If life gives you tagging, make sauropods

So says our pal Deep, who you may remember came home Saturday night to discover that the plyceratops mural in front of his house had been graffiti bombed.  Well, that just gave him an excuse to hang out the next day (which happened to be a lovely sunny Sunday–nice work Indian summer!) with his buddy Adrian again to fix it.

Moreover, in doing so, they actually made it better, adding an additional dinosaur and some other small stuff to cover up parts of the offending tag.  I’m quite inspired by the deep philosophy here:  If someone tags your shit, tag it back!  You can complain all you want and you’ll probably even be right, but the best way to have an effect on the community is to get your hands dirty and do something about it yourself!

    Thanks Andrew!

    If you look carefully, you’ll see that Adrian didn’t just paint over the stupid-ass tag, he *incorporated* a tiny bit of it. It is the spine of the new sauropod dino! Adrian is neat like that!

    While we were working Destiny (the painted triceratops) said “Yeah, I mean it could have been an asteroid.”

      You guys are the best. I love what you’re bringing to the neighborhood! Walking to Xanath/Udupi and Natural Resources this week (three separate occasions) I overheard people talking about the parklet/dinos/artwork every single time.

    This asshole is tagging artwork all over town, including the “fill-in the story” chalkboard comic strip on Divisadero. Somebody needs to dole out a little street justice to clue this twerp in on the rules of the game.
