...and plenty of it. I can't imagine what someone was thinking when they installed this on a
home in Old Town.
"Life is just a party, and parties weren't meant to last". From Prince's "1999".

Underutilized and Overgrown
Just one more in a line of barns facing an
unfortunate fate. Standing, but for how long,
on the Hickory Grove Stock Farm in suburban
This bit of art is a tribute dedicated to the memory
of street artist Fausto Manzera, also known as
"Afroe" and "Afroe 42".
Manzera and his friend, fellow artist Andrew
Cazares, were involved in a fatal auto accident when the car they were in was struck from behind by a drunk driver.
Artists around the city have posted tributes
such as this one near areas where Afroe and Cazares, known as "Evol",
left their mark.

Happy Mother's Day, mom.
Twin Tin Men
I'm not sure but I believe these are small scale
grain or corn storage bins. Seen at a deserted
farm in the Lockport area.
Thank goodness I'm not human.
The slicks are biting, the nose goes up, the
car's dancing on the rear bumper and the
driver just sees sky while hoping the landing doesn't hurt too much. A day at the drags.
Gulliver In Wonderland
That's the title of this mural by Hector Duarte
which is located on his studio in Pilsen.
It shows Gulliver as a Mexican immigrant held
down by barbed wire.
The Writing's On The Wall
Of course, it was the tag that caught my eye but
what held my attention after really looking at the photo was what almost looked to be an abstract painting, with the bluish concrete and the various cover up shades.
