Cute little anecdotal story
I went to take pictures of one of my bodyless girl stencils a couple of weeks after painting them. As I approached the spot I already had my camera out for a quick snap and run, but when I got to the first stencil I realized some asshole had painted red splotches all over the eyes. I walk to the second and third stencil and all of them had been vandalized! There were three men standing in front and they asked me if I was the one who painted them. And I was all like, nooooo, I just saw it before and came back to take a picture. I don´t think they believed me cuz they asked me what they meant, twice. And I said I don´t know I just wanted to take a picture but they were ruined. They told me it was their place and that they came one morning and the stencils were there and that it´s too bad they were ruined now. I kinda excused my self and ran away before I realized that they actually liked the stencils and probably would have been all enthousiatic if I had fessed up. I told my friend Robert, my stencilling police watchman, and he said that his dad is friends with the guys at that shop and that they had told his dad that they were super stoaked about the stencils outside their shop and said things like, aw, look at the detail on the little fingers. I thought that was kinda cool, that people can actually like the junk you paint on their property without their consent.
