How fantastic, a classic piece of Hire writing with the inclusion of one of his rabbit characters, still looking as unsettling as ever with its narrow eyes and huge teeth. I am so pleased that he continues with his work, albeit not as frequently as when I first encountered him. In this picture you might notice a rather irritating bit of fencing with a blue tarp attached to it. It has been in Dean Lane since they started developing the building next to the skate park, but it has been abandoned, and is really bloody irritating. I think it needs to be removed into the street, but it is more than a one-man job.

Hire’s letters have softened a little in recent months, but still have that characteristic sharp and pointy edge thing going on, always with an underlying edge or threat, which graffiti always lends itself to so well. I like this piece, it kind of reminds me of when I first met Hire several years ago.
