It feels good to post a new piece by Full Time Ghoul, because so many of his pieces end up in my archives without ever seeing the light of day, something I must resolve somehow, because I genuinely like his motif and the way he fills spots all over Bristol.

This trio of green skulls set on a fiery red and orange background is really rather special. I’m not too sure bout this, but the top of the skulls look like they spell OSM, although I have no idea what this stands for. Nice work from FTG.

I have said it before, but Full Time Ghoul is under-represented here on Natural Adventures. I have many of his mega-tag pieces in my archives, but simply haven’t posted many of them. This post begins to address the situation.

The eye-catching knot over the skull is an original idea and makes for a powerful identity. It also lends itself to columns and doors, which FTG certainly specialises in. This is a blue variant of the motif with a red border, although more often he uses yellows and greens. FTG has hidden this one under the M32.

Full Time Ghoul (FTG) is an artist who paints variants of the same interlocking ghoul head and who is poorly represented on Natural Adventures. I have many unpublished photographs of his work in my archives, and really need to dig them out and share them. This is a recent small piece on the reverse wall of one of the ramps in Dean Lane skate park.

Here we have three ghouls whose upper heads are reminiscent of a kind of Celtic cross design, with interwoven parts in a plait. The ghouls have red eyes and a black nasal cavity. The designs are simple but impactful, and FTG has made his mark all over the city.
