Flashes of light brown

darting through the dense thickets;

1718. Dean Lane skate park (162)

What a lovely surprise this was in Dean Lane, a small piece from Skor85 squeezed in between some other works on the long wall. I haven’t seen anything from her in quite a while, so it was good to stumble across this one.

An interesting perspective of a dog in which the bare teeth are somehow brought into sharp focus by the blood-red background. A slightly scary piece, but really nicely presented. I like Skor85’s work very much – there is an ‘other worldly’ feel to it all…dreams and nightmares.

This is a fine three-way collaboration on the long wall at Dean Lane between ‘No Frills’ stablemates, Slimpickings, Biers and Howl. Whatever your views on writing, this is an incredibly neat and tidy collaboration which is really easy on the eye.

I don’t know much at all about Slimpickings, but have seen quite a lot of his work around the place recently (to follow). I haven’t seen enough of his work or had the opportunity to meet him to be able to decypher his writing. I think it says TEB, but I am not confident.

Biers I have featured a fair bit in this blog and I continue to enjoy his style immensely. There is something about the design of his letters that really chimes for me, I don’t know if there is a retro thing going on or what, but it feels comfortable.

Finally, the right hand side of this collaboration is by Howl, and he is another artist with a very distinctive style, that often incorporates a dog, as in this example. This one is a real cutie with an orange swirl on his tummy.

All in all this is a cracking example of a top writing collaboration. Great work from No Frills.
