just call me mr. full of baloney

Dammit, after all my bitching about graffiti, I have to go and fall in love with this face. And after all my whining about Juxtapoz and modern art museums etc "promoting graffiti", I have to go and post this on my blog.

Just look at it. How can you not love it???

In principal, I know that it may very well be "garbage" to some people, perhaps the little old lady who lives in the second floor apartment and has to see this God-awful thing leering at her every time she steps out for a walk. In principal, I know that I cannot arbitrate beauty, so I have to say I would vote to smack the artist just like any other tagger.

But I can't help it. I love that face.

I understand. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that sort of thing...

I've seen some pretty cool graffiti now and again.

I am going to have to dig out the old National Lampoons (from somewhere between 1973 to 1978). This looks like a character in one of the comics.
