It’s Banksy week! Hopefully I can keep it up. Creating images, cutting stencils, and spray-painting is a big process - one that I’m TOTALLY enjoying, but it’s also pretty time-consuming. I'm fairly sure I’m doing everything a little bit wrong, using methods that are probably quite inefficient compared to the pros – but I’m still having a lot of fun, especially for a beginner.

For my very first “I’m going to pretend I’m a street artist” stencil, I decided to stay simple. 
I copied Banksy’s signature stencil and used it to create my own "signature":

I cut it out of some posterboard I had lying around. It’s nice and sturdy, making it so fun and easy to run up to something and tag it quickly. Again, I’d like to add the disclaimer that I’m not actually tagging buildings…I only meant that it’s a quick and simple process with a very clean, consistent result every time. I pulled a few fun items out of my favorite dumpster at work (the one where we dispose of furniture and lamps and objects, rather than typical “trash”) and just went to town! I sprayed my name on everything, it was so ridiculous and fun. I had no idea I would enjoy it that much! I highly recommend tagging. (You know, in a wholesome, rule-followy kind of way.)


I know it's not great to tag a book. 
But it was in the dumpster already and it had been rained on the night before.
(Mom, that disclaimer was for you. I know how much you love books and hate graffiti, 
and you're probably wincing at the sight of this.)

I liked the guitar neck so much that I kept it and added it to my mantle in my office at work:

  2. It’s easy to forget now, but the Wings lost 421 man-games to injury last season. Stephen Weiss missed 56. Darren Helm missed 40. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg each missed 37. Johan Franzen missed 28. Jonas Gustavsson missed 22. Danny DeKeyser missed 17. Daniel Alfredsson missed 14. Jimmy Howard missed 13. Justin Abdelkader missed 12. The list goes on.Only 27 times did the Wings have both Datsyuk and Zetterberg in the lineup. In the second half of the season, the Wings played largely without two of the best two-way players in new nike nfl jerseys hockey. Datsyuk played 10 games after Jan. 1. Zetterberg played zero games after Feb. 8.At the general managers meeting last month, Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen tried to put his own injury epidemic in perspective in terms of man-games lost. “One of my colleagues upstairs told me that if you have 400 or 300-and-something, you cheap sale jerseys have no chance of making the playoffs,” he said.Yet wholesale jerseys shop the NFL Jerseys Store Wings made it last season, anyway. The real surprise was that team, not this one. The Wings relied on kids and NFL Jerseys call-ups, particularly Gustav Nyquist, who started the season in the minors because of a logjam and ended up leading the team jerseys store in goals with 28. He scored 23 in 28 games from Jan. 20 to April 2. The Wings also spackled a hole by trading for veteran center David Legwand at the deadline because they didn’t have enough healthy bodies down the middle.
