2909. Waterloo Street (2)

The journey through my archives continues with this amazing (yes another one) cartoon piece by Deamze. A short while ago I wrote about the Asterix piece on this wall by the same artist, which I photographed in 2018. This one photographed in January 2018 features a similar wildstyle writing mash up of Scooby Doo.

Those pesky kids appear in the writing (spelling out DEAMZ) as recognisable body parts. From left to right we have Velma Dinkley and Shaggy Rogers (is there a hidden adult gag in his name?).

Next in line we have Scooby Doo and thank goodness without the dreadful spin-off Scrappy Doo, with the ’70s hunk Fred Jones next in line – what was that red scarf all about?

Finally the lovely but slightly boring Daphne Blake and to her right the iconic Mystery Machine. As a group the characters were known as Mystery Incorporated. Scooby Doo was required viewing for my generation, and the cartoon series appears to have had an extraordinarily long shelf-life. Amazing really for a story line that is pretty much identical in every episode.

Deamze is utterly amazing in the way he creates these composite pieces with such accuracy and style. An outstanding piece, which might still be there, I haven’t been that way for a while.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
