yesterday, I did a different kind of hunting... graffiti hunting.
I am currently (and have been for about a year) obsessed with hunting graffiti by the elusive READ MORE BOOKS . it started with a huge roller piece on the side of my favorite building in nashville, the Marathon Village home of Corsair Artisan Distillery (former home of Yazoo Brewing).
A few months ago, we found this one -
and also this one -
then, when I was in New Orleans in November, I saw three that I was unable to get pics of.. but right as we were heading out of town...
so, recently this dude (dudes? I don't pretend to have a clue who/how many or really anything else about graffiti at all) is getting a lot more notice.. including a 10-page feature in JUXTAPOZ magazine.
There is a book (no, rilly?!) and a zine (that too?!) Which I bought myself for Christmas.
I didn't find the droids I was looking for, but I did find some cool places in my city I didn't know existed.. and then had a beverage where it all began.
