Ladies. Gents. My last two posts were a tad verbose... so I'm reining in the voluminous petticoats for now. What can I say-- I get carried away...
But passion for literature is in the air! Just take a look at these photos from a recent Flavorwire article. The photos have been gathered from around the world and feature literary references in graffiti.

Although more socially accepted, the criminal element of graffiti is still present today. I feel like the content of graffiti pieces has expanded in this new and slightly uncomfortable limbo of acceptance/illegality.

|Aldous Huxley in Montreal, Canada|
|Pablo Neruda in Santiago, Chile|
What are your thoughts on the state of graffiti art? Don't you love these images? My favorite is the Lord Byron stencil...
Until next time, fair petticoat wearers!
