A Monster Mash on the Streets

“I have never seen a greater monster or miracle in the world than myself.”

Michel Eyquem, seigneur de Montaigne (1533–1592)

Seeing a monster on the street can make you pick up your pace a little.

Especially if it is a dark windy autumn night and the block you are on has no working street light. And if the  leaves and garbage and random pieces of plastic are swirling in the air and clattering into cluttered little piles in the corners of doorways. Here’s an eclectic collection of spooks and skeletons and wild-eyed beasts created by today’s Street Artists and shot by photographer Jaime Rojo that may make your march along the footpath just a little more mysterious and monstrous as the wind picks up and you rush to your home for safety.

You know, a lot of people around the office like Echidna but I always think she has an empty sort of expression on her face that makes me wonder what she’s thinking. Michael DeNicola (photo © Jaime Rojo)
