The Best Street Art of 2010


(Above: Photo of a ROA Brooklyn squirrel by Jake Dobkin of Gothamist.)

There are a lot of slide shows out there, but I love this one from Luna Park! (Since most of the photos were taken right here in NYC.) I'm particularly fond of the cat-eating girl. (Call me sick if you'd like.)

Here's another cool one.

My New Year's resolution is to take more street art photos of my own. There's an amazing work about a block away from my house, and I haven't gotten around to take picture of it!

I think it was through your blog where I was introduced to street art. Since then, I'm always finding little hidden pieces around my city. It always makes me feel a little happier that someone put in effort to create a piece that although not everyone will see, those who do will feel special for noticing it.

Btw, it was about time the two blogs merged :) I'm glad you did, it'll be much easier to follow.

Thanks BC. You live in a good city for street art, too!

Those are so cool. It's funny, because in art class at school we were taught how to write our name graffiti style, which I can do pretty well. I'm hopeless when it comes to actual drawing.

My favorite picture is the one with the child Lady Liberty who's picking her nose. It made me laugh.

I like how you combined the new blog, but is there ANY way to make it black? because it reminds me of medicine. I like everything else though
