We found Sensi in both places we went this past weekend. I think that warrants a post:

The Evolution of 6th & Cecil B. Moore

6th & Cecil B. Moore

A few months ago, Pipelines and myself got to head over to 6th & Cecil B. Moore. On the side of this building was an awesome mural that had Neo-Geo Evangelion painted on the side, which has been around for at least 4 years, if not longer. I remembered a friend of mine posting photos and I immediately fell in love with it. Sadly, the original piece is gone, but the replacement is still incredibly sweet!

From Uncle Moneybags from Monopoly to the awesome Tex Avery-style bears to even The Hungry Caterpillar, this piece is full of some of the coolest characters around! The colors are amazingly vibrant and fun, and really, I don’t know what else there is for me to say about it! Its always a joy whenever the owners of a building let the artists do something amazing to bring life to a community! Dudes, keep it up!

Smurfing It Up in North Philly!

While Pipelines and myself were trying to get some shots on Cecil B. Moore in North Philly, we stumbled upon 3 old-school taggers hitting up a spot around 7th street. We spoke to them for a bit, and we plan on spilling some details in the next few weeks. After the Hurricane, we’ll (hopefully) be able to get more about all of this.

For now, enjoy the results of their labor and SMURF IT UP!
