Reach For the Sky . . .

To borrow a phrase from another blogger (thanks Amy for the ghost town and the inspiration !), after a BRUTAL day at work today, I needed a lift, and what better way to climb back up out of the gutter than by following the figure here, reaching for the sky ! This graffiti is by the well known artist Jerome Mesnager, who has a web site here where more of his work can be seen. He has been around the world leaving joyous traces like this far and wide ! (I took this photo in Paris in 1993)

Tu te tires "la bourre" avec nathalie qui présentait hier des Tags ? Dans tous les cas, j'aime bien ce personnage que j'ai souvent vu sur différents supports ! Hi man !

Ce soir, changement, il n'y pas de tisane..! Le fournisseur est tombé en panne près du Lavandou ! Mais il me reste de la tisane... Je t'en envoies par UPS ! Te trompes pas de carton comme l'autre fois !

Ciao Amigo !

Its always good to see 'graffiti' that is actually art and not some randome scribble! Can't think of any puns today, must pencil in some time to think.

Interesting. Almost looks like a body print.
