Just realizing that, despite Instagramming about her work countless times, I’ve yet to post any of Old Broads‘ stickers on the blog.

Well, making up for that today… Absolutely LOVE her work!

March 6, 2015

You may remember that last First Friday I opened a Streets Dept Shop to begin selling limited-edition prints of my photos in monthly curated collections…

This month I’m excited to announce that for my 2nd collection I’ll be selling 5 of my favorite photos from Penn Treaty’s abandoned power plant (in 2 sizes, no less): CLICK HERE to view the prints in the shop!

Thank you again for all the support. I know I’ve been saying that a lot lately, but I really had no idea what to expect when I started selling my photos. You all, however, have erased any hesitation I had about trying this out. The first limited-edition collection received over 60 orders (over 100 prints in total.) I’m so grateful, thank you!

Inspired by a big hole in a fence that he spotted along South Broad Street (at Washington avenue) when seeing the Mummer’s this year, Philly glass artist Justin Tyner decided to create a stained glass ‘psychedelic portal’ along with the help of his son Hendrix and his son’s friend Adrianna… LOVE this!

Streets Dept Talk with Need In Deed at Independence Charter School

Earlier this month I was invited by Sharon Ahram of Need In Deed to speak to 4th graders at Graduate Hospital’s Independence Charter School about street art, graffiti, and the value of non-cooperate messages and imagery in our public spaces. And today, I received a handful of wonderfully illustrated Thank You notes from the kids!

This just absolutely warmed my heart, so I wanted to share. Especially love the card by one of the kids depicting Kid Hazo’s ‘Fist Pumping Ahead’ sign and ‘PPA Ticket.’

Thanks again to Sharon and to Independence Charter School for inviting me out to talk about something I’m so passionate about!

INCREDIBLE (and super weird/random) ice sculpture today found by Matty Lucas beneath the Columbia Bridge in Fairmount Park…

Check out Matty’s Instagram (@moiety12) to meet the artist, Don R. Harrison, who sculpted the piece by the light of his car’s headlights over the course of 7 hours last night!

I. Love. Philly… This is AMAZING!
