straight outta winton

Tonight all of my shrooms and weeds have popped up around winton high street and down the residential roads. I felt that i'm going to start off close and slowly stretch out to a wide area. I don't want to be doing this on a weekly basis, as it will become tiresome and predictable. Monthly i will bring out my designs so depending how long they last before someone rips them down, people will be looking out for them.

I've had mixed thoughts about pasting around Bournemouth, firstly i was very keen as it was somewhere new. But then when i first went out several months ago, i didn't find it as enjoyable. I just wasn't feeling it, there isn't a great amount of work from other people around town but then maybe i could change that. Tonight is the first night i've gone out with a selection of relevant work focusing on organic forms that we consider to be waste. 
But after a while i felt good about it again, like i used to when i was constantly wheat pasting. I don't know why i felt strange about it for a while, i think perhaps i found it hard to realise with my personal work i can use it for uni work. 
I always like placing some of my work near someone elses, i doubt you can really call this "THC" work, but i guess this crap tag is shown up by something different and not expected.
I placed most of my work in places where it blended in or it stood out. A woman walked past me and said in a sarky way "Do you need any help there? I think you do.." 
i just looked at her, and said i think i'm alright. She would be one of those people who won't ever understand what i do, it didn't matter that i was wheat pasting dainty flowers or tagging "fuck" on the wall, she didn't approve. That's the demise in out race ha, i want to make people appreciate the littlest of gestures.
I think the minimal selected part of colour works, as otherwise there could be too much going on, the simpler the better i feel.
Here's the rest of the photos, i won't put them all on here, but you can view the others on my...

The kernel loves it.

By the way, i don't have some weird obsession with fungas, it's just pretty fun to draw.
