BOO! Street Art Inspiration for Halloween

Boo! Halloween is tomorrow and you know your subway ride is going to have some Werewolves, Zombies, Sexy Nurses, and Mini Mouses (mice).

Also big fat hairy rats, but they are always there.

To help you get in the mood and for inspiration we have a lil’ selection of Street Art oddities and monsters that have popped up on the street in NYC. If you have not planned your costume yet, here are 40 costumes for lazy people. See you at the PARADE!

Can’t really be sure what is happening here, but The Jizzard could be spewing green stuff out of his mouth or he could be eating a Christmas tree. Also, not sure about the babe in the stilletoes, but she must be wondering what he is doing with his hand. Is this related to his name? (photo © Jaime Rojo)

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.

Crunch Crunch Crunch, Saturday Cartoons with Bortusk Leer

Since it’s Saturday and you are still in your pajamas and on your third bowl of sugar coated vampire cookie cereal, here’s a look at Bortusk Leers cartoons.  The Street Artist has a whole posse of monsters and characters that splurp and plop and zing out of his imagination onto sheets of old newspaper with a child’s paint brush and florescent non-toxic paint that is safe to eat.

The wheatpastes on New York streets look so guileless and unaffected that you might also think his work is simple and unstudied.  Truth is Bortusk is deliberate in his depictions of their crazy disproportions and he likes to poke fun at his creatures and play with the viewer.  Luckily for the artist and kids, he also learned how to animate his monsters and his inventive short stories have an audience on TV and the web too.
