MKWF has put this great collection of Bristol handstyles up on his blog. It's very simple, very lovely, shows the huge diversity of talent and variety in the city, I love it. Have a look here, and then spend some time on his blog, it's a nice one.
The Sickboy Show is still on at the Friend and Co gallery, until 27th February

And the best thing about being home (apart from the fact I can't here my neighbours in the beathroom or the bedroom) is walking past the Deaner and seeing brand new graff! This is by Midas, on this wall:
Also this, by Deamz and Ziml:
This was something I found through the superb Urban Art trail, put together by Guillermo de Madrid for the Unofficial Tourism strand of Madrid Abierto - we'd passed the end of the street a few nights before, but hadn't gone down it, which would've been gutting if I hadn't seen this. I didn't see Guillermo's blog until this morning, which was our last in Madrid, but I wish I'd seen it earlier, it's full of amazing things, you should definitely look. (Massive thanks to dug da bug for pointing me in that direction, and also for all the info on Madrid writers)
(We only found the Unofficial Tourism caravan on our penultimate day, otherwise I would have done all the tours... especially the "bars over 100 years old" tour... and the flourescent lights tour.... and the rest of the urban arts tour.... The thing I liked best about it the brochure, though, was the words about the Cañada Tour - really hard-hitting)
Anyway, I'm back in Bris now, with about 11 films to develop and a massive backlog of Madrid graff - as I get around to it, I'll put it up in my flickr set if you're interested - but in the meantime, here's a wall we found earlier today...

Break out your yellow and red paint and all your secret temples! Sickboy's back in town!
He's having a show at the Friend & Co Gallery (in their new venue, *not* the little small Glos Road one) starting Friday and lasting til the end of the month
You can see more of Sickboy's fabulous work here - and more about the show here. God, I love Sickboy's stuff, he's one of the reasons I got into graff in the first place, him and Jef Row. I miss his stuff being around Bristol, it made me grin and feel a bit happier to see his temples, even on the dullest days. Anyway, my pics of his stuff here

OK, all I know about this one is that the amazing Soker, the absolute king of Wildstyle, is having a show tomorrow at the Golden Lion Pub on the Gloucester Road. No idea what time it starts (guessing maybe 7? 8?) assuming some kind of music and painting, and I *think* it's on for 4 weeks.
But everyone should go, just in case, because Soker is incredible, I love the way he just rocks up and makes the most amazing lettering, beautiful style. My pics of his stuff here
This photo is from 45rpm, not taken by me. Under it, he says
"Just got around to making a fanzine of my trip to New York New York. Loads of graffiti photos from Earsnot, Nekst, ATG, Ja one etc etc.
You can view it online and download it for free in the link below, over 100 full colour photos..."
And you do really need to look at it, it's amazing

There's got to be perfect place to take this shot from... aside from the student flats it's got to be aimed at....
