoy them because they allow the artist to spend however long they want designing, so you generally get a more interesting image than somebody who spraypaints their name on a wall. :) Now I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more of these around town.

good stuff! grab your ankles. yeah.

I really like graffiti. I see a lot of it here in southern california (duh) and am sometimes blown away by the beauty and intricacy of it. I even tried sketching that style for a while myself but didn't have a good enough knack for it.

Somebody produced a small decal that you find around and about, celebrating the raven. Actually, there is an assortment of these b&w decals that I've seen.

Melissa - We don't get to see too much around here, so I always take photos of whatever I can find. :) And I'm with you on creating it... it takes a skill which I do not possess.

GrannyJ - I'll have to keep my eyes open for them, and post them as I find them. :)
